After two straight days decline Major Indices rallied and ended higher with Nasdaq leading

The stock market clips continuous losses at session wrap up today, Wednesday, with all major indexes inching higher. This is the first time in 3 days that the equity benchmarks made gains.
SHEUNG WAN, Hong Kong - April 22, 2021 - PRLog -- The continuous losses were attributed to the fear of investors towards COVID-19 resurgence. With that out of the way, what's left is the concerns over possibility of increase in consumer market pricing as well as company input costs.
