    Moderna, Appian Lead Nasdaq to Record Highs

    The Nasdaq Composite (NASDAQINDEX: ^IXIC) had to deal with something on Tuesday that it hasn't encountered much in 2020: standing on the sidelines and watching other major market benchmarks hit new record highs. Shares of Moderna were higher by 11% on Wednesday. The European Commission agreed to buy 80 million doses of Moderna's vaccine, with an option to buy up to 160 million doses.

    US STOCKS-S&P 500, Dow pull back from all-time closing highs after grim jobless data

    The S&P 500 index closed lower on Wednesday as mounting U.S. layoffs in the wake of new mandated lockdowns to contain surging COVID-19 infections dampened investor risk appetite. The index and the Dow Jones Industrial Average retreated from record closing highs, pulled lower by cyclicals and small caps that drove the rally earlier in the week. Pandemic-resilient tech and tech-adjacent market leaders helped keep the Nasdaq afloat.

    The S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average retreated from record closing highs, pulled lower by cyclicals and small caps that drove the rally earlier in the week. Pandemic-resilient tech and tech-adjacent market leaders helped keep the Nasdaq afloat.
