    France election update: polling estimates widely cited project 23.7 for Macron and 21.7 for Le Pen based on tally of results - these are projections based on small samples - so we still have to wait for the official count. That results is largely in line with expectations going into this weekend.

    France's Interior Ministry early vote tallies show 24.2% to Le Pen and 21.4% to Macron - but these don't use the same methodology as above. Clear that we need to await official results before drawing conclusions.

    USDCAD has extend a rally that began over a week ago, supported by weaker-than-forecast Canadian inflation and a drop in oil prices. Meanwhile, French election jitters end on Sunday and begin anew on Monday as no candidate is seen winning an outright majority in this weekend's first round.

    WCU: Gold on French election alert, oil remains fragile
    Big swings have been seen in commodity prices this past month. The agricultural sector remains under pressure from excessive supply and heavy speculative selling. It took just one bearish data point to send oil lower after a three-week surge. Gold, supported by lower yields and the US dollar combined with safe-haven demand, is back testing key resistance

    Not so fantastic four

    Not so fantastic four
    The four front-runners in France's presidential election are too close in the polls ahead of Sunday's first-round ballot to rule out any permutation for the May 7 run-off. Yesterday’s rally in the euro was partly tempered by an opinion poll showing a narrower margin of victory for the centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron. For financial markets the most troubling combination would be a second round pitting the leftist Jean-Luc Melenchon with the far-right's Marine Le Pen.
