Like many before her and no doubt many to come, Theresa May took a political gamble in trying to cement her position as the leader of the UK government.
Unfortunately for her, this proved to be a catastrophic miscalculation and she ended up with fewer MPs than she did before and was forced to cobble together an embarrassing deal with the Democratic Union Party.
In the immediate aftermath, markets remained subdued with only a contained weakness observed in sterling. UK stocks largely remained resilient as the country was thrown into political turmoil and uncertainty.
The resilience of UK stocks in the wake of the shock result may have been a surprise, but low volatility has become a feature of the ‘Brumpit’ era.
During the period of Brexit and Trump (Brumpit), the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have repeatedly shrugged off uncertainty and moves of 1% or more have become rare.
There was, however, pockets of selling in cyclical shares particularly exposed to the UK economy in the house builders and banks which could be a sign of things to come.
The selling was short-lived as markets looked through the mess created by the election and forward to Brexit negotiations.
As developments of the new government and Brexit talks were released to the market, analysts, stock brokers and traders have begun to position themselves for the world of a minority government negotiating the UK’s exit from the European Union.
