Markets continue to defy reality, contradicting the calamity happening around the world, as traditional equities continue to surge as bulls take control. The action seems to be driven more by news headlines than fundamentals. Whilst not trying to sound like a broken record the themes persist: the US election is approaching quickly; coronavirus vaccine progress is encouraging but the potential reversal of reopening measures is less so; additional stimulus packages are on the horizon; Robinhood traders “buying the dip” is the power of the crowd…. And the beats go on. Nevertheless, traditional equities have been much more volatile than the digital asset markets.
NASDAQ up 2.2% to 10,433
DOW up 1.8% to 26,287
S&P up 1.6% to 3,179
