US Presidential Election

Congressional Elections: Why do they matter?

While the race for the White House has received outsized attention, developments such as the failure to reach a new coronavirus relief bill and the looming threat of a government shutdown have heightened the stakes in the battle for control of Congress. The House of Representatives looks firmly in the hands of the Democrats after the inroads they made in the 2018 midterms. Control of the Senate is therefore crucial. It’s currently in Republican hands and the Democrats would need to win four seats of the twenty-three up for grabs in order to gain an overall majority.

Bank shares tumble on FinCEN files, travel stocks sank by lockdown fears

September blues continue: European markets shot lower in early trade on Monday after US stocks fell for a third week in a row – the first such sustained decline in a year.

On Friday the S&P 500 broke down at the 50-day simple moving average and closed at its weakest since early August.

Stocks softer as UK mulls second lockdown

Boris Johnson says a national lockdown would be disastrous, but his scientific advisers are proposing a two-week lock-up in October.
