US $900 billion Covid-19 relief money was signed off by President Trump on Sunday.

Key points of the bill:

  • $600 check per adult and child.
  • $300 additional benefits to people who lost their jobs.
  • Paycheck Protection Program for small businesses.
  • Funding for the distribution of Covid-19 vaccine.
  • $13 billion in food assistance.

Market fluctuations over the last several weeks have been attributed to traders waiting for the stimulus bill.  Now that it’s here and increase distribution for the vaccine should bode well for the market in the long term.
