7 DAYS UNTIL THE US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

It is officially one week out until the US presidential election as voters mail in their ballots amid a resurgence of Covid-19 cases and concerns of public safety. Early indicators have shown that record-breaking number of Americans – 22 million – have already sent in their votes. The surge appears to be a function both of the circumstances relating to the coronavirus and growing Democratic zeal to vote out President Donald Trump.

Joe Biden continues to lead in the polls ahead of the incumbent with a 7-point average that he’s held for a few weeks. The margins did narrow today but by a meager 0.5 points. Looking ahead, the Republican vote may surge on the election day itself if Republican-inclined voters opt to cast their ballot in person. This sudden spike may create some volatility and punish equity indices and push the haven-linked USD higher.

S&P 500 Analysis

The S&P 500 may retest a key inflection point at 3361.0 if accentuated selling pressure from swelling risk aversion amid the spike in Covid-19 cases drags the index lower. Breaking that floor could open the door to challenging frequently-tested support/resistance – depending on the month – at 3282.3. Encountering that zone could itself signal the start of a deeper pullback.

Having said that, the fluidity and uncertainty of the situation as it pertains to the 2020 US presidential election and coronavirus makes the S&P 500 vulnerable to bouts of volatility.
