Macron handily wins French presidential election—an upbeat sign for the stock market.

The euro EURUSD, +0.1183% jumped 0.3% to $1.1029, compared with $1.099 late Friday in New York.

Centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron has won the French presidential election with 65.5% of the votes, against 34.5% for rival Marine Le Pen, according to early exit-polling estimates from Kantar-Sofres, with about 50% of the votes tallied.


Le candidat d'En Marche ! devient le huitième président de la Ve République avec 65,5 % des voix, battant largement Marine Le Pen.

I know many people [like my sister] did not vote FOR Macron - but AGAINST Le Pen.

Remind you of something ???

The result was expected. If somehow the opposite happened things probably would go haywire as one of the two strongest countries in the EU and eurozone would have elected an anti-EU President.

I don't know the future but Brexit and Trump hasn't turned out to be a trend.

  Did you mean sarcasm? Oh, the irony.

reminds me of one of your past president who said:

" French is such a poor language that it does not have a word for entrepreneur "

no irony - no sarcasm: he really meant it.

Futures look flat, seems to be mostly priced.  I thought there was a chance Le Pen would do better (and still not win), so this is probably some relief for the European markets, short term volatility, etc.  Maybe mildly positive, maybe nothing.

California's GDP is bigger than France's w/ about 40% less people. Texas's GDP is about 2/3 the size of France despite having 1/3 the population. Texas is bigger in land area than France. France is an insignificant driver in the world economy.

  But the EU is a huge player, and not having one of its key members be run by a Nazi is definitely a plus.

Generally don't mix politics with investments, and don't take predictions too seriously, i.e. notice that Britain's markets have done well since Brexit, or when some bond rating companies downgraded the credit rating of the US, the dollar didn't drop but instead rose.  Ignore the pundits on Fox Business, CNBC, and NBR.  If you have to take anyone on TV seriously, maybe it's the guests on WealthTrack.com.
