Stocks soared on Tuesday as millions of Americans headed to the polls to vote. This followed a grim on report Monday by the Institute for Supply Management that revealed the worst monthly contraction in manufacturing activity. In addition, automakers reported the lowest level of U.S. car sales in more than 17 years.

Besides the election, the big news on Tuesday was the Commerce Department report, which indicated that factory orders fell 2.5% in September from August levels, much worse than the 0.7% drop that analysts had predicted.
