Good company news and a number of positive analyst comments stimulated the stock markets today. In addition, there is increasing hope for another US economic stimulus package. The DAX® managed to break above the 13,000 point mark. The EuroStoxx®50 gained just under one percent and closed at 3,260 points. The number of initial jobless claims in the United States was slightly higher than experts expected. However, this could not dampen the good mood. Among the sector stocks, the European Biotech Index and the Global Hydrogen Index again showed strength.
The increased number of new infections has again unsettled some investors today and caused bond prices to rise. This caused a slight decline in yields. The yield on 10-year Bunds fell by almost three points to -0.52 percent and the yield on comparable US bonds to 0.77 percent. Meanwhile, the precious metal market remained calm. The gold price stagnated above the $ 1,880 mark and silver just below $ 24 per troy ounce. Meanwhile, palladium is showing strength and is targeting the US $ 2,400 mark. After yesterday’s setback, the oil price resumed its short-term upward trend today. OPEC stated that the cartel expects an increase in demand in the medium to long term. If the price breaks above EUR 43.30, the price of a barrel of Brent Crude could start a sustained upward trend.
