Short term concerns overshadowed long term optimism to push large cap indices down after two weeks of gains. However small cap names became targets for moving money giving the S-fund more than 3% in gains. Large caps started the week with gains after another successful vaccine trial gave investors a light at the end of the tunnel.

Stocks manage to close at record highs after a turbulent week. The week started with a gap up to new highs after Pfizer reported a Covid-19 vaccine trials that were 90% effective.

Stocks prices did not react in this obvious manner, in fact stocks had their best week since the comeback rally in April. Impressively the S&P 500 was up more than 1% for four straight days (M-Th).

Stock indices had their worst weekly performance since the pandemic driven sell-off in March. Well here we are seven months later and the pandemic's potential effect on the economy continues to control the market. New cases are surging and the market's worst fear of more economic shut downs are beginning to manifest.

If COVID was not enough to induce selling, there is more uncertainty of the outcome of the election next week than ever. Not only does the market carry the weight of a
