IC Markets - UK Election Trading Schedule

Please note that the following is a re-post, written by IC Markets, not Killa Gorilla FX Team. It contains important information and what it means if you are currently trading....


Dear Trader,

The UK General Election 2017 is scheduled to take place today, June 8th. This will create many trading opportunities for our fundamental traders, particularly across GBP, EUR, and CHF pairs, and of course the FTSE and additional European indices we offer. With every increased opportunity comes an increased risk, and we kindly ask our clients to be aware of potentially very volatile market conditions. Widened spreads and slippage are to be expected, as the banks may withdraw their liquidity from the market. UK Election and result schedule (All times BST):

Thursday 8th June • 07:00 - Polling stations open • 22:00 - Polling stations close • 22:00-23:00 - Exit poll results Friday 9th June • 00:00 - 02:00 - Declarations come in from across the country • 02:30 - Jeremy Corbyn's Islington North constituency result declared • 04:00 - Theresa May's constituency in Maidenhead, Berkshire, declares • 13:00 - Last seat to declare No leverage changes have been made, however, please ensure you have sufficient funds to withstand any adverse market movements that may affect your account.

Please reach out to our Support team if you have any questions, we are available 24/5 via our Live Chat and email (

From all of us at IC Markets, we wish you every success with your election trading! Kind regards, IC Markets
