Markets Live Recap: Stocks Rise Despite 3.17 Million More Unemployment Claims

There are also expectations from analysts that demand for the commodity will increase as some economies attempt to reopen around the world.

The S&P 500 was up as much as 1.8% mid-day, but only closed 0.9% higher.

But it's to be determined if they'll be able to do that without spreading the coronavirus further.

Here's what our experts – Chris Johnson, D.R. Barton, Jr., and Shah Gilani – think investors should be doing with their money today.
