(FinancialHealth.net) – Things have looked a lot different in the US since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in New York City. The financial capital of the world was hit especially hard by the virus, and many of the businesses in the city have closed for safety reasons. The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) trading floor was one of those, but on May 26 business began to return to normal.
On Tuesday, Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) rang the bell at the NYSE to begin the trading day.

The governor celebrated the partial reopening of the floor. It closed on March 23 to protect Wall Street traders from contracting and spreading the deadly coronavirus.
President Donald Trump noted stocks were up today and said the rest of the country should begin reopening as well.
Stock Market up BIG, DOW crosses 25,000. S&P 500 over 3000. States should open up ASAP. The Transition to Greatness has started, ahead of schedule. There will be ups and downs, but next year will be one of the best ever!

The reopening of the NYSE is a signal that the country is returning to normal. It’s going to take a little while for life to look like it did before the pandemic rocked the world, but we should celebrate every step forward. The country has lost a great deal; there’s no doubt, however, that it’ll be great again. Especially under Trump’s leadership.
