French centrist presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron's performance Monday evening in France's first televised presidential debate caused the euro to reach a six-week high.

Macron boosted the view he would win France's presidency over far-right candidate Marine Le Pen who has run on an anti-euro message.

A poll by Harris Interactive, a market research firm, today showed that Macron was the most convincing candidate during the debate.
