At Zero Hedge by Tyler Durden --
It's almost over: the most divisive, theatrical, dramatic
and dirty presidential campaign will be in the history books by this
time tomorrow, with more than 130 million Americans expected to cast
ballots across 50 states. However, just winning the popular vote will be
insufficient: indeed, it may well be that the popular-vote winner does not win the electoral college.
So which states should one be looking at, and how long is the final day's drama set to continue?
For the benefit of the traders out there, last week we showed a primer from Citigroup explaining when traders can hope to go home on election evening, according to which it was "all about Florida, North Carolina and Ohio."
As Citi said, for traders hoping to capitalize on volatility
next Tuesday as the election results come trickling in, it may all be
over by early evening, at least if Trump loses. That is the calculation
of Citi's Steven Englander, who determined that if Trump loses either
Florida or North Carolina or Ohio "the math doesn’t work and it tells us
that the shift to Trump was not as pronounced as feared."
