Euro falls as France's Juppe rules out presidential bid

Today's press

  • The euro fell on Monday after former French prime minister Alain Juppe ruled out standing in the country's presidential elections, which investors saw as increasing the likelihood of a victory by anti-EU leader Marine Le Pen.

  • With geopolitical risk dominating early trading – North Korea fired four ballistic missiles into nearby waters – this is another busy economic event week that see's an RBA (Monday 10:30pm EST) and an ECB (Thursday 7:45am EST) rate decision and an U.S non-farm payroll print (Fri. 8:30am).

  • European and US equity gauges are moving lower after Asian markets were rattled by North Korea firing missiles into the Sea of Japan, while markets continue to price in a rate rise by the Federal Reserve next week, particularly following the latest comments from Fed chief Janet Yellen.
