(AOF) – European equity markets should rebound early in the session. The expected increase cannot, however, compensate for the fall recorded last Friday. Oil, which sank 9% at the end of the week, gained 4.6% this morning. On the bond market, the yield of the 10-year US dollar, which fell sharply on Friday due to renewed risk aversion, is also upbeat (+4.8 basis points to 1.527%). Investors are taking note of the rapid reaction of governments to the threat of the new Omicron variant. They are now awaiting information concerning its dangerousness.

Friday in Paris
European equity markets fell like all world markets. The assets at risk are carried away by the fear generated by the appearance in South Africa of a new variant potentially very contagious and resistant to current vaccines. In the turmoil, values related to health logically draw their pin from the game. On the other hand, investors have deserted values related to tourism, transport but also trade. The CAC 40 plunged 4.75% to 6,739.73 points while the Euro Stoxx 50 dropped 4.65% to 4,093.72 points.
Friday on Wall Street

Sign of the ambient nervousness caused by this variant, the Vix index, called “of fear”, jumped 40% to reach its highest level since September. Markets closed 7:00 p.m. KST due to Thanksgiving. The Dow Jones lost 2.53% to 34,899.34 points. The Nasdaq dropped 2.23% to 15,491.66 points.
