    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.

    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.

    Morning Markets: FTSE100's 2017 gains wiped out
    The FTSE100 has been making hay from sterling's post-Brexit weakness that we'd almost forgotten what the downside looks like. But since Theresa May's call Tuesday for a snap election, all its 2017 gains have been wiped out and there could be more downside Thursday.

    Has Italy fallen out of love with the euro?

    Has Italy fallen out of love with the euro?
    The existential challenges to the euro from the European periphery are well known.
