TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
It was another bullish day for the European majors, which saw green for a 2nd consecutive day, with the DAX30 rising by 0.57% to lead the way. The CAC40 and EuroStoxx600 weren’t far behind with gains of 0.40% and 0.33% respectively.
Twitter delivered the upside on the day, with a Trump tweet late on Thursday announcing that a trade deal was close leading to a broad-based market rebound.
The tweet came off the back of reports that the U.S administration was not only going to cancel the 15th December tariffs, but also half existing tariffs on $360bn worth of Chinese goods.
The majors had been in the red ahead of the tweet, however, though the losses were minor in spite of uncertainty as Britain headed to the polls.
