UK election leads to hung parliament, May set to lose her majority * Comey calls Donald Trump dishonest, but doesn’t deliver a smoking gun * Slightly dovish market interpretation of the ECB meeting

Morning MarketsTF
Britons have done it again and this time from the left. The Tories failure to seize a majority reflects UK voters' alienation from the political centre. The Brexit negotiations are now in a cloud of doubt as the shape and form of the country's next government is unknown; the pound once again is in free-fall.

From the FloorTF
In a stunning backfiring of prime minister Theresa May's strategy, the British Conservative Party failed to win a majority in Thursday's election, leaving the UK with a hung parliament and a weak hand to negotiate Brexit. The pound fell sharply on the Tories' election humiliation, and GBP could be in for further losses as the election outcome creates huge uncertainty.

FX Update TF
Sterling weakened sharply the instant the exit poll was released last night and looks soft this morning as the result merely extends the painful uncertainty of how the Brexit negotiations will shape up. Elsewhere USD ticks up after Comey testimony and dovish Draghi keeps EURUSD subdued.
