: After Trump actions on unemployment aid, stimulus negotiators can only talk about a lack of relief talks
In the wake of President Trump's actions over the weekend to make an end run around Congress and provide unemployment aid and other relief through presidential memorandums and an executive order, dueling television interviews Monday from Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin gave little reason to think there was much movement on a plan.

Nautilus shares jump 12% following record quarter amid at-home fitness trend
Nautilus Inc. shares were up 12% in after-hours trading Monday after the fitness-equipment maker reported fiscal second-quarter revenue that elevated well past Wall Street estimates, pushing the company's stock to its highest price in nearly two years. Nautilus reported a net loss of $5.1 million, or 17 cents per diluted share, compared with a loss of $78.9 million, or $2.66 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Revenue jumped 94% to $114.2 million from $59 million a year ago. "While we benefited from the COVID-19 at-home fitness trend, our team's agility and strong execution were essential to our outstanding results," Nautilus Chief Executive Jim Barr said in a statement. "We dramatically improved the flow of inventory in our supply chain by increasing factory capacity for our leading products by as much as 500%." Analysts surveyed by FactSet had expected a loss of 10 cents a share on revenue of $68.7 million. Nautilus shares are up 606% this year. The broader S&P 500 index has improved 4% in 2020.

Gold prices end higher Monday as China-U.S. conflict and superlow rates buoy bullion
Gold futures settled higher Monday, resuming a strong uptrend for the precious metal after snapping a five-session win streak on Friday, as China imposed fresh sanctions against U.S. officials in apparent retaliation for similar measures against Hong Kong and mainland officials last week. Wavering in the dollar, which attempted to perk up on Monday, and lackluster moves in government bond yields, failed to provide any headwind to further gains in gold's price. Negative real yields in most of the developed world, factoring inflation, and record low interest rates have investors have fostered appetite for silver and gold amid the global health crisis. Gold for December delivery added $11.70, or 0.6%, at $2,039.70 an ounce. Gold got off to a strong start as tensions appeared elevated between the U.S. and China. Beijing on Monday said it would impose sanctions on 11 U.S. citizens, including Republican Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.

Stocks open higher with Trump executive orders on coronavirus aid in focus
U.S. stock benchmarks opened modestly higher Monday as investors weighed the prospects of slowing fiscal aid for an economy whacked by the coronavirus. The Dow Jones Industrial Average added about 107 points, 0.4%, to open near 27,540, the S&P 500 rose 7 points or 0.2% to open near 3,358, and the Nasdaq Composite touched 11,034 at the start of trading, adding about 23 points or 0.2%. Stocks closed mostly higher Friday even though congressional talks on extending virus aid broke down. Investors must now consider the unilateral actions taken by President Donald Trump over the weekend, which some analysts say are likely to be both illegal and ineffective but could prompt a fresh round of congressional negotiations. Travel companies like Marriott International Inc. and Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. were mixed in early morning trade after reporting wider-than-expected losses Monday.
