    Resmetirom would be the first approved treatment for NASH, or nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, a disease that affects about 5% of adults in the United States.

    The data gives the $MDGL a timely boost after it raised “going concern” doubts in November citing lack of adequate cash. This move would have also been impacted by short covering, squeezing based on that

    The main indices were able to lift off early lows recently.

    More S&P 500 sectors reached positive territory as the S&P 500 tested its flat line. Roughly half of the 11 sectors sit in positive territory now.

    Market intervals reveal somewhat mixed action with declining issues leading advancing issues by fairly slim margins. Decliners lead advancers by an 11-to-10 margin at the NYSE and a 3-to-2 margin at the Nasdaq.


    U.S. Treasuries sit on their lows after adding to their initial losses.

    The 10-yr note and shorter tenors began the day near their lows from Friday while the long bond slipped past its low from Friday at the open. The market has added to its losses since then with longer tenors continuing their underperformance.

    The selling comes amid some renewed economic optimism in Europe, but equities have gotten off to a shaky start. The S&P 500 hovers juts below its flat line while the Nasdaq (-0.5%) underperforms.
