The U.S. stock market came out of the holiday weekend with just as much upward momentum as it had last week. All three major market benchmarks gained ground, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES: ^DJI), S&P 500 (SNPINDEX: ^GSPC), and Nasdaq Composite picking up 1.5% to more than 2% on the day. Today, however, some news from China caused more bullish sentiment to appear across the globe, and even Wall Street benefited from some of the optimism that market participants felt as a result.
The stock market enjoyed a big bull market on Monday, and the Nasdaq helped lead the way. The Nasdaq Composite (NASDAQINDEX: ^IXIC) index climbed more than 2%, and the Nasdaq 100's gains amounted to 2.5% by the end of the day. The name of the game for Nasdaq investors in 2020 has been momentum, as winning stocks have tended to keep winning.

Wall Street closed higher on Thursday following the release of better-than-expected nonfarm payroll data of June.
Apart from the large-cap specific three major stock indexes, the mid-cap specific S&P 400 also advanced 23.3% in the last quarter.
Jul.03 -- The S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite indexes, with their concentration of technology companies, are set to benefit from a continued economic recovery, even as markets enter a "choppier" third quarter, says Supriya Menon, senior multi asset strategist at Pictet Asset Management. She speaks on "Bloomberg Markets: European Open."
The United States once again broke a record for the number of daily new COVID-19 cases on Thursday, with 55,000 new incidents confirmed.
The market rally, fuelled by Thursday's record U.S. jobs numbers, largely blew itself out after a record daily total of new U.S. COVID-19 cases, though news of the fastest expansion in China's services sector in over a decade kept Asia's tail up early in the day. Chinese shares had charged to their highest level in five years, helping the pan-Asian indexes to four-month peaks, so the sight of European markets stalling left traders floundering, especially with no Wall Street to pick things up again because of a U.S. market holiday. More than three dozen U.S. states are now seeing increases in COVID-19 cases, including Florida, where they have leapt above 10,000 a day.
The Nasdaq exchange has had some of the most exciting companies in the stock market, and they've helped to make the Nasdaq the first major market benchmark to reach new highs. There are plenty of stocks listed on the Nasdaq that have seen impressive gains lately. Shares of Tesla finished the day up around 8%, adding to big gains throughout the week.
(Bloomberg) -- U.S. stocks pared gains on speculation that a second wave of coronavirus cases could jeopardize an economic rebound from the sharpest contraction on record.The S&P 500 came off session highs amid a slump in trading volume ahead of a holiday on news that U.S. virus cases had the biggest increase since May 9. Earlier, Florida reported that infections and hospitalizations jumped the most ever, and Houston had a surge in intensive-care patients. The figures offset data showing payrolls rose by 4.8 million in June after an upwardly revised 2.7 million gain in the prior month.“Going into the long weekend, why have an extreme bullish position?” Ed Clissold, chief U.S. strategist at Ned Davis Research, told Bloomberg TV. “We should think of the market in terms of a trading range environment around 3,000 and 3,200. When it looked earlier today, it became clear the market wasn’t going to break out, the rally lost steam.” The S&P 500 closed at 3,130.01.Read: U.S. Job-Growth Optimism Tempered by Stall in States’ ReopeningsThe U.S. labor market made greater progress than expected last month digging out of a deep hole, yet optimism over the rebound was tempered by stubbornly high layoffs and a resurgent coronavirus outbreak across the country. President Donald Trump still said the report shows the economy is “roaring back.” Massive monetary and fiscal policy stimulus helped lower borrowing costs and keep the financial system liquid in a time of stress -- while propelling the stock market higher.“There’s still a general positive sentiment about how quickly we’re seeing the recovery,” said Chris Gaffney, president of world markets at TIAA Bank. “But we do think you’re going to see the recovery level off, especially if we continue to see higher case numbers on the virus.”Investors also assessed remarks from White House Economic Adviser Larry Kudlow, who told Fox Business Network that “we are very unhappy with China” and “there are going to be export restrictions.”U.S. stocks are poised to rise this quarter if history is any guide, according to Keith Lerner, chief market strategist at SunTrust Private Wealth Management. Lerner cited the S&P 500’s track record after its biggest quarterly gains since 1950 in a report Tuesday. The gains ranged from 15% to 22%, in line with last quarter’s 20% increase, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. In each case, the S&P 500 rose in the following quarter.

Stock rose on Thursday, as investors cheered the resiliency of a U.S. economy that created nearly 5 million jobs last month in the throes of the raging coronavirus pandemic.
The stock market kept moving upward on Thursday morning, continuing to draw optimism from hopes that the economy will be able to overcome a second wave of coronavirus cases. Many market participants pointed to today's report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics about the employment picture in the U.S. for June as evidence that things are getting better. Total nonfarm payroll employment jumped by 4.8 million in June, and that sent the unemployment rate down by 2.2 percentage points, coming in at 11.1%.
The sharp uptick shown by major American indexes at this time of global health crisis is exemplary and must be taken advantage of from an investment viewpoint.

The Nasdaq and the S&P 500 closed higher on Wednesday as investors focused on signs of economic recovery and better than expected economic data.
The Nasdaq opened at an all-time high after data showed the U.S. economy created 4.8 million jobs in June, the most since the government began keeping records in 1939, but later pared gains on reports of another spike in infections across the country. "If you are respectful of the COVID risk, that doesn't require a drastic market sell-off, but it requires you to pause from hitting the buy button like crazy." Optimism about a post-pandemic rebound in business activity, aggressive U.S. stimulus and hopes of a vaccine have fueled a Wall Street rally since April, with the benchmark S&P 500 now just about 7% below its February record high.
