London, Tuesday, 4 January 2022


US Markets summary

European Markets summary


The pan-European STOXX 600 index closed at a new high on Tuesday, with Frankfurt's DAX 30 index rising beyond 16,100 to a six-week high and London's FTSE 100 index reaching a new record high. Investors believe the economic impact of Omicron is not as catastrophic as it could be, as countries avoid further restrictions following news of fewer-than-expected hospitalizations against a backdrop of record surges in new cases. Travel, banking, and commodities companies were among the greatest performers. Stay-at-home stocks, such as food delivery businesses Delivery Hero and Just Eat Takeaway.com, as well as healthcare names like Novo Nordisk, Roche, and AstraZeneca, sank dramatically.
