    From the Floor: Macron victory sparks mighty relief rally— #SaxoStrats

    #SaxoStrats
    A first-round victory in Sunday's French presidential election for the centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron has ignited a sharp and broad relief rally across financial markets, with equity prices jumping and safe-haven gold and bonds sold off. Macron is tipped to handily defeat the far-right, anti-establishment contestant Marine Le Pen in the second-round ballot on May 7, but worries remain about the June parliamentary election.

    Morning Markets: EURUSD basks after Macron win
    Emmanuel Macron was the favourite going into the first round of the French presidential election and his emergence as victor ahead of the Front National's Marine Le Pen will have him as the red-hot favourite in the run off on May 7. Euro is feeling the glow.

    WCU: Gold on French election alert, oil remains fragile

    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

    From the Floor: Markets pricing in Macron victory

    #SaxoStrats
    Bond markets are pricing in a victory for the centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron in the first round of France's presidential election this weekend, and gold could be headed for a correction if the outcome of the French vote is deemed market-friendly. A terror attack that killed one policeman and wounded two others on the Champs-Elysees on Thursday evening has so far triggered only a modest risk-off reaction.

    From the Floor: Risk premium flight hits oil — #SaxoStrats

    #SaxoStrats
    Oil bulls were counting the cost after an unexpected build in gasoline inventories spooked markets and helped encourage flight already underpinned by the gradual reduction in the risk premium. The French election race meanwhile is heating up, sending the French/German 10-year spread to a near five-year close high.

    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.
