The story behind the numbers

In Europe, the week started in a broadly positive fashion as investors welcomed the news of the pro-EU economic reformer Emmanuel Macron succeeding in his bid for the French presidency.

In the UK, news that Prime Minister May called for a snap general election to be held on the 8th June to provide for stability and certainty during the Brexit negotiations have surprised on the upside, with markets and investor sentiment improving notably across the course of April.
