French Election Barely Caused a Ripple in Markets

With no economic reports coming out today and little earth shaking news around the globe, stocks remained virtually flat today.  Surprisingly though the NASDAQ with just a 1.9 point gain was able to eke out a new all time high record once again.  Although the size of the landslide in the French Presidential election was impressive, markets here took it in stride.  Despite Marine Le Pen's mortifying defeat, she was still able to garner a greater percentatge of the vote than any far right candidate had in the past.  The Dow closed up a mere 5 points today.

At least one extreme right winger bit the dust. There is hope for the European Union.
