The debt ceiling bill kept Wall Street's attention this week, as it successfully passed through Congress, avoiding a potential default. In true Schoolhouse Rock fashion, the bill made its way through the 13-member House Rules Committee on Tuesday, the House of Representatives on Wednesday, and the Senate on Thursday, which in turn generated optimism. 

Nvidia (NVDA) stock's extended surge has been quite the storyline to follow, giving the tech-heavy Nasdaq a boost as it crossed the $1 trillion market cap threshold. All three major indexes secured weekly wins, with jobs data giving the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) a boost to end the week, while Wall Street's "fear gauge," the Cboe Volatility Index (VIX), neared two-year lows. 

Large-Cap Tech in the Spotlight

Fintech name SoFi Technologies (SOFI) surged as the debt ceiling bill progressed, as federal student loan and interest payments are expected to resume. Meanwhile, activist investor buzz sent Twilio (TWLO) higher, and options bulls chimed in.
