Top Stocks To Buy Today As Markets Trade Flat Amid Stimulus Uncertainty

The US stock market traded flat as uncertainty over the stimulus put a cap on gains over the last few trading sessions. Employment data showed that the unemployment benefits were at its lowest level since the pandemic began coming in at 1.186 million for the week. Gold prices continued their meteoric rise as they hit the $2,050 an ounce level. Meanwhile, the yield on long term treasury continued to drop and crude prices traded marginally higher. Investors have their eyes on the pandemic stimulus this week as congress deliberates, and any deadlock could have an impact on the equity markets. The US jobs report is expected on Friday for July and is another indicator that will be watched closely.
