Dollar drops, US futures rise as midterms lead to split Congress

Highlights

Treasurys gain, dollar falls on U.S. midterms.

Split Congress poses hurdles for Trump administration.

Wall Street futures gain after elections; European equities rise.

The dollar fell and Treasurys rose as investors weigh the political landscape after the U.S. voted for a split Congress in the 2018 midterm elections, as projected.

The Democrats swooped a majority in the House of Representatives, while the Republicans retained control of the Senate with a higher margin as per the latest results reported by the Associated Press. The House could support President Donald Trump in accomplishing aspects of his legislative agenda, as both the president and congressional Democrats are interested in a pursuing a federal infrastructure program, though partisan fissures and deficit concerns could slow that momentum.
