Wall Street maintains its streak as all three major indices closed higher. The US30 led the pack as it gained 1.57%, while the NAS100 rose 1.56% and the SPX500 increased by 1.35%.

Overall, the gains in the broad market were led by the financial stocks, which benefitted from a slowing infection rate. The Financial Times reported that the U.S. has less than 1 million new cases over the last week, which is the first time it has achieved that since November.

A risk-on sentiment is clearly building up in the market, as both Amazon and Google’s parent company, Alphabet Incorporated beat expectations in their latest earnings report. To date, 97% of technology companies have surpassed expectations, as reported by the Institutional Brokers Estimate System (IBES) from Refinitiv.

Furthermore, the shares of GameStop dipped 60%, leaving many to wonder if the battle of Wall Street versus Main Street is nearing an end. The CBOE Volatility Index also showed a decrease to further highlight this sentiment. Other than these, traders will likely to be taking cues after the two-day U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) meeting wraps up today.

More importantly, as the U.S. Senate took steps to fast-track President Biden’s stimulus package without Republican votes, the limelight shines again on the $1.9 trillion stimulus package and as it does, building a sense of optimism in the market.

Overall, Wall Street seems determined to regain its upward streak, so let’s watch how this story unfolds over the remaining days of the week.
