The biggest news of the day hit before you probably even got out of bed this morning: the Chicago Cubs won the World Series (post-midnight, Eastern Time), and Brexiters were told to hold their horses on leaving the EU. The U.K.'s High Court ruled the country can't move to trigger Article 50, the exit ramp from the European Union, without a vote from the Parliament. At least Americans dismayed at the state of U.S. politics can be comforted by the fact that abroad things are screwed up, too. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Facebook  (FB)  selloff continued Thursday, spurred by concerns over slowed revenue growth heading in 2017 (though maybe investors shouldn't be too quick to panic). Fitbit's  (FIT) plunge didn't help the tech sector's case, either. Earnings reports continued to roll in today as well, coming from Starbucks  (SBUX) , CBS  (CBS) and Cigna  (CI) , among others. 

With the jobs report on deck for Friday morning and the election just five days away, Wall Street -- and, let's face it, most of America -- is on edge. Maybe catching up on some of today's top stories from TheStreet will make everyone feel a little better.
