The stock market roared into the new week with a series of gains led by some of the tech stocks. The Nasdaq gained an impressive 1.41% during trading, while the S&P was up 0.99%. The Dow ended 0.54% higher.
The S&P has now joined the Dow Jones in having gained more than 10% under President Joe Biden. The Nasdaq’s gains have also increased significantly, but it is still some way behind on around 3.5% growth.
There has been remarkably little change in Biden’s comparison with Donald Trump despite today’s gains. Biden’s lead on the Dow has actually dropped a little, while the Nasdaq and S&P gaps are virtually unchanged from Friday.
There has been a more significant change for Biden in his comparison with Barack Obama. Obama’s lead on the Nasdaq is down more than 1.5% to a little over 7%. Biden’s leads on the Dow and S&P are both up – the latter by over 1%.
