US stocks lost ground on Thursday, with the Nasdaq the biggest loser. It lost 1.03% of its value, while the S&P dropped 0.36%. The Dow was in the green for part of the day but ended a negligible 0.07% lower.
The Nasdaq has gained only a little over 3% in the 135 days of Joe Biden’s presidency. The Dow and S&P have done rather better, with the former not far short of 12% growth.
Biden has lost further ground in his comparison with Donald Trump. Trump’s lead on the Nasdaq is now into double figures, while Biden’s leads on the other 2 indexes are down once again, albeit not by particularly large amounts.
It is a more mixed picture for Biden in his comparison with Barack Obama. Obama’s lead on the Nasdaq has further increased by around a third of a percent since yesterday. However, Biden has retaken the lead on the S&P and increased his lead on the Dow Jones to over 7%.
