12/24/2020 Wall Street will have an abbreviated Christmas Eve session, with the Exchanges closing at 1PM (EST) this afternoon. Ahead of this, the futures are pointing to a modestly higher start despite the President’s challenge to the much-anticipated fiscal stimulus deal. Meanwhile, the hoped-for yearend rally seems to still be in focus as the positive trends in place over the past six weeks, or so, shouldcontinue into the new year, as momentum is strong and it is risky to fight the tape.

12/23/2020 The stock market, which had a topsy-turvy session to start the holiday shortened week on Monday, as relief that Congress had finally passed a fiscal stimulus package was offset by worries about a mutated strain of the COVID-19 virus appearing in the United Kingdom, eventually closed that day's trading on a mixed note.

Stock Market Today: December 14, 2020

12/14/2020 The U.S equity market took a breather last week after a phenomenal bull run in November, which saw the major indexes deliver record 30-day showings.

Stock Market Today: December 7, 2020

12/07/2020 the first full trading week of December is set to begin with all three of the major U.S. equity indexes at record levels. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, the NASDAQ Composite, and the broader S&P 500 Index added 249, 87, and 32 points, respectively, on Friday, with investors brushing off an uninspiring report on jobs creation. The market, like it was for much of November, was emboldened by hopes that a coronavirus vaccine is close to moving to the distribution phase, with Pfizer (PFE) saying that its vaccine with Europe-based BioTech will be available for partial distribution by month’s end.
