2016 Election Note

The only thing markets dislike more than uncertainty is an outright surprise.Very few observers or pollsters gave Donald Trump much of a chance to win the election. The election proved to be one of the biggest political surprises in history. As it became clearer that Trump would win, the US stock market sold off 5.8% in the overnight futures market before rallying to close up 1.1% the day after the election in an incredible and historic round-trip.
