The Dow closed 227 points higher today, as the broader market swiftly brushed off yesterday's concerns regarding Biden's tax plan, while the S&P 500 Index and Nasdaq finished firmly in the black as well. Bank and tech stocks gave the market a boost, however, today's rally wasn't enough to cover the week's entire deficit, with all three benchmarks notching modest weekly losses.

Meanwhile, investors had plenty of economic data to unpack as well. According to new home sales data for March, new homes were bought at their fastest pace since 2006, at a seasonally-adjusted annual rate of 1.021 million. Furthermore, the IHS Market U.S. composite purchasing managers index rose to 62.2 in April -- a record high.
