S&P 500 rallies as FDA set to approve vaccine – 8th December

The record highs for stock indices in the United States continued Tuesday, as both the NASDAQ and S&P 500 recorded new highs.

Markets rose on the news that the FDA stated that data submitted by Pfizer appeared to show the vaccine provided protection against COVID-19 after the first dose.

The Foods and Drugs agency is set to further review the vaccine in the next few days with hopes of a potential approval delighting investors.

Initial documents from the FDA showed that the vaccine was 82% effective for the combined group of people who took one or two doses.

The agency previously indicated that it would approve a vaccine which is over 50% effective.

Poland hesitant to agree to EU Stimulus terms

News circulated today stating that Poland and Hungary are blocking the European Union’s economic recovery deal, as they oppose a clause linking the release of funds to the rule of law.

Both nations believe the clause impacts their sovereignty and seek further talks before approving the €1.8 trillion recovery package.

The Polish PM stated that, “It may happen that another summit will be necessary… maybe there will be more long months of negotiations and a possible provisional budget. No scenarios should be ruled out at this stage.”

Germany’s DAX was marginally up despite this.
