Palestinian bourse plummets after election :: Reuters

Apparently, Condeleeza Rice wasn't the only person caught off guard by the Hamas victory.

Quoting the Reuters article:
Worried Arab investors, mainly from the United Arab Emirates, as well as Palestinian shareholders have continued to call Rajab looking for any news that might ease their concerns.

"It's a total crash," Rajab said. "They (investors) don't trust the market, because they don't know whether Hamas will hold talks with Israel."
