IT stocks came under pressure as investors reacted to early results and predictions for the US presidential elections, showing gains for Trump in crucial states. For the $150 billion IT services industry a Trump victory will only add to its woes and challenges the industry is facing on growth due to automation and technology disruption. Trump right from the start of his campaign days has stated that he wants to bring jobs back to the US. This includes both the manufacturing jobs that China has taken away and employment in tech industries that has come to India.
