Yes, the US Presidential Elections have completed and that is the only thing to be discussed about today.
This is the current update – Joe Biden is leading. Joe Biden has won 131 electors so far, while Trump currently has won 92. As you should be knowing, one needs to get 270 electors out of the total 538 to win the Presidential Election.
So far, it looks like the Democrats are winning. But some swing states might go in Trump’s favour and thus, the result can change anytime. It indeed is a very tight battle. And that is a major reason for our markets to be highly volatile. We should get a clear picture by 10-11 am. You can follow this yourself by visiting – https://www.bloomberg.com/asia
