The German Federal Election, 2017

The German federal elections will be held in Germany on 24 September 2017. This national poll will elect the members of the 19th Bundestag. All major political events like this are also “market events”, which affect the trading markets. Angela Merkel’s incumbent Christian Democratic Union/Christian Social Union (CDU/CSU), has shown a strong lead over its nearest rival, the Social Democratic Party (SPD), in recent opinion polling. However, earlier this year, only a single percentage point separated the two main parties. How will the German election affect the Forex and financial markets? What will it mean for Europe’s largest economy? How will the Euro react? What about the German index, DAX30? Or the German stock market index – one of the biggest and most important trading instruments in the world? Regardless of the result, market fluctuations and volatility are expected. But don’t forget: volatility can also be your friend! Active traders trade market movements, up and down. Our message to the trading community is: “know who your friends are and treat them correctly!”.This dedicated election page will tell you everything you need to know to trade the news before, during and beyond this landmark political event.

Angela Merkel - CDU
Martin Schulz - SPD
Dietmar Bartsch und Sahra Wagenknecht - Left Party
Katrin Göring-Eckardt & Cem Özdemir - Alliance ‘90 / Green Party
Christian Lindner - FDP
Alexander Gauland & Alice Weidel - AfD
CANDIDATE #1
Angela Merkel - CDU
German Chancellor for nearly 12 years, Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and coalition partners – the Christian Social Union (CSU) and Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD) – have dominated the Bundestag since her inaugural victory in 2005. It’s widely expected that the country’s first female chancellor will keep her job after 24 September, but how will the coalition fare? Will a reshaped parliament limit her power?
CANDIDATE #2
Martin Schulz - SPD
Leader of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD) and former President of the European Parliament (2012 - 2017). Previous to his Presidency of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz was leader of its Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats group. In 2016, he announced that he would not stand for a third term in Brussels but would stand as the SPD candidate for the chancellorship.
CANDIDATE #3
Dietmar Bartsch und Sahra Wagenknecht - Left Party
Top candidates for the Left Party in Germany are not the party’s leaders, Katja Kipping and Bernd Rixinger, the top candidates are the party whips Dietmar Bartsch and Sahra Wagenknecht. While Wagenknecht stands more for the “left wing” elements of the party, Bartsch is more of a moderate. At the last federal election 2013 the party received 8.6% of the vote.
CANDIDATE #4
Katrin Göring-Eckardt & Cem Özdemir - Alliance ‘90 / Green Party
The co-leaders of the Alliance ‘90 / Green Party, Göring-Eckardt and Özdemir, have a chance of entering into a coalition government following this German federal election, as it`s thought that they’re a favoured potential partner of Angela Merkel’s CDU.
CANDIDATE #5
Christian Lindner - FDP
Leader of the Free Democratic Party (FDP) since 2013, Lindner’s centre/centre-right party received just 4.8% of the vote in 2013, narrowly beating the AfD into last place. That total wasn’t enough to win any seats in the Bundestag last time out, but will they be more successful in 2017?
CANDIDATE #6
Alexander Gauland & Alice Weidel - AfD
The eurosceptic AfD – began the new year in very strong fashion, boasting as much as 15 per cent of the vote. The far-right party hoped to be the leading beneficiary of some of the fears surrounding the migrant crisis. Co-leaders – Gauland and Weidel – have also aimed to play the ‘populist’ card, hoping to emulate Trump’s success in the US, or pull off a Brexit-style surprise. Polling figures are down from that early high, but should they make gains in this election, expect them to grab the headlines.
