The US political landscape — and with it, the trajectory of the capital markets — looked set to unfold in individual voting districts over the coming hours and days. But soon, the focus will broaden once more and investors will attempt to map out their long-term view of where to place their money, write Lewis McLellan, Sam Kerr, Mariam Meskin and Oliver West.

    No blue wave but US stimulus still likely

    Just because it seems unlikely that in the US election the Democrats will take both the White House and the Senate, it does not mean that capital markets should become despondent about a fiscal stimulus package that could have reached $2.3tr had the so-called "blue wave" made a clean sweep.

    Messy US election delays imminent equity issuance

    Equity markets awoke on Wednesday morning to an inconclusive US presidential election where there is no clear winner between US president Donald Trump and his challenger, former vice president Joe Biden.

    Pre-election window closes too early for Ion

    Ion Analytics has postponed a $1.85bn leveraged loan financing the combination of Dealogic and Acuris, blaming "market volatility ahead of today’s US presidential election".

    Fed to underpin EM whoever wins White House race

    Donald Trump and Joe Biden each present a different set of medium-term risk factors for emerging markets if they win next week’s US presidential elections. But the US Federal Reserve’s promise to keep rates lower for longer — combined with unprecedented monetary policy support from other developed market central banks — should provide a cushion that is more relevant to EM bonds than the Oval Office’s occupant. Mariam Meskin and Oliver West report.
