Mondays market movers

U.S. indexes ended with gains Monday after starting the day on a down note. Investors were cautious of uncertainties surrounding a resurgence of coronavirus cases in the U.S. and globally. The Food and Drug Administration withdrew its emergency authorization of mosquito, malaria drugs, chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine. The Nasdaq Biotech Index led sector gains for the day, up nearly 2%, as drug companies work on vaccines and other support. Biotech gains were led by:

  • MannKind (NASDAQ:MNKD) +16.9%
  • Momenta Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:MNTA) +14.81%
  • Osmotica Pharmaceuticals (OSMT) +12.38%
  • Epizyme Inc. (EPZM) +11.64%

Afternoon trading was helped by an announcement from the Fed, reporting it would take an index approach to its $250 billion credit program focused on corporate bonds. All companies across the credit market will be represented as long as they meet criteria, primarily focused around ratings levels and maturity.

Other highlights for the day included the following:

  • JPMorgan was selected as the financial advisor to help Freddie Mac exit conservatorship
  • The New York Empire State Manufacturing Index improved to -0.20 in June from -48.5
  • The Treasury held auctions for three-month bills at a rate of 0.175% and six-month bills at a rate of 0.185%
