Rolling coverage of the latest economic and financial news
Good morning, and welcome to our rolling coverage of the world economy, the financial markets, the eurozone and business.
Investors around the world are gripped by the unfolding election drama in the US.
Biden is called to win Arizona (11), which leaves the key Rust Belt states of Wisconsin (10), Michigan (16) and Pennsylvania to decide the election.
But these won’t be called imminently and it could take days to decide final outcome, not even considering legal challenges prolonging the agony – A result today may not be possible, though if Biden clears 270 it seems difficult for Trump to mount a serious legal challenge.
