Thursday, 21. January 2021 22:00

Shares on Wall Street ended the session on Thursday flat to higher as tech stocks pushed higher. Equities closed at record highs in the previous session after Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States.

Traders kept watch over developments surrounding President Biden's $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said earlier in the day lawmakers would be ready to consider his plan in the first week of February.

The Dow Jones and the S&P 500 closed flat. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq 100 ended the session 0.82% higher. Intel, Apple and Facebook were all among the top performers in the index.
