The Dow Jones has now gained more than 11% under the presidency of Joe Biden, while the S&P is closing in on the same milestone. The Nasdaq, by contrast, has gained just over 4%.
Biden has gained marginally on both the Dow and S&P in his comparison with Donald Trump after 128 days of their presidencies. He still trails Trump by around 8% on the Nasdaq.
Biden has seen more significant improvements in his position compared to Democrat predecessor Barack Obama. Most notably, Biden’s advantage on the Dow comparison has increased by about 2.5% since yesterday to over 11%. His lead on the S&P has gone up by almost as much. Obama’s lead on the Nasdaq has dropped by a little over 1%.
