 “During October, the S&P 500 decreased by 2.66% due to the uncertainty of US elections and rise in virus infections.  Developed markets outside the US fell 3.56% during October, 21 of 24 countries lost ground as a large portion of Europe announced new lockdown plans. Emerging markets reported positive a return of 2.04% in October.” According to Deborah Fuhr, managing partner, founder and owner of ETFGI.
