Investors are very bullish on the market today for several reasons and S&P futures are higher this morning. Although there is HUGE uncertainty in the US elections, it appears the markets are pricing in a TRUMP win. As we get closer to the election, we expect the markets to get choppy. A dip would be likely if Biden gains in polling AND makes a statement about rolling back corporate tax. Till then we are experiencing a strong BULL trend in the market.
3 BULL Stock Market DRIVERS
The three drivers this week are:
Reason 1: Government Cheese: White House Reps have said President Trump would be willing to sign a $1.3 trillion coronavirus-stimulus bill making a deal with the Democrats likely.
Reason 2: Coronavirus Vaccine Fast-Track: The FDA Admin head Stephen Hahn said he’d be willing to fast-track approval of a coronavirus trial is the reward was worth it.
Reason 3: The Daily COVID infections continued to remain below the mid-July peak as the national testing positivity rate fell. This will trigger most states to reopen if they haven’t already.
