11/7/16 Daily Closing Analysis – NASDAQ Fintech Index (KFTX)


Hillary spikes fintech. That is NOT a political comment. Substitute Trump for Hillary and/or ‘dump’ for ‘spikes’ and it’s a whole new picture. Just saying, fintech (all markets) jumped sharply on weekend election perceptions and with that the NASDAQ KFTX index rallied 22.52 points to close at 1016.07 up +2.27%. Nice jump, fintech.

So, there just has to be lots of excitement and activity in those 49 index issues, right? Let’s take a look and find those stocks that moved 2 points or more today, and the 3% movers too.

Either candidate better have a good offense’ cause it’s a tough economic environment out there. Rest of the week? Whew, seems like the whole election week was today. Rest up and sleep tight this evening.
