Poll: For investors, is the UK election important?

With the U.K. general election just days away, latest polls suggest the outcome is still too close to call.

A YouGov poll for the Sunday Times over the weekend put Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservative Party at a one percentage point lead over the opposition Labor Party's 34 percent. Sunday Times is the largest-selling Sunday newspaper in Britain.

Another survey by polling organization ComRes showed both parties running neck and neck, with 33 percent votes each.

After a sharp drop against the dollar on Friday, ticked up 0.1 percent in early Asian trade as markets braced for a potentially messy election outcome.

"The U.K. elections are going down to the wire," Evan Lucas, IG's market strategist, wrote in a note early Monday. "It looks like the conservatives will win the most seats, but the Labor Party is likely to form a minority government in a first-past-the-post scenario. The British pound is going to be very interesting to watch as it is still anyone's race."
