Wall Street shares are set to struggle on French elections

On Monday, American stock futures rebounded, showing that market participants might be ready to cash in on the previous week’s jobs-fueled revenues, after the weekend win for France’s President-elect Emmanuel Macron didn’t manage to offer much inspiration for equities.

Dow Jones Industrial Average futures YMM7 lost 0.2%, trading at 20,917, S&P 500 futures ESM7 sank 0.2% too, hitting 2,393.25. As for Nasdaq-100 futures ESM7, they declined 0.13%, demonstrating 5,638.

The S&P 500 SPX along with the Nasdaq Composite COMP indexes concluded at records the previous week, reacting to Friday’s stronger-than-expected April employment data. Additionally, the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA concluded higher, trading above 21,006.94.

As for Asian stocks, they appeared to be one of few places, which were obtaining an upbeat boost from Sunday’s victory that was mostly expected. Far-right nominee Marine Le Pen has been defeated by French centrist Macron. Losses for American stock futures surged moderately because EU shares pulled back from a nine-year peak, with the French CAC 40 index PX1 tumbling 0.61%.
