THE results of the US Presidential election are almost upon us and it is still very much in the lap of the gods as to who will win.
Last week, Currencies Direct took a poll of their customers as the value of the dollar could be very important and could move either way over the next 24 hours and perhaps affect the euro as well.
There was a large response as canny customers will be keeping a very close eye on the result and in the customer vote the result was quite emphatic with the majority of customers predicting that Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton would be victorious – 60 per cent to be exact – whilst 40 per cent saw billionaire Republican Donald Trump as the most likely candidate to take up office in the White House. These results are in-line with many polls released in recent days.
So, with the smart money seemingly set on a Clinton victory, will the results of this poll prove to be in tune with the US electorate? The next 24 hours will tell…
The US dollar could well be in for a rollercoaster ride over the next 24 hours, and the staff at Currencies Direct will be monitoring the currency markets as closely as ever.
