Good morning,

As the dust settles on the US Election result we see the markets return to a somewhat business as usual standpoint. Gold spiked up to just under $1340 per ounce as the State wide results were being announced and it became apparent that Donald Trump had a real chance to win. Once the result was no longer in doubt, market participants seemed to become resigned to the fact, and decided to offload their positions and cash in some profits. Yen and Suisse gained, but then again, as with Gold, the markets offloaded, and the prices returned to close towhat they had been before the counting started. The only real casualty has been the Mexican Peso, which is down 8.7% against the Dollar and the USDMXN pair was trading at 19.97 briefly reaching a high close to 20.70 when trading had started closer to 18.30
