France election – possible market volatility

France goes to the polls on Sunday in the presidential run off between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen.

The results are due to start coming in from around 7pm (UK time), with gold and silver trading beginning in Asian hours from 11pm (UK time) on Sunday.

BullionVault will of course be open 24/7 as usual. Please exercise caution if choosing to trade in what may prove a period of fast-moving action. The gap between buying and selling prices may become wider than normal.

As a reminder, you can also buy gold or silver at the daily global benchmark LBMA Gold or Silver Price. Your deal will be settled within 2 days. On the live Order Board, in contrast, settlement is instant. You can only buy or sell bullion already delivered inside the vault.

To keep track of live bullion prices, please use our live price chart, instant email price alerts or Twitter feeds.
