The Dow scored a nearly triple-digit win to kick off the week, despite earlier being down as much as 160 points at its session lows. The blue-chip index managed to secure a third-straight win and shake off big losses from bank names, which suffered in the wake of Hwang's Archegos Capital Management's forced liquidation. The S&P 500 closed relatively flat, while the Nasdaq once again finished in the red as bond yields moved higher. Looking ahead, U.S. President Joe Biden is expected to unveil his infrastructure plan on Wednesday, a plan that could cost close to $3 trillion.

Oil Rises Despite Suez Canal Reopening

Oil prices began the week higher. Despite the nearly week-long blockage in the Suez Canal clearing up, fears of continued delays helped black gold bump higher. Elsewhere, investors are looking toward the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and their allies' (OPEC+) latest decision on future production curbs. In response, May-dated crude added 55 cents, or 1%, to settle at $61.52 per barrel.

Gold prices fell on Monday as well, slipping to a two-week low thanks to a strengthening dollar and rising bond yields. The yellow metal was also dented by bets for a quick economic recovery in the U.S. April-dated gold shed $20.10, or 1.2%, to settle at $1,712.20 an ounce.
