Investors are keeping an eye on further developments around the omicron variant. White House Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday that the initial data on the variant is “encouraging,” though he cautioned that more information is needed.

In addition, investors are also monitoring the Federal Reserve’s plans to tighten monetary policy.
