The stock market soared today, with a very healthy and positive returns on investments all around. Many American financial companies reported strong earnings. This helped raised the 3 indexes, Dow Jones up 1.6% and S&P500 and Nasdaq up 1.7%. There were also reports of drops in jobless claims. These are all positive signs of recovery from the Pandemic.  (article).

How this affects our $1000 investment in Wealthfront  – our Wealthfront stocks finally had a significant gain and while it was below the initial investment of 1000 for the last few weeks, it’s currently at $1003.08.  

Today’s outcome is Stocks win over REITs, while a small growth of 3 cents for Fundrise, Wealthfront had a significant gain of $15.38 daily increase. Still, the running total balance of REITs is $1,123.08, which is a a substantial gap over stock market, $1003.08.
