US Market View
US stock markets look set to break a four-day losing streak later, with the futures contracts for all three major indices trading higher in the overnight session. The International Energy Agency trimmed its forecast for global oil demand by 100 000 barrels a day, but still said it expected a robust recovery in global demand in 2021, resulting in average demand of 96.9 million barrels a day.
The US Food and Drug Administration will release its analysis of data from the stage 3 trial of Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine, a preliminary step toward the granting of emergency use authorization, which may come by the end of the week. The European Union added to Big Tech’s regulatory woes, publishing a draft regulation on digital services and markets with provisions allowing it to break up companies if they repeatedly offend. The Chinese economy has reached cruise control. Industrial production and retail sales continued to grow in November, underlining the country’s status as the only major world economy likely to grow this year, but the rate of improvement has flattened out in the last couple of months.
