Investors traded in a mixed mood in yesterday's session, amid higher expectations of a fiscal push in the U.S., tighter mobility restrictions and political uncertainty in Italy.
In yesterday's session investors continued trading with moderate optimism. Despite the evolution of the pandemic and the weekly 23k increase in initial unemployment claims in the US, hopes that the fiscal stimulus would be finally unveiled led the main US stock indices to new record highs.
The accommodative monetary policy stance confirmed in yesterday's Federal Reserve's meeting and the better-than-expected December flash PMIs in the euro area kept optimism among investors. In particular, the manufacturing indices were expected to fall but managed to increase, and the services indices rose but remained below 50.
