Trump called Bolsonaro to congratulate him on his victory. In the longest arc of history, the rise and fall of Brazil's leftist politics may have brought succour to the most vulnerable demographic but it left the middle class feeling neglected. Investors said further gains will hinge on clearer signs he can deliver on a market-friendly agenda.
But to many, Bolsonaro's most concerning trait is a lack of concern about Brazil's nascent political checks and balances, implemented in the late 1980's as the country tried to shake off two decades of military rule.
The president-elect's future chief of staff told Reuters his first global trip would be to Chile, another South American nation that swung to the political right in recent elections, and soon after that he hoped to visit the United States.
Bolsonaro - whose previously minor Social Liberal Party will be the second-largest force in the lower house - meanwhile faces the hard job of piecing together a coalition from among some 30 parties.

His once-mighty Workers' Party said Tuesday the election was tainted by Moro's probe, and vowed "resistance" to Bolsonaro's government.
The PT still has a solid base of about 30% of the electorate - but will need more than that to mount a forceful opposition to Bolsonaro. The Sao Paulo stock market closed up 3.69% on the news.
Bolsonaro's rhetoric has proved beneficial to certain sectors. He said he was committed to fiscal discipline and called for the early elimination of the federal government´s budget deficit.
