Marcon wins French
Presidential Elections

Emmanuel Macron has won the 2017 Elections and will be inaugurated as the youngest ever President of France, beating right-wing and anti-EU Marine Le Pen by a large margin.

 

How Will The Second Round
Affect The EUR?

The world anxiously awaits the results of the second round of the French Presidential elections.  With Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen as the two remaining candidates, the French populace are faced with a critical vote with far-reaching results, extending beyond the borders of France and even Europe.  Likened to Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen represents the far right party and supports an anti-European manifesto which could lead to lasting rifts within the Eurozone and a much weakened Euro.  Macron on the other hand represents a more liberal manifesto with Socialist policies and a "democratic revolution".  The EUR benefited greatly from Macron winning the first round of the elections and markets responded positively with renewed optimism on EU matters.  With a wave of anti-immigration sentiment running through Europe and a rise in popularity of far right parties in the States, in the UK and elsewhere, the possibilities of a right-wing extremist such as Le Pen winning the vote cannot be ruled out.  Round 2 will take place on May 7th.  Polls suggest that Macron is likely to be victorious, which under regular circumstances will be positive for the EUR.  

 

A French revolution
to rock the Euro

The implications of the vote are far-reached and will have a tangible impact. While the two strongest candidates for the Presidency both promise to offer relief, change and an improved quality of life to the frustrated electorate, they both have very different ways of achieving such a result. Famously coining the EU as an ‘Anti-democratic monster’, Le Pen – President of the far-right party, The National Front - adopts a zero-tolerance approach to the Eurozone and pledges to take steps to follow Britain on the road to exit the EU. Helped by current anti-islam sentiment rife within France, Le Pen is currently topping the polls along with bookies’ favourite Emmanuel Macron, to win the race.

 

 


 

Why Are The Upcoming French
Elections Important?

On 23 April 2017, the French electorate will vote for a new President. Whilst market pundits are split on who is likely to take the Presidential title, all agree that the vote outcome may mean bad news for the European Union and for the Euro. The impact of the French elections will have consequences beyond France and beyond Europe, and is likely to impact on the global economy. How will you tailor your trading strategy to accommodate such impact?

 

Goodbye to an
unpopular President

Francois Hollande’s approval ratings with the French populace have fluctuated wildly during his tenure as President, ultimately securing him as one of the most unpopular French Presidents of all time. Presiding over a country struggling to overcome great economic difficulty, he has failed to fulfill his manifesto pledge to bring down unemployment, and leaves behind him a fragile, culturally diverse & disillusioned electorate.
