    We've all been hearing about it....for the last three years or so and it's all coming to fruition tonight. Presently it looks like Trump is leading and stock markets are crashing...S&P and Nasdaq futures are presently down about 4.5%. This is a huge move in one day/night for markets. Let's see if things swing back.

    Is anyone really into these politics? I'm not really, but I can't help but be a bit curious about it given the controversy surrounding both candidates and the potential repercussions if Trump is elected. Does anyone else feel like this is some sort of bad reality show? LOL!

    Well people seem shocked but i was expecting Trump to Win, do i care not to much.

    However i sell lots of stuff on ebay, so a lower CAD vs USD works for me..

    I think both are horrid choices, but isn't that usually how politics goes?

    World is ending?

    Dollar opened today at 74.59, closing at 74.58.

    Everyone predicts world economies in turmoil ... or is it just like every election? Everyone gets worked up, and after the show's over, all us a little people go back to our regular lives and not a single thing has changed.
