Shares on the NASDAQ stock index rose by 2.55% on day 13 of Joe Biden’s presidency. The Dow (up 0.76%) and S&P 500 (up 1.61%) also saw impressive gains.
Altogether, that means Biden has moved into positive territory on the NASDAQ but the Dow and S&P remain lower than when he took over as president from Donald Trump on 20th January.
Compared to the start that the stock indexes made under Donald Trump, Biden is doing worse on the three main ones. His biggest deficit is on the Dow at over 3%.
There is slightly better news for Biden if we compare him to Bill Clinton, his predecessor but one as a Democratic president. He edges ahead of the NASDAQ but remains with a significant deficit on the Dow (4.59%) and S&P (2.32%) at this early stage in his presidency.
