Sterling stabilises for now, but will the election create further spikes for GBP/CHF this week? (Joseph Wright)

The far-right political parties in France are seeing their highest levels of popularity in 30 years and just 2 weeks ago a French opinion poll put Marine Le Pen in the lead and this created enough Euro weakness to push the Pound to Euro rate to its highest level in 2017.
