Wall Street finally saw the green zone after a three-day streak of decline. The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 1.6% on Dec 21. The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite indices climbed 1.8% and 2.4%, respectively. The small-cap benchmark Russell 2000 index also rose 2.9%, witnessing its best trading day since Jul 20. Nine of the 11 S&P 500 sectors were in the green zone.

Reopening plays in sectors like airlines, cruise lines and entertainment saw increased investor attention. Airlines stocks like Delta Air Lines rose 5.9%, United Airlines was up about 6.9% and Carnival increased nearly 8.7%. Las Vegas Sands also climbed 8.4%.

The rebounding 10-year Treasury yield also highlighted improving market sentiment that came at around 1.5% after falling to 1.36% in the previous week. Oil price recouped some decline as it rose above $70 a barrel, with major energy players seeing gains.

Investors gained optimism from some of President Joe Biden’s encouraging announcements. Biden has mentioned that booster shots are providing strong protection against COVID-19 (per a CNBC article). He has also mentioned that the United States will not slip into the intense pandemic conditions faced during March 2020.

Updating about his preparations for the healthcare infrastructure and arrangements, Biden mentioned that the White House is buying 500 million at-home COVID-19 tests that will be available at free of cost for Americans from 2022 (as stated in a CNBC article). Biden has also mentioned that 1000 medical personnel will be allocated from the military to assist hospitals if the situation gets severe in January and February.
