As results began pouring, the U.S. presidential race was simply too close for comfort in the eyes of many in the stock market.

CNBC reported stock futures fell sharply as the expected victory for Hillary Clinton began to look uncertain.

Early returns put Trump in front of Clinton by a tiny margin with 90 percent of precincts reporting in the key battleground state of Florida.

That made investors uneasy and dropped stock futures almost 500 points.

According to Bloomberg, the U.S. dollar also lots ground on the Japanese yen amid early election results.
