TODAY’s FACTORS AND EVENTS
European markets are expected to open higher Monday after pro-European Union candidate Emmanuel Macron secured a comfortable victory to become the next president of France.
Investors had predicted a decisive victory for Macron would be the most likely outcome, yet the absence of a Brexit-style political upset appeared to produce a collective sigh of relief on Monday. The market-friendly candidate defeated far-right rival Marine Le Pen as he took around 66 percent of the votes versus approximately 34 percent for the National Front leader.
