Stocks soared today even as last night’s election results remain undecided, which was to be expected.  The Dow closed up 367 points or 1.34%.  The Nasdaq, which had futures halted briefly last night after jumping too quickly, finished up 3.85% and the S&P 500 rose 2.20%.  All focus is on key swing states, primarily Wisconsin, Michigan, Nevada, and Pennsylvania, as updated counts continue to roll in.  Metals initially dipped as stocks surged today, but have since recovered some of their losses with gold and silver trading at $1,904 and $24 respectively.
