US Market View
Dow notched gains Thursday, led by value stocks like energy and financials, on hopes the economy is set to get a fiscal boost after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested an agreement on stimulus was nearing the finish line. The Labor Department said 787,000 people filed for unemployment insurance, down 55,000 from the prior week's downwardly revised 842,000, and well above economists' forecast for 870,000. Some economists, however, questioned whether the trend will continue in the wake of rising Covid-19 cases.
US Key Point
