So here we are.
After a volatility filled second half of October, the markets finished the month just shy of 10% off their recent highs, putting us close to correction territory as we move into November. Big tech earnings on Thursday failed to rally the markets with the presidential election looming tomorrow, as the markets wait to see what the makeup of the federal government will be for at least the next two years. With it being unlikely that both the presidential and all the senate races are called before market open on Wednesday, it may be yet another week filled with intraday reversals and lack of bullish conviction. Until the races are decided, it makes little sense to speculate on how the markets will view the victors. If the presidential race is in dispute for the coming days or weeks, expect choppy waters until the winner is declared and accepted.
