Results Are In: Trump Wins, Markets Plunge then Rebound

It appears that polls and projections in the past few days and weeks have turned out to be severely inaccurate in predicting the outcome of the 2016 US presidential election. After a long and heart-pounding election night, Donald Trump achieved a market-shocking upset by pulling ahead from behind and ultimately defeating Hillary Clinton to become the new President-elect of the United States. Additionally, Republicans retained control in both the US Senate and House of Representatives for a clean GOP sweep.

Markets Gap on Likelihood of Clinton Win

Stock markets, the dollar, gold, and the Mexican peso all reacted sharply over reports on Sunday that the FBI has not discovered any further incriminating evidence in its re-launched review of Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton’s past emails. FBI Director James Comey wrote in a letter to Congress, “based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.” In July, the FBI had stated that it would not pursue charges against Clinton over her use of a private email server when she was US Secretary of State.

Mexican peso falls as Trump's prospects rise

Despite a generally ailing US dollar on Tuesday due in part to heightened risk imposed by next week’s elections, the greenback rose sharply against the Mexican peso as Donald Trump’s presidential prospects continued to be lifted by Hillary Clinton’s ongoing email troubles.

USD/MXN heading for further breakdown as peso extends recovery

Despite acute US dollar strength throughout the month of October thus far, the USD/MXN currency pair has been in a virtual state of free fall due to a sharp and prolonged rebound for the Mexican peso that has corresponded with the deterioration of Donald Trump’s campaign for the US presidency.

US Presidential Election: Last Debate and Final Stretch

The third and last debate between the two main candidates in the final stretch before the US presidential election is set to take place in Las Vegas on Wednesday night. It’s rather fitting that the near-culmination of the two rivals’ bitter back-and-forth feuding should occur in a city known best for its gambling industry – it’s largely a matter of chance as to what will be in store for the nation and the world in this heavily-anticipated bashing contest.

US Election Trade: USD/MXN plunges as Trump's peso pressure eases

When it comes to currencies, the highly-touted “Trump Trade” has revolved largely around the Mexican peso. It has been no secret that US Presidential Candidate Donald Trump’s heavily protectionist trade policies, not to mention his stance on immigration, have targeted Mexico in particular. Besides proposing to build a wall between the US and Mexico, Trump has also repeatedly expressed his staunch opposition to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and has proposed broad restrictions on both Chinese and Mexican imports. The result has been increasing speculation that if Trump is seen to win the presidency, the Mexican peso could suffer dramatically against the US dollar.

USD/MXN bears need a Peso-maker after this year’s start

As we’ve noted repeatedly over the first trading week, emerging market currencies have been getting walloped as panicked FX traders sell any holdings they see as risky for the perceived safety of the US dollar and Japanese yen. As the chart at the bottom of this report shows, the Mexican peso has certainly not been spared from the EM FX massacre.
