Today's market sentiment is being appetite for risk. Congress reconvened to complete the ratification of President-elect Joe Biden's electoral college victory, with congressmen returning to the House of Representatives and Senate hours after they left due to a protest by pro-Trump protesters on Capitol Hill.  A new record for the Dow due to expectations of more stimulus for the U.S. economy is helping to boost European stocks this Thursday. The dollar recovers against most G10 currencies after U.S.

Today's market sentiment is appetite for risk. Democratic candidate Raphael Warnock defeated Republican candidate Kelly Loeffler in the Georgia Senate race, becoming the first African-American to represent the state in the Senate and the first Democrat in 2005. The dollar continues to fall against most major rivals as the results of the U.S. Senate elections in Georgia are known. The Treasurys' yields for 10 years reached the 1% threshold for the first time since March, after Georgia's election results boosted expectations that Democrats could gain control of the Senate.

Today's market sentiment is aversion to risk. A new national lockdown in the UK to contain coronavirus infection rates, along with uncertainty regarding votes for the Georgia Senate, are motivating current sentiment. European stocks are opening lower on Tuesday after US indexes fell sharply. The dollar came under pressure again during the Asian session, following the resurgence of Covid-19 cases around the world and before the second round of Georgia's Senate elections.

Today's market sentiment is being of appetite for risk. The distribution of vaccines for covid-19, as well as the stimulus that have been launched, support positive sentiment. Unprecedented measures taken by governments and central banks to support economies have encouraged investors to focus on the outlook for the next year, even if restrictions are likely to be increased because of the virus. The dollar continues to fall against most rivals on Monday due to strengthened optimism in the global economic recovery this year.

The restless year of 2020 seems to be ending with optimism as compensation for all the disturbances that investors experienced during this year. The last week of the year is concentrated on all the latest positive news, which is the type of news that did not surface over the stretch of the other 51 weeks of 2020. The new relief bill saga in the United States, which lasted for several months, finally ended with the approval of Congress and the bill being signed into law by the President Donald Trump.

Just before the end of the year, not many factors are directing the markets. All the three of major U.S. stock indexes just renewed their all-time records this Monday as risk appetite has grown on great news about the long-awaited COVID-19 relief bill. This positive wave from across the pond combined with the U.K. and EU successful last-minute divorce agreement on free trade issues supported both the island and continental assets, so that the German Xetra Dax 30 and the composite Euro Stoxx indexes touched their corresponding peak values of 2020.

A new and reportedly highly infectious strain of the same obtrusive coronavirus which was discovered at the British Isles and then also found somewhere in mainland Europe, had propelled into a rather strong downside intraday market correction on Monday. The UK 100 Index on the London Stock Exchange lost 3.2% in just four hours while the composite Euro Stoxx 50 fell even more as a reaction. But both the European continental and the British stocks generally recovered during the last two trading days before Christmas, as well as the U.S.

The United Kingdom became a lead actor this Christmas week as the news about the new coronavirus strain discovered in this country sharply hit markets. Risky assets went under a sell-off in recent days as new fears over the spread of the coronavirus and the possible ineffectiveness of the vaccines which have begun to be distributed, seemed to freeze investors’ hearts. Moreover, EU-UK trade negotiations over Brexit have been unsuccessful so far and this has amplified skepticism that the deal will be reached before the final-final deadline on December 31.

On December 16, the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) issued a regular statement of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) and shared its economic projections. The members of the Board of Governors reaffirmed their readiness to use a "full range of tools to support the U.S. economy in this challenging time", including all the necessary asset purchases, which "help foster smooth market functioning and accommodative financial conditions, thereby supporting the flow of credit to households and businesses".

Federal Reserve (Fed) and its Chairman Jerome Powell have said nothing particularly new after the Fed’s Federal Open Market Committee meeting, which was the last meeting for 2020. Hopes for a further softening of monetary policy by the Fed eventually were not fulfilled. Interest rates were kept within the range of 0-0.25% and the Fed will continue to increase its holdings of securities by $120 billion a month, disappointing those who hoped for an extension of the purchase program. The monetary policymaker will buy U.S.
