Republican candidate Donald Trump is edging closer to the US presidency after a string of shock swing state victories over Hillary Clinton.
He won Florida, Ohio, Iowa and North Carolina, while Democrat Mrs Clinton took Virginia and Nevada. Pennsylvania is too close to call.
New Hampshire, Michigan and Wisconsin – which were meant to be part of the Clinton firewall – are deadlocked, too.
Markets lurched as Mrs Clinton’s path to victory began to narrow.
The US dollar and Mexican peso plummeted while the Dow futures dropped 800 points.
He is closing in on the 270 out of 538 electoral college votes needed to declare victory.
Mr Trump’s Ohio win was a big boost to him, as no Republican has ever taken the White House without winning the Midwestern bellwether.
Iowa last voted for a Republican in 2004.
The mood is dark at Mrs Clinton’s election night party in New York City.
Supporters were crying and staring stony-faced at the big screens showing election results.
At Trump headquarters across town, his fans were cheering and chanting about the Democratic nominee: “Lock her up!”
Out of the 270 Needed to Win, Clinton has 215 and Trump has 264.
