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.

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.
