While Covid cases continue to rise and countries around the world extend or impose stricter lockdowns, investors still turned risk-on yesterday. The S&P and Nasdaq were up 0.7% and 1.2%, respectively. As you would expect, treasuries were sold, pushing the 10-year yield back to 0.95%. The dollar keeps losing value as the index falls to multi-year lows. Conversely, gold continues to rise, currently closing at $1,950.

Gold took a breather and pulled back, currently at $1,920.

Sure, the S&P and the Nasdaq are up, treasuries are up and the dollar is down but all of them by marginal amounts. Maybe gold is the good surprise, back above $1,900 after a number of ‘up’ days.
