Updated  May 8, 2017 2:45:00 PM

Despite a landslide victory for Emmanuel Macron on Sunday’s French presidential election, the euro was unable to maintain the slight gains it initially made in the immediate aftermath of the election outcome.

EUR/USD coiled in a tight range ahead of Fed, Euro GDP, US jobs, French election

Updated  May 2, 2017 3:00:00 PM

EUR/USD has been coiled in a tightening trading range for the past week after the first round of the French presidential election in late April caused a sharp euro relief rally that was combined with general weakness in the US dollar. That rally and subsequent consolidation for EUR/USD will be put to the test in the coming days amid major economic and political events.

Gold pressured further as market risk perceptions remain subdued

Updated  May 1, 2017 3:00:00 PM

Despite a generally lagging US dollar, the price of gold continued to drop on the first day of May after having fallen for the past two weeks since mid-April’s year-to-date peak just below the $1300 handle. This sustained fall for gold can be attributed in part to rallying equity markets and low perceptions of market risk, which have significantly decreased the demand for safe-haven assets like gold and the Japanese yen. A highly-positive earnings season  [...] Continue Reading ...

In addition, as French voters approach the final round of their pivotal presidential election on May 7th, the euro could also see some significant movement  [...] Continue Reading ...

Continued Macron relief rally helps boost EUR/USD to extended 5-month high

Updated  Apr 25, 2017 2:40:00 PM

After centrist Emmanuel Macron’s victory in the first round of the French presidential elections on Sunday, the euro gapped up sharply against its major rivals, including the US dollar. Key to that substantial gap was the fact that the pro-euro Macron succeeded in garnering the additional support and endorsement of his former challengers, including both conservative Francois Fillon and Socialist Benoit Hamon. Therefore, despite anti-euro Marine Le Pen also advancing to the final round in  [...] Continue Reading ...
