The 2020 election is dominating headlines, and it’s also playing a role on Wall Street.
Local financial advisor Howie Pentony explains what we’ll see over the next few days leading up to the election.
“I think the volatility could be fairly severe up and down. And that wouldn’t surprise me,” Pentony said. “That’s what stock markets do. When there is uncertainty, stock markets don’t like that.”
The markets suffered one of their worst days this year on Wednesday, as the Dow lost more than 900 points. Pentony says that could be a combination of uncertainty surrounding the election, and the increase in coronavirus cases.
