Markets, Dollar Plunge as Donald Trump Takes White House
« on: November 09, 2016, 03:32:57 pm »
There has been shocking financial reactions in the international market since the announcement of Donald Trump as the winner of the U.S. presidential election.



Share markets plunged on Wednesday and the dollar tumbled against the yen and the euro as Donald Trump was elected US president, in a stunning upset with major implications for the world economy.
 
The Mexican peso also fell to a record low as safe-haven assets soared, with gold rising more than five percent and German government bonds rallying. Fears about the impact on financial markets led Japanese and South Korean authorities to call crisis talks.
Initial confidence that market favourite Hillary Clinton would win vanished as results showed the firebrand tycoon picking up the major scalps needed to take the White House.

After he won a swathe of states, Clinton called Trump to concede, handing him the keys to the White House. Markets have been plunged into turmoil as Clinton was considered by many investors to be a safer bet than Trump, who is seen as a loose cannon with policies many fear could wreck the world’s number-one economy.

 
“It’s been a bloodbath in the markets over the last few hours with the Mexican peso suffering particularly,” said Craig Erlam, senior market analyst at OANDA. Tokyo had collapsed 5.4 percent by the end of trade, while Hong fell 2.2 percent and Shanghai sank 0.6 percent.
 
Sydney gave up almost two percent, Seoul shed 2.3 percent and Singapore dived 1.8 percent. Wellington plunged 3.3 percent while Taipei was 3.0 percent off. Manila skidded 2.5 percent and Jakarta two percent.
 
The Sen$ex on the Bombay Stock Exchange was three percent off, having initially plummeted more than six percent on Trump’s performance and news that high-denomination notes were being pulled from circulation as part of a crackdown on tax evasion.
 
Futures on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq on Wall Street dived more than five percent at one point while those on the Dow were off four percent. In early European trade London fell 1.9 percent, Paris lost 2.8 percent and Frankfurt dived 2.9 percent.
– Crisis talks –

 
The Mexican peso — which was battered by Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric earlier in the campaign — hit a record low against the dollar. The greenback soared to 20.7128 pesos, around its highest-ever point and about 12 percent up on earlier levels, before paring back slightly.
 
Trump’s anti-Mexican promises have included a pledge to remove undocumented immigrants, build a border wall and tear up a trade deal. Mexico’s Finance Minister Jose Antonio Meade and central bank chief Agustin Carstens will address the media later in the day to outline actions after the peso’s losses.
 
The dollar tumbled against the yen as investors rushed into the Japanese unit, which is considered a safe bet in times of uncertainty. The greenback sank to 101.30 yen from above 105 Tuesday before edging back up to 103.00 yen. The sharp moves led Japan’s central bank and government to hold emergency talks as a stronger yen hammers the country’s crucial exporters.
 
Later it emerged Seoul’s financial regulatory body would hold an emergency meeting with executives at major local banks to monitor the impact of the result. The South Korean won was down 1.3 percent.
 
The euro also rose 2.1 percent against the dollar, while gold soared 5.4 percent at one point — its biggest rally since Britain’s June vote to leave the EU, which also jolted markets.
 
High-yielding currencies in Asia-Pacific were battered against the dollar, with Australia’s dollar 0.9 percent off, Indonesia’s rupiah down 0.8 percent and the Malaysian ringgit 0.4 percent lower.
 
Oil prices plunged, with both main contracts more than two percent down.
