On the 31st, the last day of the year, the New York Stock Exchange announced the start of the year at a flat level.
As of 9:45 am EST on the 31st (US time), the Dow Jones Industrial Average at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) was recorded at 36,363.97, down 34.11 points (0.09%) from the previous field.
The Standard & Poor’s (S&P) 500 index rose 0.29 points (0.01%) to 4,779.02, and the Nasdaq Index rose 1.56 points (0.01%) to 15,743.13, up from the battlefield.
Such a passive move seems to be the effect of the steep COVID-19 confirmation rate in the United States.
According to the New York Times (NYT), the average number of new cases per day for 7 days as of the 30th was 345,543. It is up 181% from two weeks ago.
