Mexican Peso Climbs, Stocks Edge Up As Trump's Chances Seen Fading

IB Times: World

The Mexican peso climbed and U.S. stock futures crept higher on Monday as markets saw less chance of a victory by Republican nominee Donald Trump in his U.S. presidential bid amid a scandal over comments he made about women. A holiday in Tokyo limited the early reaction in equities and MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was barely in the black. EMini futures for the S&P 500 rose 0.2 percent, as did Australian stocks, while Shanghai firmed 1.2 percent as markets there returned from a long holiday.
