UK election – possible market volatility

The UK goes to the polls on Thursday in the general election.

The results are due to start coming in from around 11pm (UK time) and will continue throughout the night and into early Friday morning.

BullionVault will of course be open 24/7 as usual. Please exercise caution if choosing to trade in what may prove a period of fast-moving action. The gap between buying and selling prices may become wider than normal.

As a reminder, you can also buy gold or silver at the daily global benchmark LBMA Gold or Silver Price. Your deal will be settled within 2 days. On the live Order Board, in contrast, settlement is instant. You can only buy or sell bullion already delivered inside the vault.

To keep track of live bullion prices, please use our live price chart, instant email price alerts or Twitter feeds.

On Friday our phone lines will be open an hour earlier then normal from 8am to 8:30pm (UK), 3am to 3:30pm (EST).
