It Looks Like France Will Not Get A Trump Type President
Macron and Le Pen will face off against each other in the final election for the French presidency. Le Pen has about 24% of the vote and Macron has a bit higher percentage. However, the candidates from France's major political parties, who lost to Macron and Le Pen, will support Macron in the final election. Macron should receive about 60% of the vote and become President of France. Things could change if there is another terrorist attack but the markets are reflecting a Macron victory. The Euro has begun to rise versus the dollar and the Japanese yen.
