Another Way To Gauge The Debate Winner
September 27, 2016
As investors chalked up the debate as a win for Hillary Clinton—seen as the more stable candidate—the Mexican peso jumped almost 2% and the S&P 500 was up 0.6% in after-hours trading. The Canadian dollar strengthened from its weakest level since March in a signal that investors think Clinton could win the election. As I post this the Dow Jones is up 137 points.
The markets know what is best for national interests.
