US TSYS SUMMARY

Trading moderately higher after the bell, see-sawing near top end second half highs, disappointing volumes after a decent start: TYZ currently >875k after starting session at 350k. Ignoring several Fed speakers and weekly claims (840K), stimulus related headlines drove market moves most of day. Second presidential debate tug of war over virtual venue a mere sideshow for now.

  • Stand-alone stimulus talks drove session moves. Bit of a risk-on move ahead NY open after Trump headlines: stimulus talks "starting to be productive" after he cancelled more systemic relief negotiations late Tue, while larger relief for airlines being discussed as well. Later appearances by House Speaker Pelosi and Sen Majority leader McConnell spurred bouts of risk-off and -on respectively.
