  • Adding to gains of 1.3% yesterday, the S&P 500 finished higher by 0.9% today while the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose by 228 points after yesterday's 557 point-surge.

  • After gaining 0.8% on Tuesday, the broad-based Equity REIT ETF finished higher by 1.0% with 15 of 18 property sectors in positive territory while the Mortgage REIT ETF jumped 5.0%.

  • Perhaps signaling a return of the "reopening rally," small-cap and mid-cap stocks led the gains today while hotel, retail, and casino REITs all surged more than 6% on the day.
