Trade Strategy 11.6.18

Markets
 
U.S. stock index futures are dipping into negative territory again as Americans cast their vote in a closely-watched midterm election. The results will likely set the tone for the markets, though the question is what kind of tone that will be. Some say a Republican sweep could send Treasury yields higher and weigh on stocks, though others say it could propel equities given Trump’s business-friendly agenda. The same split prediction is being offered if Democrats take control of one of the chambers of Congress.
