All 3 of the main US stock indexes ended Joe Biden’s 100th day of presidency in the green. The Dow was up the most at 0.71%, while the S&P gained 0.68%. Both indexes have gained more in Biden’s first 100 days than has been the case for any president since Franklin D Roosevelt in 1933.
The Nasdaq gained 0.22% today and has been slightly less impressive but still has a strong cumulative growth since Biden took office as president.
The comparison between Biden and Donald Trump has also moved in the incumbent’s favor on all 3 indexes by a few tenths of a percentage point. The Nasdaq performed better over the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency than it has for Biden but the reverse is true for both the Dow and S&P.
Interestingly, Biden’s comparison with Barack Obama has moved in the opposite direction. Obama’s lead on the Nasdaq has increased by more than 2%, while Biden’s leads on the Dow and S&P have each reduced by more than 1% since yesterday.
