Global Market Highlight

DJIA rose by +1.60% on Monday (16/11) followed byS&P 500 (+1.16%) and Nasdaq (+0.80%). The good news about the success of the Moderna vaccine has again boosted the rate of global exchanges. In fact, the effectiveness of this vaccine reached 94% in the third phase of trials (higher than Pfizer's 90% effectiveness). This is able to treat the anxiety of market players in the midst of the increasing number of cases which has reached 11 million. If this vaccine is approved, Moderna is ready to deliver 20 million doses and next year it will distribute 500 million - 1 billion doses globally. Meanwhile, political turmoil in the US is still ongoing due to Trump's decision to reject the election results. The Republican Party also refused to coordinate with Biden and this hampered many important decisions regarding stimulus and handling the Covid-19 virus. Moreover, the market will look forward to several data releases today, such as: 1) US Retail Sales; 2) US Industrial Production; 3) US Business Inventory.
