On Tuesday night, Donald Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States and the stock market is not handling the news very well. In fact, the Dow Jones futures dropped dramatically when news initially broke that Trump was coming close to the presidency, according to multiple reports. There's an overall sense of shock over the election of Trump, as he gave his victory speech from New York City in the middle of the night in front of thousands of supporters.
It's currently unclear how a Trump presidency would fully impact the stock market and financial community as a whole, but it's clear that nobody was really prepared for this and that there are a large group of worried individuals out there. The Dow Jones futures dipped as much as 750 points throughout the night, and a number of international markets bounced around following the news of Trump's victory.
