Ibex 35

have been the banks, which have led the selective to its

highest rise in two months with an advance of the 3.2%

Elections in the USA

Many of the investors were awaiting the results of the elections in Georgia, in the United States, where the Democrats have taken a new seat in the Senate.

This result, in the absence of the assignment of another seat, partially clears the uncertainty about the distribution of the Upper House, which would facilitate Joe Biden the development of his political agenda and favor the stability of the country.

The market already discounts the Democratic victory in the Senate.

If Joe Biden's party prevails in Georgia, it would get 50 senators, the same as the Republicans, although they would have the tiebreaker vote in future legislative debates of the one who will be President of the Senate and Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris.

The other focus of interest for investors was located in Brussels, where the

(EMA) has given the go-ahead for the use of Moderna's vaccine and it may begin to be applied in EU countries.
