LIVE: Here’s how markets are reacting to the election results (SPY, SPX, DJI, IXIC, GLD, GLX, MXN, USD)

Election results are trickling in, and the reaction across markets is mixed.

First, the Mexican peso is surging. The peso jumped to 18.3385 per dollar after Hillary Clinton surged ahead in Florida. The currency retraced its earlier losses and is now flat after being down by 0.7%.

This currency pair has been the most watched of the election. A weaker peso has tracked higher odds of Donald Trump winning the election, given his past comments on toughening trade and immigration with Mexico.
