The second presidential debate turned into a no-holds-barred attack by Donald Trump on Hillary Clinton, as the GOP nominee tried to shift focus away from the recent leaked tapes. The tension between the two was palpable from the very start, when no handshakes were exchanged when they met at centre stage. When asked to comment on the tapes, Trump aggressively denied having ever kissed or grabbed women without their consent, instead sniping that his crude words paled in comparison to how Bill Clinton treated women. The third and final presidential debate is slated to take place on October 19th. While the market reaction was largely muted, the Mexican Peso, which is viewed as a strong barometer of election sentiment, continues to gain ground versus the dollar after multiple Trump gaffes soured his probability of winning the Presidential race.
