Welcome to this first Friday in February. Today we bring you a number of updates on stories and data we have been following these past few months, and a little treat for the soul to finish.
Happy Friday, although the days do blend together lately! The stock market is essentially flat for this first month of the year, but there’s plenty of interesting drama behind the scenes. This week stocks experienced their worst day in three months due to......GameStop?!
2020 ended with a stimulus bill in place to provide $600 checks and longer unemployment insurance ($300/week), among other features.
In today’s email we summarize what was agreed to in the coronavirus relief bill, what’s going on with the stock market, some info about the new strain of coronavirus in the UK, and we end with a sweet treat for the eyes.
