U.S. stock futures are pointing to a lower opening on Tuesday when Americans will vote in a new president to lead the country.
On Monday U.S. stock indexes rallied over 2 percent after news emerged on Sunday that the FBI agreed to stand by their original conclusion reached in July about Hillary Clinton not facing criminal charges over her private e-mail server.
Investors have priced in a Clinton victory on election day.
The latest Real Clear Politics national average of major polls taken from 11/1 – 11/7 shows Clinton gaining some new momentum with a 3.2 percent average lead (46.8 percent to 43.6 percent).
Yesterday President Barack Obama joined Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on stage before a huge crowd in Independence Mall located in Philadelphia, PA.
Obama spoke positively about Clinton’s past experience as secretary of state and said “she’s a big reason we’re respected around the world.”
Obama said Clinton knows government service is not about her, “it’s about you, your struggles and your dreams.”
“I know that she’ll work her heart out for you” Obama concluded.
