Stocks reversed; Dow settings a new record high after infrastructure bill passes senate

Market moves generally higher, with the surging viral concerns negated by the positive outlook for the economic recovery which was a result of the passing of the infrastructure bill by the US Senate.
SHEUNG WAN, Hong Kong - Aug. 12, 2021 - PRLog -- The Delta variants' rampage across the country and abroad continues to cause concerns that have greatly affected the market direction yesterday, with the addition of China's travel restrictions being implemented again.

With that being said, both S&P 500 and the Dow sank while NASDAQ moved higher on Monday's session, and this was reversed today as NASDAQ moved lower while the Down and S&P 500 both eked out fresh intraday highs.
