Trade the French Election with Saxo

At Saxo we are determined to help you navigate through volatility and keep ahead of the latest developments surrounding the French election.

Brexit, Trump and volatility defined 2016 and Europe can only expect more turbulence in 2017 as a spate of divisive European national elections loom through the year.  The French election is the first to test markets, potentially impacting currencies and equities across Europe.

Any outcome save a strong second-round Macron win is low-odds stuff. So rather than fretting these scenarios, let us consider what a Macron victory might bring for both the EU and the Euro.

It's obvious that investors want Emmanuel Macron to win. If Marine LePen wins, we could easily see European equities lower by 10-20%.
