 Claim of the Day

Here's the claim of the day: Wall Street Opens Higher as Faith in Stimulus Persists; Dow up 130 Pts


No one really has any  idea on most days why the market does this or that.

It's entirely possible the market the market lately has been pricing in a Biden victory and is happy about it.

After all, some 3,500 corporations will be happy to get rid of Trump tariffs that have totally backfired.

Is that the reason? 

I don't know, but it is as least as good a reason as reasons provided in headlines every day.

The market can go up or down for many reasons or no reason at all. 

But looking ahead, a Biden victory coupled with increased deficits rates to be good for gold.
