The dollar and share prices tumbled on Monday, as investors worried that U.S. President Donald Trump's defeat over healthcare reform foreshadowed difficulties delivering other key campaign promises, in particular fiscal stimulus. Trump's failure to rally enough support from his own Republican party - which controls both houses of U.S. Congress - to repeal and replace Obamacare spurred a rush to safe haven assets such as gold, the Japanese yen and the Swiss franc. Bets that pro-business policies promised by Trump would boost growth and consumer price rises after years of very low inflation, leading to a faster pace of U.S. interest rate rises, took stocks to record highs earlier this year and the dollar to its highest levels in 14 years.
