Stock Market Today: Investors Buy Stimulus Hopes, But Not With Both Hands
If Thursday's modest gains are any indication, investors are growing more optimistic about the chances of some sort of COVID stimulus package before the end of the year, but they're not counting their chickens, either.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday that there was "movement in the right direction" and that a bipartisan rescue package is "within reach"; that said, Democrats and Republicans are still at odds about several key aspects.

But Pfizer (PFE, -1.7%) announced in the late afternoon that it expected to ship half as many COVID-19 vaccine doses in 2021 as originally planned. While that's still more than a billion doses, the news cut into the market's gains.

The Nasdaq Composite, up 0.2% to 12,377, still finished with enough juice to hit a new record high. The Dow Jones Industrial Average's attempt to reclaim 30,000 was rebuffed, however, though it still advanced by 0.3% to 29,969. The Dow was yet again led by Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA, 7.5%) and Boeing (BA, 6.0%), the latter rising on a Ryanair purchase of 75 Boeing 737 Max aircraft.

Gold futures settle higher for a third straight session
Gold futures on Thursday marked their third straight session gain, finding support on renewed talk surrounding another U.S. coronavirus relief deal. "The key to Congress reaching a deal on a stimulus package could come from [Friday's] nonfarm payroll report," said Edward Moya, senior market analyst at Oanda. "The last nonfarm payroll report of the year could show the labor market is in worse shape and that long-term unemployment is out of control." February gold rose $10.90, or 0.6%, to settle at $1,841.10 an ounce.
