Follow along with MarketWatch’s live blog of the final night of the Democratic National Convention, which will feature presidential nominee Joe Biden’s acceptance speech.

The former vice president’s address will follow speeches earlier in the week from former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, former first lady Michelle Obama, and vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris, who spoke Wednesday night.

President Donald Trump is portraying Biden as a far-left extremist who would be negative for stocks and the economy, even as Biden has failed to adopt progressives’ policies like “Medicare for All.”

Speeches will run from 9-11 p.m. Eastern Thursday. The proceedings follow a record close for the Nasdaq

DJIA,
+0.16%

and S&P 500 index
SPX,
+0.31%
