The tech-based Nasdaq stock index closed up 1.23% to lead a run of gains on the stock market Monday. The Dow was up 0.32%, while the S&P closed up 0.7%.
This means that the Nasdaq is almost back to where it was when Joe Biden took office January 20th. The Dow has gained almost 5% since then, while the S&P is up more than 2%.
Today’s gains for Biden, coupled with what was a difficult day 62 for Trump, mean that Biden has seen the Dow do marginally better at the same stage in their presidencies. After 62 days, Biden has seen the Dow gain 0.24% more. Trump retains significant leads on the Nasdaq and S&P, although these have reduced significantly.
Biden’s already-impressive lead over Barack Obama has increased further. After 62 days, Biden’s Nasdaq advantage has increased by almost 5% to 6.08%, while his Dow lead has increased a couple of points to 17.93%. His lead on the S&P is up around 4%.
