  • In yesterday's session, investors traded cautiously as they weighed concerns about the omicron variant with data confirming the tightness of the U.S. labor market (layoffs hit a 28-year low in November) and mounting inflation pressures (euro area producer prices rose by 21.9% y/y in October).
  • ECB members Fabio Panetta and Olli Rehn reiterated that factors behind the rebound in inflation are transitory and should fade during 2022, even if persisting longer than previously anticipated.
  • In this context, stock indices and sovereign yields edged down in the euro area and rose in the U.S.
  • In oil markets, the price of the barrel of Brent fell after the OPEC+ announced it would stick with its plans to increase output by 400k barrels per day in January. Nevertheless, after falling to $67, it returned to previous levels and fluctuated above $70.
