FTSE 100 Closed Up as It Shrugs off the Week's Negative Sentiment
The FTSE 100 closed up on Friday as it shrugged off some of the week's negative sentiment with banks and energy names compensating for weaker tech stocks. Positive results from the U.S. earnings season have bolstered confidence in other indices and sectors in the hope that the global economic rebound is still on track, Chris Beauchamp at IG says. "The FTSE 100 has shaken off much of the negativity of earlier in the week, and is putting its best foot forward in a bid to surpass recent highs. As with U.S. indices, raw materials and banks are behind the strength in the index," Beauchamp says.

U.S. stock futures gained ground ahead of the first trading day of August after the S&P 500 logged its sixth straight monthly gain in July. While dropping Friday and last week, the S&P 500 and the Dow headed into the new month within 1% of their latest record high closes set last Monday. The Nasdaq, which also fell Friday and last week, remained just over 1% shy of last Monday's record close. (CNBC)

Volatility in financial markets has recently increased as Covid cases in the U.S. spiked due to the delta variant. The 10-year Treasury yield was steady Monday, around 1.23%. The yield, which moves inversely to price, hit a 5 -month low of nearly 1.13% last month. (CNBC)

In the week ahead, three reports looking at the health of the labor market kicks off Wednesday with the ADP's July private-sector jobs report. The government's weekly look at initial jobless claims and July employment report are out Thursday and Friday, respectively.

Evictions, which have mostly been on pause during the pandemic, are expected to ramp up Monday after a federal moratorium expired over the weekend.

Moderna (MRNA) and Pfizer (PFE) both raised prices for their Covid vaccines in their latest supply contracts, according to the Financial Times. Additionally, The Wall Street Journal reported that the FDA is under pressure to give both vaccines full approval.

A preponderance of evidence proves the virus that caused the Covid pandemic leaked from a Chinese research facility, claimed a report by U.S. Republicans released on Monday, a conclusion that American intelligence agencies have not reached. The report also cited "ample evidence" that Wuhan Institute of Virology were working to modify coronaviruses to infect humans and such manipulation could be hidden. (Reuters)

Square (SQ) plans to buy Australian fintech Afterpay as it looks to expand into the booming installment loan market. Jack Dorsey's payments company announced the $29 billion, all-stock deal on Sunday evening. The price tag marks a roughly 30% premium to Afterpay's closing price Friday. Shares of Afterpay in Australia closed nearly 19% higher Monday. Square shares fell 4% in Monday's premarket. (CNBC)

More than 300,000 users of Robinhood (HOOD) bought shares in the popular stock trading app's IPO last week, according to The Wall Street Journal. That represents about 1.3% of the company's funded account base. Robinhood added 1.5% in premarket trading. The stock, as of Friday's close, remained below its $38 offer price.

Federal officials used charges against Nikola (NKLA) founder Trevor Milton as a warning to Wall Street about special purpose acquisitions companies.

Walt Disney's (DIS) "Jungle Cruise" sailed to a better-than-expected weekend opening of $34.2 million at the domestic box office, despite growing concerns that a surge in coronavirus cases could keep families at home.
