(minute chart of the three major stock indexes, source: TradingView)
By the close, the S & P 500 was up 1.05% at 3315.57, the NASDAQ was up 1.71% at 10963.64, and the Dow was up 0.52% at 27288.18.
Only energy (- 1.03%) and financial sectors (- 0.84%) fell in the 11 S & P 500 sectors, led by optional consumption (2.96%), communications services (1.87%) and information technology (1.65%).
JJ Kinahan, chief market strategist at TD Ameritrade, said there was absolutely no reason to expect the market to remain stable. The epidemic is a key factor in suppressing all concepts, and investors have yet to see a potential timetable for solving the problem.
Mark Haefele, chief investment officer for global wealth management at UBS, said stocks would eventually rise further in the medium term with the successful development of vaccines, the landing of uncertainty in the US election, the introduction of fiscal stimulus bills and continued easing by global central banks. But the path to economic normalization is bound to be bumpy, so the market is expected to remain volatile throughout the year.
