The mid-term elections, as expected, made a split in Congress and the results fell early on Wednesday.
For the first time since 2010, the Democrats held the majority in the Assembly, while the GOP held the Senate's control; however, President Donald Trump's play in the first two years was a referendum vote.
The result seems to indicate that the president will start to challenge the legislative powers of his early office in the Oval Office, because he will be confronted with headwaves to promote or expand economic policies, including increased spending and more spending. Tax reductions have acknowledged that management supports markets and the economy.
It is not clear how changes in the political landscape will change Trump's agenda, or how investors will interpret the new cadre framework at the top. However, the resulting congestion in Washington may be a boon to the bulls:
Trump called the early morning tweet elections a great victory:
Last night, I received a lot of congratulations from our Great Victories. These are foreign nations (friends) who are waiting for me outside and assessing international trade opportunities. Now we can go back to work and get our work done!
– Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 7, 2018
The presidential elections are scheduled to hold a press conference to discuss with Eastern Time:
I will hold a press conference at the White House – 11:30 A.M. We will discuss our achievements in midterm exams!

What did strategists say?
Er In a loveless way, capital markets have probably achieved the desired result. The concern that an imperial Republican party with both houses had adopted another round of tax cuts and thus increased the deficit was withdrawn. Meanwhile, concern may have been that tax cuts and regulatory changes could be revoked or canceled if the Democrats recovered both homes, Bu he wrote. Sean Darby, head global strategist Jeffermine tos, early Wednesday research report.
Dolar At least for now, the only sign that has changed in the financial markets after the US mid-term elections is a weak Dollar. Greenback is currently against all other major currencies.

Ricardo Evangelistasenior analyst activtrades Wednesday's note referred to corporate tax cuts, which came into force in late 2017.
Lar The US dollar index was sold because the Democrats took control of the House of Representatives, and the Republicans retain control of the Senate. While Greenback is feeling the lives of the merchants, it will be difficult to see President Trump's congress divided. Given the success of the Democrats, Mr. Trump's chances for an additional tax cut have fallen, ın he wrote. David Madden, market analyst CMC Markets.
Some market strategists had predicted Wednesday that they would lead to stronger gains on the days after the vote. In the coming days, weeks and months, the gains in stock markets tended to be monitored:

Bond traders may see a split Congress as an uptrend for Treasury prices. Fixed-income investors expect Democrats to lower their expectations for other tax cuts or other measures to increase budget deficits that create piracy among bond investors, as they increase their debt taxes.

Trump criticized Fed President Jerome Powell, who backed the path from the crisis period to normalizing the interest rate policy. Some market participants fear that after a split convention, Trump will use the Fed as a possible scapegoat if the economy starts showing cracks. It has already adopted a very critical attitude towards Powell. The Fed is scheduled to begin a two-day policy meeting Wednesday. An updated statement was made from the central bank for 2:00 Thursday evening. MEAT.
A division in Washington may force the Trump administration to soften its stance on countries like Iran. The US president showed some sanctions against Iran's exports after allowing the Iranian crude oil to continue after eight countries despite the US. Economic sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
