The major US indices are up again on Monday following Black Friday’s plunge and the announcement of the new Covid-19 variant Omicron.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 297 points, or 0.8%, to about 35,200, the S&P 500 index improved 71 points, or 1.6%, to around 4,665, while the Nasdaq Composite Index soared 313 points, or 2%, to near 15,802 and a session high.

At the close of trading on Black Friday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average plummeted around 905 points, or 2.5%, to post its worst day of the year, while the S&P 500 went down 2.3% and the Nasdaq Composite was right behind with a 2.2% dip during session trading.

At its session low, the Blue-Chip Dow lost over 1,000 points.

Winners and losers: Twitter up and down after CEO exit

On Monday, shares of Twitter dipped $1.29 per share, or 2.7%, to $45.78. Stock prices for the tech giant wobbled during trading on Monday after CEO Jack Dorsey announced his resignation, effective immediately.

At the close of the session, shares for Twitter were 2.7% lower, but are trading higher after hours, up 0.7%.

Shares of Pfizer improved by $14.52, or 4.2%, to $362.52, while shares of Moderna went up $38.88 or 12% as the new Covid-19 strain, Omicron, creates further disruptions in the global supply chain.

Moderna’s stock surged more than 20% Friday after Moderna said it was working to advance an Omicron-specific booster candidate.

In other tech stocks, shares of Microsoft and Apple are both trading over 2% higher.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
