Monday, April 12, 2021 – U.S. equity markets
continued their strong performances last week including another, all-time closing

Non-Farm Payroll report, drove the positive equity markets’ activity,

The confluence of recent themes such as the accelerating
distribution of Covid vaccinations, the potential positive impact of the Biden

yield on the closely watched 10 Year U.S. Treasury Note remained in a tight
trading range that landed on 1.66% at the end of the week, slightly down from
recent weeks’ yield.

For the week, the DJIA gained 647.39 to 33,800.60, the
S&P 500 reached an all-time high gaining 108.93 points to close the week at
4,128.80 and the Nasdaq picked up 420.08 points to close the week at 13,900.19.
