Global Market Highlight

DJIA increase by +1.54% on on Tuesday (24/11) followed by S&P 500 (+1.62%) and Nasdaq (+1.31%). The "green light" of the US administration's transition from Trump to Biden prompted the stock to rally. Various administrative resources and facilities have been opened up indicating that US political turmoil is starting to subside. In addition, Biden also formed a cabinet with a focus on building a sustainable economy rather than aggressive regulation. This was responded positively by market players. On the other hand, the US PMI data for November continued to improve. The Manufacturing PMI was at 56.7 (previously 53.4) and the Service PMI was at 57.7 (previously 56.9). Even though the Covid-19 case is still on the rise, investors are more focused on future economic recovery in line with the presence of various vaccines such as Pfizer, Moderna and most recently Sputnik V (Russia). Moreover, the market will look forward to several data releases today, such as: 1) US GDP Growth Rate QoQ 2nd Est; 2) US Core PCE Price Index YoY; 3) US Michigan Consumer Sentiment Final.
