Earlier in the day, the index and the Dow both moved higher. Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that the country’s regulatory agencies have approved the world’s first new crown vaccine. Although people doubt that Russia has developed a safe new crown vaccine so quickly, the news has sparked investor optimism.
An executive of Johnson & Johnson in the United States also told the media that if the company’s new crown vaccine candidate proves successful, it is expected to produce 1 billion doses next year.
Jeff Buchbinder, an equity strategist at financial services company LPL Financial, said in a report: “The market is looking forward to a better day in the future. Although it is not yet certain when it will come, the stock market is expressing Confidence: The emergence of one or more vaccines will finally end the epidemic.”
Last weekend, investment bank Goldman Sachs raised its forecast for US economic growth and predicted that the United States will approve at least one vaccine by the end of this year, and the vaccine will be widely vaccinated before the second quarter of next year.
At the same time, the future of the pandemic stimulus plan designed to provide support to Americans during the pandemic is still uncertain, and investors are still uneasy.
US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Monday that the White House is open to resuming negotiations with the Democrats on aid negotiations for the new crown virus and opening more relief funds to reach a compromise. However, US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Mitch McConnell) said on Tuesday that negotiations with Democrats have reached a deadlock.
Last weekend, Trump signed four executive orders to extend some of the aid during the new crown epidemic, including providing additional unemployment benefits, suspending the collection of payroll taxes, postponing the repayment of student loans, and suspending tenants’ evictions.
