Trump’s victory four years ago didn’t prompt an extreme market reaction, despite the surprising nature of his win over Hillary Clinton. Back then, the S&P 500 climbed 1.1 percent on post-election day and continued its general upward trend the days that followed.

The S&P 500 fell more than 5% in premarket trading, triggering a circuit breaker to halt trading. By the time the market closed the day after the election, the index was up over 1%.
