French election XTB impact and risk management

Kristina Frunze: “Is XTB planning to raise margin requirements or have any leverage change?”

XTB’s research team: “We are not planning on raising margin requirements or making any changes to current leverage levels. “

Le Pen to complete hattrick of political surprises?

Kristina Frunze: “What is your research team’s projection and analysis for the major pairs on the upcoming elections?”

XTB’s research team: “Despite the incident in Paris last night the markets have been fairly subdued this week, with the Euro higher against most of its major crosses with little by the way of caution being shown amongst traders. Barring a stronger than expected showing from Le Pen or a Le Pen – Melenchon final round there appears to be a fairly market positive outcome already being priced into the single currency which could mean any relief rally is short lived and the potential for a larger shock is therefore higher.

Several major crosses sit at interesting levels going into the event with the EURUSD rising to its highest level of the month during Thursday’s session before price ran into resistance at the 200 day SMA. The EURJPY could well be the most volatile FX cross to watch due to the JPY’s safe haven appeal whilst the EURGBP is currently sitting near possibly key support and the neckline of a potential head and shoulders pattern at 0.8300.”
