EU Market View
Asian equity markets traded mostly lower as sentiment gradually deteriorated from the mixed performance stateside. Oil futures traded near two-month highs due to hope for a vaccine and a larger-than-expected drawdown in U.S. crude inventories. U.S. stocks were mixed as investors switched back to technology stocks and away from economically sensitive sectors as they weighed COVID-19 vaccine progress and the likely timing of an economic rebound.
Looking ahead, highlights from the macroeconomic calendar include UK GDP, US CPI and Initial/Continued Jobless Claims, ECB's Lagarde, de Guindos, Mersch Schnabel; Fed's Powell, Williams and Evans, BoE's Bailey speeches. The U.S. dollar edged lower against the yen and yuan as traders adjusted positions before U.S. President-elect Joe Biden takes office next year.
