Breaking down major market-moving events for traders

So far today, the results of the U.S. election yesterday point to a presidential race that remains too close to call. There are still a number of consequential battleground states unlikely to produce results for the next couple of days. While the pre-market trading has remained surprisingly calm, most anticipate heightened volatility along with the election uncertainty.

Yesterday, major indexes were all higher amid optimism that a clear winner would emerge from the presidential election, thus avoiding delayed, or contested, result. This ended up not being the case as we know it today. Additionally, investors were also keeping an eye on the key Senate election that could result in major policy shifts. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI - 27,480.03) rose 2.1%, on Tuesday. The S&P 500 Index (SPX - 3,369.25) added 1.8%, for the day yesterday. The Nasdaq Composite (IXIC - 11,160.57) gained 1.7% yesterday. The Cboe Volatility Index (VIX - 35.55) lost 4.3% on Tuesday.

Stick with us throughout the day for ongoing coverage on the the election's impact on the broad market as well as on individual stocks. Today, the Automatic Data Processing (ADP) Employment report and Markit Services PMI are on tap, with earnings from quite a few hot companies slated for release before and after the market close today.
