Futures slipped this morning, settling down some after yesterday’s big rally to begin the month. The S&P 500 logged its best performance since June while the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Nasdaq saw their best days since November.

Investor optimism around vaccine distribution and the stabilization of the 10-year Treasury yield helped spark the massive gains.

Meanwhile, shares of Target and Kohl’s are up 0.5% and almost 2%, respectively, in premarket trading today after each company blew past estimates in their latest earnings reports.

Zoom Video Communications also saw shares soar in the premarket today, increasing 8% after the company yesterday reported earnings that exceeded expectations.

And in Washington, Senate Democrats are hoping to debate their iteration of the virus relief package by tomorrow. And Senator Elizabeth Warren yesterday released a wealth tax bill.

What else should you know before you start your day?

When he unearthed this obscure 18-digit code, he knew he’d hit pay dirt

During the two years that followed the 2008 crisis, America went through the worst recession since the Great Depression.

And throughout that same two-year timeframe when most Americans struggled to regain their footing, trading expert Andrew Keene found a unique way to make millions…

But how?

It was when he began to look closely at a company’s stock price data that he discovered an obscure 18-digit “code.” (clicking will opt you in to Profit Pregame’s free daily e-letter – Privacy Policy)

This “code” let him see when the hedge funds and investment banks were making incredibly lucrative trades.

Trades that wouldn’t make sense to the everyday American simply because the company wasn’t in the news.

And at that moment, he wondered if he could continuously tag along with these mysterious trades – taking a slice of the profits along the way.

So he tested it out…

And it worked better than he could have ever dreamed.

There is no provision to extend the eviction ban in the latest virus relief bill that Democrats are now forcing through Congress. The moratorium will expire this month, and that could force millions of Americans out of their homes.

The measure was left out of the package because it does not meet the criteria necessary for inclusion according to budget reconciliation rules. This process allows the Democrats to muscle their legislation through Congress without the support of their GOP colleagues.

But budget reconciliation also prohibits them from including a federal minimum wage hike and an extension of the eviction ban.

“Because an eviction moratorium itself makes no direct changes to federal spending or revenues, it’s something that wouldn’t be allowed under the reconciliation process,” said Douglas Rice of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

What does this mean for renters, and what else should you know about the ‘relief’ bill that is making its way to President Joe Biden’s desk?
