Overnight U.S. stocks slipped but held onto spectacular gains. The Dow lost 0.9% however posted its best November since 1987 on promising vaccine development… boosting confidence of an economic recovery. The S&P500 fell 0.5% but rose 11% in November, and the Nasdaq closed flat overnight but gained 12% last month.
