Today's Stock Market News & Events: 11/02/2020

Key events today for traders the day prior to the U.S. presidential election

facebook twitter linkedin


Last week was rough on the markets, and that's putting it lightly. Despite Thursday's bounce following economic data, the market resumed its selloff on Friday to secure all three major benchmarks their worst weekly losses since March, also locking in considerable monthly losses. For the most part, the finger of blame can be pointed at record highs in U.S. coronavirus infections. With no second stimulus to revive sentiment, hesitance surrounding the upcoming election as well as tightened restrictions internationally weighed heavily on the broader market. Big tech's lackluster earnings reports last week didn't help, either. 

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI - 26,501.60) fell 0.6% on Friday, 6.5% last week, and 4.6% last month. The S&P 500 Index (SPX - 3,269.96) dropped 1.2%, for the day on Friday, 5.6% last week, and 2.7% for the month of October. The Nasdaq Composite (IXIC - 10,911.59) lost 2.5% for the day, dropping 5.6% last week and 2.3% for last month. Lastly, the Cboe Volatility Index (VIX - 38.02) added 1.1% for the day on Friday. Last week, the VIX added on a staggering 38% to land a 44.2% monthly win in October.

Today kicks off a week chockfull of opportunities for traders. The November 3 presidential election will undoubtedly capture most people's attention. However, there is still plenty of economic data to sift through and third-quarter earnings season remains in full swing with plenty of big names slated to report. We will start the week off with the ISM Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index (PMI), Markit Manufacturing PMI, and construction spending reports. On the earnings docket, the major names will be Clorox (CLX), CVS, Estee Lauder (EL), Lumber Liquidators (LL), Marathon Petroleum (MPC), and PayPal (PYPL).
