Market Matters:

Stocks Futures Higher On The S&P 500
by Geoff Garbacz

November 5, 2020
 

Election results continue to roll in and it looks like the House stays with the Democrats and the Republicans control the Senate while the presidency is likely to go to Democratic Candidate Former Vice President Joe Biden. Markets get ready for a Federal Reserve  announcement at 2:00 p.m. EST and 2:30 p.m. EST press conference.

Market Tone:  Lots of back and forth the last couple of weeks after the initial bounce off the September lows. Expect volatility to continue post election. Stocks have put together a strong three day rally. That up action continues this morning. Impressive.
