#Nasdaq Composite ended the day up 1.53%.

Tech stocks helped to propel the Nasdaq higher as Facebook gained 3.87%, Alphabet increased 3.29%, Microsoft rose 1.78%, Apple grew 0.54% and Amazon closed up 0.53%.

Markets also responded to comments by Janet Yellen, President-elect Joe Biden’s nominee for treasury secretary, during her Senate confirmation hearing. Yellen called for the federal government to take further action to boost the economy hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Neither the president-elect, nor I, propose this relief package without an appreciation for the country’s debt burden. But right now, with interest rates at historic lows, the smartest thing we can do is act big,” Yellen said. “I believe the benefits will far outweigh the costs, especially if we care about helping people who have been struggling for a very long time.”

Nasdaq closed up 198.677 at 13,197.179. Volume was 24% above average (neutral) and Bollinger Bands were 42% narrower than normal.
