Investors are very bullish on the market today for several reasons and S&P futures are higher this morning. The markets seem to be pricing in TRUMP’s victory despite the huge uncertainty surrounding the US election. We expect markets to become more volatile as we approach the election. Biden’s rise in the polls AND his statement regarding rolling back corporate tax would likely cause a dip. The market is currently experiencing a strong BEAR trend.
Bull Stock Market Drivers
This week, the three drivers are:
Reason 1: Government Cheddar: 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. If they haven’t done so already, this will cause most states to reopen.
