Stocks jumped Friday to end a turbulent week on a high. The Nasdaq was up the most with a 2.32% gain. The S&P and Dow Jones were up 1.49% and 1.06% respectively.
The Nasdaq is now back in positive territory under President Joe Biden following a couple of days in the red earlier in the week. The Dow’s gains, meanwhile, are back above 10%, while the S&P’s are closing in on that mark.
Today’s gains are all good news for Biden on his comparison with predecessor Donald Trump. He has seen Trump’s lead on the Nasdaq reduced by more than 2%, while Biden’s leads on the Dow and S&P have increased by more than 1% apiece.
Biden has also improved his position compared to Barack Obama after 115 days of their respective presidencies, although not by nearly as much as with Trump. All 3 indexes have seen a few tenths of a percent shift in Biden’s favor.
