Morning Notes

US Futures and European stocks are slightly lower this morning in early trading following the Alabama election results. Democrats gained a seat in the Senate with an upset election and a blow to President Trump. This puts President Trump’s tax plan in risk of not passing when Republicans lose another vote and has investors have on edge. Investors are also awaiting the minutes that will be released from the FOMC meeting this afternoon and FOMC Chair Yellen will deliver her last speech as chairperson. Asian stocks closed the day mixed.
