It was another unspectacular day on the stock market as the Nasdaq and S&P both gained a bit of ground, but the Dow Jones lost some. The Nasdaq was the day’s biggest mover and ended 0.31% higher. The S&P was a mere 0.02% up on the day, while the Dow dropped 0.09%.
The Nasdaq’s gains under President Joe Biden have now reached 5.5%. The Dow continues to be just short of 12% up since inauguration day in January, with the S&P 500 not too far behind.
Biden has lost a little ground to Donald Trump on all 3 indexes since yesterday. No gap has changed, however, by more than a couple of tenths of a percent. Biden continues to have leads on the Dow and S&P, whereas Trump has a larger lead on the Nasdaq.
Biden has reduced Barack Obama’s Nasdaq lead by around three-quarters of a percent since Monday. It now stands at about 15%. Biden’s leads on the Dow and S&P are little changed. The former is down about a tenth; the latter up by about the same margin.
