Stocks gained momentum today after yesterday's sell-off, which was sparked by Covid-19 fears, with reopening plays rising alongside the energy and bank sectors. The Dow closed 550 points higher today, rebounding from its worst day since October of 2020, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq bounced back as well. The 10-year Treasury yield, meanwhile, climbed from its five-month lows. Bitcoin, on the other hand, has been excluded from today's broad-market gains, holding below the $30,000 level, which it breached late Monday night.
