Literally some several hours after Trump’s shock victory, markets continue to react on the news. The pound dipped in and out of negative territory in volatile trade as the dollar recovered against a basket of currencies on Monday, but firmed in a remarkable snapback later on Thursday.
Oil edged higher, Asian shares rallied on Thursday.
The Nikkei emerged even stronger, jumping 7% at one point after sinking 5% on Wednesday.
Australian stocks soared 3.3% in the largest daily gain since late 2011 and Shanghai rose 1.3%.
The Dow jumped 1.4% and the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq both added 1.11%.
S&P futures edged up 0.3% on Thursday.
Copper rose to a near 16-month high on expectations that a Trump presidency could unleash a flood of infrastructure spending.
People’s reactions to Trump’s victory however have been waaay much shocking than the market movements itself. Not to mention all those celebrities, who vowed to leave the U.S. if Trump got elected…
Bryan Cranston said he hopes he doesn’t have to pack his bags, but would “definitely move” if Trump won.
Samuel L. Jackson slammed Trump for running a “hate”-filled campaign and said he would move to South Africa if he wins. “If that motherf***er becomes president, I’m moving my black ass to South Africa,” the movie star quipped to Jimmy Kimmel.
Lena Dunham told Andy Cohen at the Matrix Awards that “I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will. I know a lovely place in Vancouver.”
Neve Campbell, an actress on the political drama “House of Cards,” vowed to move back home to Canada, while actress Natasha Lyonne said she would hightail it to a mental hospital.
Here are few more of the funniest/saddest reactions:
