The mood on Wall Street was already very good last night, despite the persistent uncertainty about the election results in the US. Tech funds, in particular, were able to count on strong buyer interest because of the expectation that potentially stricter rules for the sector would appear to be forthcoming, given the majority of Republicans in the Senate. Futures in the US pointed to a further advance in prices this afternoon.

US President Donald and his Democratic rival Joe Biden are in a neck-and-neck race in several states where votes are still counted. It may therefore take a while before the winner of the presidential election is known. Biden is currently ahead of Trump, but Trump’s team is demanding a recount of the votes in a number of states.

Investors also looked forward to the US Federal Reserve’s interest rate decision coming out tonight. No major changes in the monetary policy of the US central bank are expected.

Tech funds are leading the way

Slipped into the AEX ING further away with a drop of 6.7%. The banking group announced it would cut about 1,000 jobs at the investment bank and retail units abroad.
