“A period of political uncertainty lies ahead,” Citi said in a research note.

“Following what is widely regarded as a poor campaign and failure to translate a strong lead in the polls into a larger majority in the Commons, we expect May is likely to resign,” Citi said, adding that a new election was possible.
