Good Morning

It was another wild day for the market on Wednesday. The major indices began the day with gains after some early reports on Q3 earnings came in better than expected. Comments from Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin put a damper on sentiment. The Secretary says a stimulus deal of any form is unlikely to happen before the election. This puts the possibility of stimulus in a new light as it means waiting another month for a stimulus that may never come.

In other news, earnings from the big banks have been mostly positive if a bit mixed. Wednesday’s news includes a report from Wells Fargo that shows the company is on solid-footing if not positioned to rebound in 2021. By the end of the week of all of the U.S. largest financial institutions will have reported giving a fairly broad look at the state of the economy. Later this week reports from Alcoa, Morgan Stanley, and J.B. Hunt Transportation Services may move the market.
