A Record Month

In November, Global stock markets significantly rose caused by a better 2021 economic outlook driven by the coronavirus vaccines from three pharmaceutical companies. Additionally, the high liquidity available in the market injected from central banks through their quantitative easing programs combined with the US political clarity have accelerated the upward trend.

 Cyclical stocks led the rally and the Dow Jones Industrial Average traded above 30000 last week in a major break-through hitting an all-time high. However, there still fears from delays in vaccine distribution or people's refusal of the vaccine as it will allow the virus to spread further and hinder the economic recovery.
