On Stockhead today, who’s going to be the big winners on US election day? Plus, October’s best performers, and who’ll benefit from a rate cut?

But first…

The day ahead

In Australia, key events will be led by the RBA’s monthly policy decision, where the central bank is expected to trim rates further to new all-time lows of 0.10 per cent.

That’s followed by the big show later tonight as the US election gets under way. Initial results are expected to start flowing through to Australia on Wednesday morning.

The following companies are in trading halts and are expected to exit in the next couple of trading days:

Chase Mining (ASX:CML) – strategic investment
Telix Pharmaceuticals (ASX:TLX) – strategic investment
