Macron took the lead on the French election, bypassing the party leader "national front" Marine Le pen, according to the official data of the interior Ministry, which is responsible for the organization and tabulation. According to 22.34 local time (22.34 MSK), after the counting of 26.1 million ballots (70%), Makron gets 23.11 per cent, Marine Le Pen — 23.08 percent.

Investors feared that the second round can go, Le Pen and the leader of the movement "Rebellious France," Jean-Luc Mélenchon. The plans of both candidates could exert influence on the General policy of the Eurozone. Some analysts and investors believe that the result of the first round could be the impetus to growth in appetite for european assets.
