Stock Market Today: Renewed Stimulus Hopes Spark Wide Monday Rally
Hopes for economic help from Washington were reignited over the weekend, enabling Wall Street to ignore several potentially bearish catalysts Monday and send stocks to a wide-ranging rally.

Most concerning might have been the news that Inovio Pharmaceuticals' (INO, -28.3%) COVID-19 vaccine candidate was put in a "partial clinical hold."

SEE MORE 20 Best Stocks to Buy for the New Bull Market Uncertainty over what we'll hear in the presidential debates, which begin Tuesday night, also might have been considered an overhang given the importance of the 2020 elections to the nation's economic picture.

"The U.S. election is taking place against a historic backdrop of a pandemic, recession and domestic strife," say BlackRock Investment Institute strategists. "The outcome could have significant implications for key policy areas: fiscal stimulus, public investment, taxation, regulation and foreign affairs. It also has the potential to supercharge structural trends such as an increased policy and market focus on sustainability."

But first and foremost on investors' minds was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's Sunday revelation that the House is working on a smaller $2.4 trillion stimulus package; she was scheduled to talk to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin today.

Twenty-seven of the Dow Jones Industrial Average's 30 components finished in the black today, including big gainers Boeing (BA, 6.4%) and Dow (DOW, 3.1%), leading the industrial average 1.5% higher to 27,584.

Dow books roughly 410-point gain to start the week, boosted by energy, industrials and financials
U.S. stocks closed sharply higher Monday, starting the week on a higher note as investors bought shares of banks, energy companies, as well as materials and industrials firms. Talk of some progress toward a fresh coronavirus aid package, however unlikely to gain much traction on Washington, and bargain hunting by investors betting on happier economic times in the throes of a global viral outbreak, helped to revive some degree of the bullish sentiment. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up 410 points, or 1.5%, at 27,583, the S&P 500 index finished the session up 1.6% at 3,352, powered by a 2.3% gain in financials and a 2.3% in the energy sector . The Nasdaq Composite Index , meanwhile, closed 1.9% higher at 11,117, retaking a psychological perch above 11,000. All closing numbers are on a preliminary basis. Shares of Citigroup and Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo & Co. closed up 2.9% and 3.1%, and 3.5% respectively, helping to lead the charge higher for the economically sensitive banking sector, underscoring some bets for an improved economy by investors and efforts by investors to find value in beaten down sectors that have not enjoyed the run-up in stocks to the same degree as the highflying technology-related and work-from-home shares. Investors are also focused on the looming 2020 presidential election, with a debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden set for Tuesday, which could also influence investment behavior in the short term. Last week, stocks took a hit amid rising concerns of a renewed spread of the novel strain of coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Markets got off to a strong start on Monday partly due to solid economic data out of China, which appeared to overshadow reports of fresh lockdowns and growing cases of COVID-19 in parts of Europe.
