ET Retail Sales Slump as Economic Recovery Shows Signs of Stalling: Live Updates RIGHT NOW Banks are starting to release their rainy-day reserves, giving their earnings a boost. JPMorgan Chase reported earnings of just over $12 billion, although the increase was attributed mostly to the newly freed funds. Still, the economic recovery that many thought would come once vaccinations began has been postponed, at least until the spring. Those gains have come even as fresh data shows the economic damage being done by the pandemic. On Friday, the Commerce Department said retail sales fell for a third-straight month in December, despite the holiday shopping season.

Gold prices edged up on Wednesday as a recent rally in the U.S. dollar and Treasury yields hit a pause, while rising coronavirus cases worldwide also boosted appeal for the safe-haven metal. Spot gold rose 0.1% to $1,856.86 per ounce by 0052 GMT, while U.S. gold futures gained 0.8% to $1,858.10. Benchmark 10-year Treasury yields pulled back from 10-month highs, dragging the dollar lower and making gold cheaper for other unit holders. Global coronavirus infections rose to more than 91 million, with several Asian and European countries enforcing stricter restrictions to curb the spread of the virus. The U.S. House of Representatives plans to vote as soon as Wednesday on an article of impeachment charging President Trump with inciting insurrection after his supporters stormed the Capitol.

The past week has called on corporate leaders across industries to take a stand against the insurgence at the US Capitol. In the coming year, consumers will be watching for how company leaders take a stand for the causes they believe in — and lukewarm messaging won't cut it anymore. After news of the attempted coup spread on Wednesday, business leaders across the board issued public statements. Going forward, stakeholders will keep their eyes trained on their company leaders, waiting to see which direction they'll steer their companies next. They'll be watching to see if their leaders have the courage to take a stand for the causes they claim to care about.

National Guardsmen called up to defend the US Capitol paused for a photo with a statue of a civil rights icon only a week after a pro-Trump mob desecrated its halls. The tribute to Rosa Parks, who famously refused to give up her bus seat to a white passenger, is the first full-length statue of a Black American in the US Capitol. Americans were shocked by the pro-Trump mob who sieged the Capitol in a deadly assault and who carried hate symbols like Confederate flags and Nazi-inspired ones — historical enemies US troops defeated in America's deadliest wars.

“He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.” “These facts require immediate actions by President Trump,” he continued. A few Republicans defended him, but most others simply argued that a rush to impeach Mr. Trump without a hearing or an investigation raised constitutional questions. With Democrats controlling the House, Mr. Trump is expected to become the first American president to be impeached twice. Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington sent a letter to Mr. Trump on Sunday asking for an emergency declaration to obtain additional funding for inauguration security. On Tuesday, a federal inspector general questioned an order to deliver the estimates before Mr. Trump leaves office, after whistle-blowers warned that the rush would imperil their accuracy.
