A statement rocked European equity markets and kept traders in suspense. Until mid-morning it was thought that the stock exchanges could collapse. Then suddenly there was a recovery and the European markets started to rise, until the negative start of Wall Street.

According to Stephane Bancel, it will take a couple of weeks to see how effective the vaccines are against the Omicron variant.

The same fate befell Piazza Affari which started badly and lost almost 2% in the morning.
