November 2 - 6, 2020 Recap

America Votes for Gridlock
U.S. stocks rebounded sharply last week, following their worst back-to-back losses since March. In a major turnaround, the S&P 500 posted its largest weekly advance since April amid stronger-than-expected October job gains and a full 1% drop on the unemployment rate. Moreover, investors were relieved by election results showing an increased likelihood of a split Congress, implying a continuation of low taxes and other business-supporting polices.

Weekly Performance
For the week, the S&P 500 surged 7.36% and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite ripped higher by 9.05%. The Dow Industrials advanced 6.87%, recovering all but 12 of the 1,834 points it lost over the past two weeks. The S&P 500 ended Friday less than 2% away from its September record high.
