Friday’s Factors and Events

There are a lot of measures in the bill, but the bottom line is to get money to people and organizations that really need it in an economy that has largely shut down in the past few weeks.

This upward momentum completely overshadowed a truly startling initial jobless claims number. According to the Labor Department, there were nearly 3.3 million claims last week, which was an all-time record and well above the consensus.
