Movements in the currency markets suggest that Hillary Clinton put on a more convincing show than the Republican nominee. The Mexican peso, buoyed by this view, rose 2 percent and recovered from record lows against the U.S. dollar.
The peso was on track for its best daily performance since February, lifting the higher-yielding Canadian dollar along with it. Canada, like Mexico, has close trade ties with the U.S. and is part of the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Markets have tended to see Clinton as someone who is likely to retain status quo, while few are sure what a Trump presidency might mean for U.S. foreign policy, international trade deals or the domestic economy.
