The market shrugged off this mornings news that the FDA is going to pause the Johnson and Johnson COVID vaccine to look into 6 cases of reported blood clots. J&J is a minor player in the vaccine effort and the blood clots have been found in less than 1 person per million vaccinated but the news still weighed on the 30 stock Dow. J&J stock was modestly lower on the day.

At the close: the 8th all-time high in 9 days for the widely followed S&P 500

  • NASDAQ +146 to 13996
