MORNING CALL: THAT VACCINE THING DOING ITS THING AGAIN (0540 GMT)
Here we go again: European futures are trading in the black after a positive session in Asia
where renewed hopes of a coronavirus vaccine have beefed up sentiment.
It's not the first time nor will it be the last that investors cling to the prospect of a
vaccine clearing the way out of the pandemic and so much will happen in the meantime.
Brexit, the U.S. election you name it!
It must be said that M&A is also playing its part in infusing some optimism with notably
Nvidia set to buy UK-based chip designer Arm from Japan's SoftBank Group for as much as $40
Anyhow, London, Paris and Frankfurt are seen opening up but quite modestly, between 0.2% and
0.4%, while Wall Street futures are much more bullish and trading above 1%.
