Stock-market ETFs little-changed after Joe Biden picks Kamala Harris as running mate
Moves in stock-index exchange traded funds were muted after presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joseph Biden Tuesday evening announced that he had selected Kamala Harris as his running mate in the 2020 election. The pick is significant because 77-year old Biden would be the oldest president elected since Donald Trump took office in 2017. Harris is 55. Markets view presidential picks through the lens of the impact on the economy and the candidates overall financial market. The SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust was trading 0.1% higher in after-hours trade Tuesday, the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF Trust was trading up less than 0.1% in after-hours action, while the Invesco QQQ Trust Series I, also known as the Qs, were trading 0.3% higher after the closing bell. In the regular session, the S&P 500 index finished off 0.8% at 3,333, led by declines in utilities , off 2.1%, real estate, down 1.9%, and information technology closing 1.8% lower. Tech and tech-related shares, part of the market's leadership in the recovery from coronavirus-induced lows put in on March 23, have been taken a breather over the past several sessions as investors presumably rotate into other sectors that of the market that have been under-loved. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down 0.4% at around 27,687, while the technology-laden Nasdaq Composite index finished down 1.7% at about 10,783. Biden currently leads incumbent President Donald Trump by 7.2 percentage points in an average of national polls,according to RealClear Politics.

Financial ETFs surge as investors bet on left-behind sectors
Financial sector ETFs outperformed Tuesday as investors rotated away from pricier technology stocks in favor of sectors that haven't participated in the months-long rally from the March lows. The Fidelity MSCI Financials Index exchange-traded fund and the Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund were both up just over 2% at midday, topping the 0.4% gain for the S&P 500 . So far in August, both funds have notched their best monthly gain since April, following declines of more than 20% in the March market sell-off. Financial ETFs were boosted Tuesday by gains in shares of J.P.Morgan Chase Inc. and Regions Financial Corporation , both among the day's biggest gainers, up nearly 5%, and by a jump in the yield of the 10-year U.S. Treasury note .

Gold prices end higher Monday as China-U.S. conflict and superlow rates buoy bullion
Gold futures settled higher Monday, resuming a strong uptrend for the precious metal after snapping a five-session win streak on Friday, as China imposed fresh sanctions against U.S. officials in apparent retaliation for similar measures against Hong Kong and mainland officials last week. Wavering in the dollar, which attempted to perk up on Monday, and lackluster moves in government bond yields, failed to provide any headwind to further gains in gold's price. Negative real yields in most of the developed world, factoring inflation, and record low interest rates have investors have fostered appetite for silver and gold amid the global health crisis. Gold for December delivery added $11.70, or 0.6%, at $2,039.70 an ounce. Gold got off to a strong start as tensions appeared elevated between the U.S. and China. Beijing on Monday said it would impose sanctions on 11 U.S. citizens, including Republican Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.
