Stocks are extending their rally midday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) last seen up 195 points, while the Nasdaq Composite (IXIC) also sports a triple-digit gain at last check. The S&P 500 Index (SPX) is also getting a lift, although the 10-year Treasury yield remains volatile today.

The British pound is also seeing a slight rally off its record lows, giving the global market a much-needed boost. Cryptocurrency is following the bounce in equities, with Bitcoin (BTC) last seen up roughly 5%.

Carnival Corp (NYSE:CCL) is seeing a surge in bullish options activity this afternoon, with 29,000 calls exchanged, volume that's double the intraday average.

News that Canada would drop its Covid-19 travel restrictions in October is also giving the broader sector a boost. CCL has shed 53% this year, with its most recent rally attempt rejected by the 100-day moving average.
