The Dow rose 263 points today, still benefiting from yesterday's vaccine news. Elsewhere, the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite both fell, as the latter reeled from the decline of the aforementioned tech names.

Oil, Gold Lock in Wins Amid Vaccine, Stimulus Hopes

New lockdowns in response to rising coronavirus cases weren't enough to drag down oil prices today, as black gold notched a win on hopes that vaccine distribution is on the horizon. Additionally, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies (OPEC+) announced a possible tweak to their supply cut pact, should demand slump before the vaccine is available. As a result, December-dated crude rose $1.07, or 2.7%, to $41.36 a barrel.

Gold also locked in a win, after yesterday's slide, as investors look toward the likelihood of more monetary stimulus. December gold tacked on $22, or 1.2%, to settle at $1,876.40 an ounce for the day.
