December 14 - 18, 2020 Recap

Equities Rebound
U.S. stocks slightly trimmed a weekly gain on Friday, halting a solid three-day rally after Congress was unable to reach a stimulus bill agreement by market close. Negotiators later compromised on a new $900B stimulus deal on Sunday, providing much needed relief to businesses and consumers. Equity markets experienced heightened volume and volatility last week amid preparations for a major addition and rebalancing to the S&P 500 as well as the quarterly quadruple options and futures contracts expiration.

Weekly Performance
For the week, the S&P 500 gained 1.29%, the Dow Industrials rose 0.44%, and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite surged 3.07%. Notably, the small cap-focused Russell 2000 Index also surged over 3%.
