European shares fell and the dollar dipped against the yen on Tuesday as tensions over North Korea and the coming weekend's knife-edge presidential election in France, and the surprise snap election call this morning in Britain by Prime Minister Theresa May (hoping to get a strong mandate for Brexit negotiations), kept investors nervous. Low-risk government debt, a favoured investment in uncertain times, was in demand, while gold held firm close to five-month highs touched on Monday, the day after a failed ballistic missiles test by Pyongyang. With market activity reduced in the past week due to Easter holidays, investors have focused on political factors that also include Syria and U.S. relations with Russia and China.
