TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Frankfurt’s DAX 30 index ended its last trading session of the year slightly lower at 13,719, not far from a record high of 13,903 reached on Tuesday. It booked also a 4.4% yearly gain in 2020, even as March saw one of the most dramatic stock markets crashes in history triggered by the coronavirus crisis, sending the index to a near seven-year low on March 16th. Since then, the stock market rally has been supported by optimism about a quicker economic recovery, the roll-out of COVID-19 vaccines, the EU-UK agreement on post-Brexit trade, and massive fiscal and monetary policy support globally. German financial markets will be closed from Thursday and reopen on Monday, January 4th.
