Yesterday, the daily poll showed: Macron at 23%, Le Pen at 22%, Fillon at 20% and Melenchon at 19%. In the second round, it showed Macron leading by 65% to 35% against Le Pen.
Earlier, a poll from Harris Interactive showed favorable results for Macron: leading with 25% points against Le Pen’s 22% and leaving Fillon and Melenchon back with 19%.
This was one of the reasons for the advance of EUR/USD. Another fuel comes from the renewed weakness of the US dollar, an ongoing Donald Disillusion.
Yesterday’s IFOP / Paris Match poll gave Macron the lead with 23.5%, Le Pen at 22.5%, Fillon at 19.5% and Melenchon at 18.5%.
EUR/USD is attacking the 11.0775 level of resistance which capped it early in 2017. Further resistance awaits at 1.0830, 1.0870 and 1.0905.
It is important to remember that many voters still do not know for who to vote.
