All 3 stock indexes ended the day in the red, although not by large amounts. The Nasdaq and S&P had spent much of the day in positive territory but lost out late on to end down by 0.09% and 0.18% respectively. The Dow enjoyed a much briefer spell in positive territory and finished down by 0.44%.
The Dow and S&P have each gained over 11% since Joe Biden became president. The Nasdaq has consistently lagged behind and has recorded a little over 5% growth.
It was a mixed day for Biden in his comparison with predecessor Donald Trump. On the plus side, Trump’s lead on the Nasdaq has reduced by about 2% since yesterday. On the other side of the ledger, Biden’s lead on the Dow has dropped by about 1% and he is down around a tenth on the S&P comparison.
Biden has lost ground to Barack Obama on all 3 indexes. Obama’s large lead on the Nasdaq is up by over 1% in the past 24 hours. Biden’s leads on the Dow and S&P have shrunk by around 0.5% each.
