1. It’s going to be a busy week on Wall Street as a host of earnings take place, and negotiations for a new stimulus package continue. Anticipation for earnings has the market in the green on Monday morning, but only marginally, with McDonald’s (MCD), Pfizer (PFE), Alphabet (GOOG), Apple (AAPL), and Amazon (AMZN) amongst the companies slated to release their latest quarterly figures this week.
