The major stock indexes rose to the highs of the day Monday, but trading was volatile as investors weighed hopes of monetary easing and liquidity from central banks against further economic impact from Covid-19.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 550 points, or 2.2%. The S&P 500 rose 1.9% and the Nasdaq Composite gained 1.9%.

Sentiment was buoyed by global central bank action and other possible government moves to stabilize markets. The Group of Seven finance ministers plan to hold a teleconference to discuss action to address the novel coronavirus, Bloomberg reported citing people familiar with the matter.

In addition, President Donald Trump called on the Federal Reserve to move faster with rate cuts and also told reporters he had directed drug companies to speed up work on a vaccine for Covid-19.
