In addition, investors optimistically discounted the news coming from China, where the government is encouraging the country’s banks to support the residential sector with new loans.
On the day’s agenda, investors will be watching the German consumer confidence index prepared by the GfK consultancy. Likewise, the same indicator from the European Commission will appear for the euro zone.
The last sessions of the year are being especially volatile and marked by the news on omicron. To a large extent, this will be the factor that determines the sustainability of the rebound.
