Preview

Good morning all. There is only one place to start…

-Based on Fox’s decision desk Biden is leading the US election race. However, it is finely poised with Trump performing better than most polls predicted. Trump has just spoken to say that he is up in many of the states where the result is yet to come in. Trump has claimed that “they are trying to steal the election,” and said they will be going to the US supreme court

-That’s enough of that for now. Overnight APAC equity markets traded overall higher

-The US dollar has gained strength overnight and into this morning

-On the economic calendar today we have EZ, US and UK Markit services data, US and Canadian balance of trade data, and US ISM non-manufacturing data

-The earnings calendar sees companies such as Wendy’s, Qualcomm, ScottsMiracle-Gro, Zynga, Hilton, Upwork, Marathon oil, Paycom, and Acadia Pharma reporting.
