While some investors remain optimistic that the re-opening of the economy will eventually return life to normal, others are getting caught up in a slew of distractions including increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases, trade protectionism and politics.

While these factors may be fueling investor uncertainty, some on Wall Street received a dose of clarity on Thursday after U.S. regulators said they would ease restrictions on banks that were implemented following the financial crisis.

Bank stocks rallied on the news including Dow components JPMorgan Chase, which rose over 2% and Goldman Sachs which jumped 3.1%.
