Bitcoin & Tesla

After days of Tesla Founder and CEO tweeting about Bitcoin and Dogecoin, it appears the world’s richest person has put his money where his mouth is. The Tesla investment of $1.5 billion of its company cash reserves is expected to create a ‘domino affect’ whereby other corporate executives will feel compelled to diversify some of their spare cash into cryptocurrencies as a store of value. 

S&P 3900

A rally in financial and oil stocks and other ‘reflation trades’ pushed the S&P 500 to close over the key threshold of $3900 for the first time, while the Dow notched up a 6-day win streak. The latest Democrat stimulus proposals include money for airlines and a revamped child-benefit program for families.

Nikkei 225

The largest 225 companies in Japan reached their highest value since 1990 on Monday. Japanese companies have seen an average 15% rise in operating profits in the last quarter, reversing the 15% drop in the prior quarter. Industrial companies have been leading the gains amid the reflation trade. SoftBank shares gained 4% afterhours after reporting its best quarter since 2017.
