European stock exchanges closed on the plus side on expectations for an acceleration of the region’s economic recovery
European stock indexes were up on Monday - DAX (Germany) gained 0.42%, FTSE 100 (UK) - 2.52%, CAC 40 (France) - 1.45%. The optimism on the trading floors continues to be supported by the coronavirus vaccines - players are hoping that they will accelerate the economic recovery in Europe and avoid new lockdowns. Investors especially reacted to the news of the UK authorities on the number of residents who received the vaccine - this caused the British index to break away from the rest. Besides, the positive factor was the growth of oil prices and rise in price of shares of some oil producers by 2.7% - 6.5%. The positive dynamics of European stock exchanges coincided with the mood on the world platforms. In the United States yesterday trading was not held in connection with a national holiday, Japanese index Nikkei set a new record, and Asian ended the day with growth in the range of 2%.
