Whether Valls' offer has been accepted will be known Thursday when the names of Macron's 577 candidates in the legislative elections will be announced.
Euro demand was also limited as any major election which results in a change in leadership always creates a certain level of market uncertainty over how the new leader will perform and what changes they may enact, which allowed sterling to push ahead of the single currency by the start of the European session. Le Pen has already called to congratulate Macron and conceded defeat to a gathering of her supporters in Paris. There are at least three scenarios of how it could play out.

At the global level, conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and South Sudan, marked by deliberate attacks on civilians and serious violations of worldwide humanitarian law, should be at the top of the new president's diplomatic agenda.
At the European level, in the context of Brexit and the rise of radical right populism, France should play a leading role in ensuring that the European Union's founding values of "respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality and the rule of law" are a priority of EU policy and hold member governments to account when they flout those values. Moreover, both favour French withdrawal from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and warmer ties with Russian Federation.
