Stock market news March 24, 2020

US stock market rallies, S&P 500 has the biggest gain in almost 12 years

“U.S. stocks had the best day in almost a dozen years as investors rediscovered their appetite for risk with Congress closing in on an unprecedented spending bill to prop up the slumping economy. The dollar halted a 10-day winning streak.

The S&P 500 rebounded from the lowest level since 2016, notching a third straight Tuesday turnaround — and the biggest one-day gain since October 2008 — after starting the week with a rout. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose more than 11% to clock its biggest advance since 1933.”

Source: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-03-23/asian-stocks-look-to-steady-dollar-gains-markets-wrap

The expectation for a $2 trillion stimulus bill to help and support the U.S. economy is the main cause of this stock market rally.
