The CROWN Coalition is excited and proud to announce Connecticut is the first state in 2021 and eighth state to pass and enact The CROWN Act. The passage serves as a timely reminder that this prevalent form of discrimination warrants a legislative fix, and we reaffirm our commitment to supporting outlawing hair discrimination. The CROWN Act – which stands for Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair, is critically important legislation that extends statutory protection to traits historically associated with race, such as hair texture and/or protective styles in the workplace and schools. The Crown Coalition is the official national supporter of The CROWN Act movement; an alliance cofounded by Dove, National Urban League, Western Center on Law & Poverty and Color Of Change, with support from now over 80 organizations.

The U.S. 5-year and 7-year note yields were up between five to six basis points, while that of the benchmark 10-year note hit nearly a 13-month high. The break-even inflation rate on 10-year Treasury Inflation Protected Securities, a gauge of expected annual inflation over the next 10 years, climbed to 2.26% on Monday, the highest level since July 2014, from 2.235% last Friday.

A Brazilian Supreme Court judge on Monday annulled the criminal convictions against former leftist President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, a move that could allow the popular politician to run in next year's presidential election. The decision roiled financial markets and scrambled forecasts for the 2022 race, with many investors betting it would polarize voters between President Jair Bolsonaro, a far-right populist, and Lula, his greatest opponent on the left. In a surprise decision, Justice Edson Fachin said that a court in the southern city of Curitiba did not have the authority to try Lula on corruption charges and that he must be retried in federal courts in the capital Brasilia.

The nearly $3 trillion U.S. repurchase or repo market, an opaque but vital component of the financial system, was thrown into flux last week after the cost of borrowing the benchmark 10-year Treasury note went deeply negative on Thursday, hitting a rate of -4.25%, the lowest since mid-March last year. The negative repo rate means some market participants were willing to pay interest on money lent to borrow the U.S. 10-year note. On Monday, the average repo rate on the 10-year was -2.91%, according to dealers.

(Bloomberg) -- One of the best manifestations of the rotation from formerly high-flying growth stocks to value shares can be seen in the divergence of the Nasdaq 100 from the Dow Jones Industrial Average.As the 125-year-old benchmark sets another intraday record, the Nasdaq 100 is slumping toward a level traditionally seen as a correction. It’s the first time since 1993 that the Dow was at a record, while the tech-heavy gauge was this close to a 10% drop from its high.“Investors are feeling better about the recovery and looking to own improving fundamentals within large caps outside of tech and growth where valuations are more reasonable,” said Mike Bailey, director of research at FBB Capital Partners. “The focus on better fundamentals at a reasonable price may be driving the Dow to new highs.”About 90% of the 30-member Dow index traded higher Monday as of 2:40 p.m. in New York, with shares of Walt Disney Co. leading with a more-than 5.7% gain. Visa Inc. added about 4% while Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Home Depot Inc. each advanced more than 2%. Meanwhile, drops in Apple Inc. and Tesla Inc. weighed on the 36-year-old Nasdaq 100.Shares of other companies that had done well in 2020’s stay-at-home environment, including Microsoft Corp. and Netflix Inc., also dented on the tech-centric Nasdaq 100, as did those whose businesses helped consumers work from home during the pandemic, including Zoom Video Communications Inc., which fell almost 6% and DocuSign Inc., down about 4%.The split-market activity on display is another manifestation of the rotation underway as investors switch into shares of companies whose fortunes are closely tied to the economic cycle. That’s been painful for high-growth, high-valuation tech shares that become less appealing amid bond-market turbulence that’s sent yields on 10-year Treasuries to 1.61%.Earlier: SPAC Froth Turns on Itself With Stocks Plunging 20% in Two WeeksThe rotation is even harsher in once-hot areas like the market for special-purpose acquisition companies, or SPACs, another 2020 craze whose allure has fizzled in recent days. A gauge tracking such firms -- IPOX SPAC Index -- declined about 2% Monday, its fourth down day out of the last five sessions. A popular SPAC by Chamath Palihapitiya -- the Social Capital Hedosophia Holdings Corp. V, or IPOE -- fell as much as 11% at one point Monday.“It feels like an attitude adjustment for tech and growth stocks,” said Bailey. “Investors have decided that these Covid winners just got too expensive and now it’s time for a valuation haircut.”(Adds additional stocks starting in the fourth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Over the weekend, the Senate passed a sweeping $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill that includes boosted unemployment benefits, expanded health insurance subsidies, a more generous Child Tax Credit, and a third round of stimulus checks, this time worth $1,400 apiece. The Senate bill allows individuals earning up to $75,000 or married couples earning up to $150,000 to collect a full stimulus payment. All told, around 12 million Americans who were eligible for a stimulus payment during the first two rounds won't be able to collect one this time around.
