With President Donald Trump preparing to slap tariffs on Chinese goods as soon as Friday, much of the talk in financial markets is how the outperformance of American equities relative to the rest of the world is a sign investors expect the U.S. to come out ahead in any trade war. After a spurt of strength starting in mid-April, the rally in the Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index has fizzled. The gauge of the greenback’s strength has dropped to its lowest level in three weeks and is little changed from where it was at the end of May.

MEXICO CITY—Financial markets reacted cautiously Monday to Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s decisive electoral victory as investors ponder what the country’s swing to the left will mean for economic policy. The leftist former mayor of Mexico City won more than 53% of the votes Sunday, and the coalition led by his Morena party secured majorities in both houses of congress as well as several key governorships, according to the national electoral agency. After strengthening overnight to as few as 19.64 pesos to the dollar in what currency traders described as a “euphoria rally,” the Mexican currency gave back some gains and was trading around 20.11 per dollar Monday morning.

Populist candidates in Mexico and Brazil are leading the polls, increasing the possibility that those countries could take more extreme stances on matters such as trade and security.
