Gold futures declined 0.34% on the day. It is clear that the precious metals market, specifically gold, has gotten crushed since the election, and there are a[…]
The S&P 500 rebounded from morning losses to finish the session at yet another record closing high. The post election price action has been impressive and continues to strongly favor the bulls for the medium term.

The S&P 500 rallied more than 2% yesterday, reclaiming all of last week’s losses as traders positioned ahead of the US Presidential election. But, the near-term trend remains a bearish one in the broad index.
