Friday's tragic events in Paris are set to have repercussions all over the world, and financial markets are no exception.
As the dust settles from the attacks which left 129 people dead and hundreds more injured, analysts began to ponder the geopolitical and economic implications.
Euronext, France's main securities market, said in a statement that business will proceed as usual—albeit with added precautions. "Markets will open as normal at Euronext on Monday," the exchange said in a statement. "Our priority is the safety of our staff and there will therefore be extra security in place in Paris on Monday."
Marc Chandler, head of FX strategy at Brown Brothers Harriman, said that investors' initial reaction would be to cut exposure to higher-yielding, risky assets.
"On one hand it pushes the market in a direction it was already moving in – to reduce risk. On the other hand, central banks don't let these sorts of things affect markets, and they could say they'll do whatever it takes to provide liquidity," he told CNBC.
Chandler added that the Paris attacks should push markets in a direction they were already going, with the dollar firming, bond prices rising, stocks falling and oil also falling.
"I think there might be a quick knee jerk response. I could see people trying to reduce risk. That means both longs and shorts have to get out. Bonds ended firmer Friday and stocks were selling off," he said.
