US Mid-Term sees divided Congress

US Mid-term elections saw the Republican party retain and increase control of the Senate. The Democrats made enough gains in the House of Representatives to take control of it which now spells a divided Congress. Whilst this outcome was expected and priced in by markets this status quo does spell uncertainty for the US President who will now struggle to get further policy reform through both the Senate and the House which in turn could mean Trumps remaining two years in office will be limited in terms of policy change for the US.
