Top Stocks To Buy Today As Markets Tank Amid Trump COVID News

Nervous investors are bracing for a rough trading day amid news that President Trump and the first lady tested positive for COVID-19. Furthermore, markets faced additional headwinds based on the latest jobs report and further uncertainty of a stimulus bill. The Dow, while opening down 430 pts, traded off its lows dropping 200 points, or 0.8%. The S&P 500 fell 0.8%, while the Nasdaq NDAQ dropped 1.3%. The final unemployment data before the election also indicated a slowdown in recovery. While the unemployment beat estimates at 7.9% rate, nonfarm payrolls rose by only 661,000 in September compared to the expected 800,000-a significant slowdown in the recovery. With fears of Trump’s COVID diagnosis, along with the unemployment data, sentiment is not good today. For investors looking to make sense of these interesting times, the deep learning algorithms at Q.ai have crunched the data to give you a set of Top Buys.
