If Melenchon makes it to the runoff, he is projected to beat both Le Pen and Fillon by comfortable margins although he is seen losing to Macron 41% to 59%.

The election of the president is very crucial for the Eurozone economy overall.

However a possible run-off between Le Pen and Mélenchon remains a major concern for Euro investors as the "nightmare scenario" would see two Eurosceptic candidates go head to head, with both promising to hold a referendum on European Union membership should they be elected.

Le Pen, who leads the National Front, has made immigration and security a core part of her campaign. "Naivety is over", she said.

Macron also announced he would cancel rallies in Rouen and Arras to free up security forces who would need to be mobilized "to ensure the safety of our citizens", he said in a statement.

Security expert Glenn Schoen told CNN that Thursday's attack could have greater implications beyond the French vote. "Even this smaller incident, in comparison to some of the ones before, is going to have a fairly large impact", he said.

The spread between yields on 10-year German and French bonds widened to more than 75 basis points on 11 April as the jump in Melenchon's poll ratings saw fears rise he would face Le Pen in the final run-off vote.

Macron said Obama wanted to exchange views about the French presidential campaign and that the ex-president had stressed how important the relationship between the two countries was.

Meanwhile the Pound may relinquish some of it recent gains on Friday as the United Kingdom releases its latest Retail Sales figures, which are forecast to have plummeted from 1.4% to -0.2% in March, thanks to Easter falling later in the year in 2017.

Although there are 50,000 police on the streets, CNN's Bitterman points out, there are 60,000 polling stations.
