Top moments from the third debate

Hillary Clinton held her lead over Donald Trump in the final presidential debate ahead of the election, analysts said of the Wednesday night market reaction.

"This remains Clinton's election to lose. Hillary solidified her lead in the polls by staying on message, emphasizing policy prescriptions, and launching several devastating personal attacks," said Karl Schamotta, director of FX research and strategy at Cambridge Global Payments. "Trump played his last hand, and lost."

U.S. stock index futures held slight gains throughout the debate and added a few points to trade near session highs after the end of the debate, with Dow futures up about 45 points as of 11:13 p.m., ET.
