Wake Up Wall Street (SPY) (QQQ): Two to go as markets snooze to the finish line

Here is what you need to know on Thursday, December 30:

Stocks look set for another modest day on Thursday as investors increasingly flee risk assets and look to position themselves for 2022. Many meme stocks suffered in an otherwise quiet Wednesday session with riskier assets being ignored or seeing book closing. The year appears to be ending on a calm note with investors happy to take the strong gains offered and start again next week. Covid still lurks over the next quarter with JetBlue (JBLU) announcing a raft of cancellations for January. China supply chain issues could be back for the first quarter of next year as China looks to take an increasingly hardline stance against the super transmissible omicron variant. China likely does not want its showcasing of the Winter Olympics in February to be in any way affected and has ordered sharp lockdowns.
