Finance News this Week 4-5-2021

Thank you for sharing!

It was a short week for the markets, with the stock market closed for Good Friday and the bond market closing early Friday at noon… but that didn’t stop there from being plenty of activity and finance news this week. The biggest news? President Biden unveiled the first part of his Build Back Better campaign promise – the American Jobs Plan, a $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan to be funded with debt and raising corporate taxes. Read on to learn how this impacted both the stock and bond market last week. Also, last week we got the Employment Report for March for the latest insights on the labor market recovery. For more finance news, you can find all the previous Monday Market Update’s here. You can now also get the weekly headline highlights on Finance Explained, my new podcast.
