APR 11 2017- France's presidential election is rapidly approaching, and Goldman Sachs is telling investors to stay cautious.

The investment banking giant recommended Monday that investors short French bond futures expiring in June ahead of the contest, amid the possibility that anti-establishment candidate Marine Le Pen or Jean-Luc Melenchon could stun pollsters with a win.
Political polling recently has been a terrible predictor of actual election results, internationally. Polls heading into last year's Brexit vote and the U.S. presidential election were mostly wrong, causing shockwaves across financial markets.
In France, investors predict that a Le Pen or Melenchon victory would likewise send markets into a frenzy.

As mentioned in the past weeks and month: There are huge Billion-Euro bets against Europe outstanding now.
Kommentar:
APR 12 2017 - This aren´t peanuts. This are multi billion Euro or Dollar bets aganist Europe based on fears and probably not precise research about the upcomming France election. The main argument is that "polls had been wrong" before the Brexit and the US-Election.
