Trump is the President, and the world has not come to an end. In fact, so far today, it is business as usual.
The pundits that forecast that a Trump presidency would have bone jarring reactions worldwide, and in fact in overnight trade it looked like that was exactly what would unfold.
But in the reality of the light of day markets have opened as if it were just another trading day.
However, there will be winners and losers and at this point trade becomes the big question mark for Canada and although Trump has promised to tear up the Free Trade Agreement, in reality trade goes both ways and Canada is not only a supplier to the US but also a big customer for US goods.
The Canadian dollar has taken a major hit, however Trump is likely to be good for Alberta as pipelines are now immediately back on the agenda.
Gold, which rallied very significantly has fallen back to a normal trading range, but most importantly there has not been the devastation in the stock markets that were indicated overnight.
It will be a long road and with plenty of volatility so get ready for a bumpy ride, with large and breath catching moves, but as of this morning at least, it is business as usual.
Politics aside, a Trump presidency could very well be good for the American economy, and by association in the long run may even be positive for Canada.
