Daily Morning Note – 25 November 2020

PHILLIP SUMMARY

A global equity rally looked set to extend into Asia on Wednesday after U.S. stocks climbed to fresh records. Treasuries retreated with the dollar. The S&P 500 Index closed at an all-time high and the Dow Jones Industrial Average topped 30,000 for the first time as cash flowed into cyclical sectors. U.S. futures were little changed in Asia trading. Helping sentiment overnight was the formal start of President-elect Joe Biden’s transition, a clearer sense of what his Treasury Department will have in policy preferences after he nominated Janet Yellen to the post and a third promising vaccine candidate. The Treasury yield curve steepened. Gold dropped toward $1,800 an ounce and oil held its surge.
