Stocks are mixed Monday afternoon heading into what is shaping up to be a very volatile week for markets; currently, the Dow is up about 1% and the Nasdaq is down 0.4%.  The results of tomorrow’s election will likely remain in limbo for days, if not weeks, which only adds to existing uncertainty among investors as COVID cases continue to climb globally and several European countries are reinstating shutdowns to curb the rise.  Gold and silver are up about 0.8% and 1.7% respectively, but tomorrow’s election, Thursday’s Fed announcement, and Friday’s employment data are only a few components of a busy economic week which could cause massive price fluctuations across markets.
