1) The Federal Reserve announced massive new measures aimed at boosting the economy but U.S. Equity markets failed to rally yet again. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 582.05 or 3.04%, the S&P 500 fell 67.52 or 2.93% while the NASDAQ 100 closed lower by 18.84 or 0.27% and the Russell 2000 finish lower by 11.49 or 1.13%.
2) Crude Oil Futures bounced Monday to close higher by $1.04 or 4.60% while Gold Futures spiked $77.80 or 5.24% despite more strength in the U.S. dollar. The Bond market closed sharply higher and the yield on the 10-Year Treasury Note settled at 0.746%.
3) Democrats and Republicans continue to work on a massive stimulus funding bill that has so far failed twice to get enough votes in a senate procedural headcount. Both parties say they are very close to reaching an agreement and are optimistic that a deal can be reached tonight. This may spur a rally for the equity markets.
