The US Presidential Election is all set to happen today/tomorrow. We will get an idea of the verdict by tomorrow afternoon. That is. We can expect high volatility in the market today and tomorrow.

The US markets have been falling continuously for the last 2 weeks. So, after the election, if there is a clear winner, a further fall is not expected. An uncertainty in the result is only when markets may crash.
