I believe it is because the media has been predictin a Clinton sweep for weeks and the stock brokers hate uncertainty.

There was a futures trading halt, but they are trading again. The plummet accelerated as it began to appear that Trump will win.

Also, the Canadian immigration website crashed due to the number of hits from the US. Kid you not.

You should have already been building that fence. Looks like a Fascist US is now a reality.

Asian stocks slammed. Nikkei down over 900.

Trump wants to meet with Putin as soon as possible, before taking office.

The rest of the world is seriously disturbed by his probable election.

The R's have won the Presidency, the Senate, and the House. Now they get to pack the US Supreme Court with conservatives.

It was a different sort of election. Now the political pendulum swings to the Right.

Japan finance officials in emergency talks after U.S. election shock
Japan's top economic officials are scrambling to respond to the financial market turmoil unleashed by the U.S. presidential election.

The country's finance ministry and central bank were holding an emergency meeting Wednesday afternoon after wild trading in Japan's stock market and currency.

Japan wasn't the only country hit by the election fallout. Other Asian markets dropped, and U.S. stock futures plunged.



Foreign governments are going OMG, those morons really are the majority in the US.

When the stock markets plunge, it creates opportunity to buy at bargain prices.

looks like approx. 700,000 votes between Hillary and Trump

out of 110 million votes counted.....so far

expect interest in Europe, Canada , Australia/NZ to spike

China, Japan , korea could hit a tailspin

global recession around the corner?

That slight difference in voting is what's keeping me from severe depression Kiwichick. At least we can say that only a slim majority of people in America believe in misogyny, racism and boorishness. But this is also a stark example of "Against ignorance the Goddess herself strives in vain."

As has been said though we are entering uncharted territory. For a taste of what may happen look at the state of Kansas. :-(

One possible silver lining: Trump's destruction of the global economy will probably curtail carbon emissions...

Another thing that pops into my head: Trump and his Republican allies will do some serious economic destruction. They'll curtail civil liberties, and foment racial and ethnic strife. That would be a situation ripe for an even more fascist-type candidate. A possible future for the American empire? Scary.

I'm thinking maybe New Zealand would be a good place to be.

I guess the DJIA is back up again today. We'll see. I really don't like what's happened, but at least we don't have a stock market crash on top of it all. There is plenty of time for that. I really hope he can hold this thing together for a couple more years.

Obergruppenführer Cog, has already strapped on his armband.

Look Cog, they even have T-shirts.

And hats already cocked sideways so you look appropriately stupid.

Amazon Prime has a series about what life under the Trump dictatorship will be like.
