European equities end the week strong but French election risk rises


  • Stoxx 600 +1.2%
  • German DAX +1.3%
  • FTSE 100 UK +1.4%
  • CAC France +1.3%
  • Italy MIB +2.0%
  • IBEX Spain +1.5%

In Week :

  • German DAX +0.5%
  • FTSE 100 UK +1.6%
  • CAC France -2.1%
  • Italy MIB -1.5%
  • IBEX Spain +1.4%

French actions have lagged as Le Pen draws nearly a tie with Macron ahead of the first round of presidential elections. The second round is April 24 and I expect that to continue to be a headwind.

The FTSE 100 has been impressive this week and is poised to challenge February’s highs, which few indexes can tell.
