Stocks are rangebound but with some comfortable gains in election-day trading, helped along by the weakened greenback. Gains are broad, but energy's up nearly 1.5%, with oil-related companies in heavy up volume: XOM +1.6%, CVX +1%, SLB +2.3%, BP +2%. Also in big movers: Toreador Resources (TRGL +7.5%) and W&T Offshore (WTI +18.3%). Crude +1.1% to $83.86.
