Major indices soaring and up over 2%

The US stock markets are continuing their run to the upside, with each up over 2%.

A snapshot of the markets currently shows the 

  • NASDAQ index up 2.03%
  • S&P index up 2.10%, and the 
  • Dow industrial average up 2.29%

The moves to the upside as the dollar moving lower, as flows move into the riskier currencies. The dollar is reaching new lows verse the EUR, GBP, CHF, CAD, AUD and NZD over the last hour.  

You can argue that if Biden wins, there will likely be a big stimulus deal. If Trump wins, he also has promised more stimulus and he of course is the master of pushing stocks higher.  For now the market is looking at the election as a win-win and shorts are also covering.
