Markets Call a Draw on 2nd Presidential Debate

No clear winner emerged from the second U.S. presidential debate Sunday night, based on several analysts’ interpretation of market reaction — or lack thereof.

“I think the market declared it a draw and has no more clue after debate then before, at least not in watching the S&P futures,” said JJ Kinahan, chief strategist at TD Ameritrade.

U.S. stock index futures held slightly higher near earlier levels throughout the entire debate. S&P 500 futures were about 5 points higher and Dow Jones industrial average futures were about 31 points higher, as of 11:08 p.m. ET.
