Market continues to trend sideways as investor await US debate

The ASX200 remained virtually unchanged for the day, finishing a mere 0.2 points down. While there was a bit of a rise on open, up 0.7% at one stage, the market was promptly sold down from its three-week high. This can be attributed to losses particularly from the mining sector.

Investors now wait anxiously for the outcome between the Biden and Trump showdown were the results from this may ultimately drive the market for weeks to come.
