24 November 2020 Definitely positive openings for European stock exchanges, driven by two factors: on the one hand, the vaccine race that extends to other pharmaceutical companies, on the other, Trump's opening to the handover and appointment by Biden of former Federal President Janet Yellen as Secretary of the Treasury.

Shortly after 9.40 Milan is the best among the Europeans, gaining almost a point and a half, followed by Paris up by about one point. London and Frankfurt mark + 0.60%.

The Wall Street session was especially positive for the Dow Jones (+ 1.12%).

Tokyo - after yesterday's holiday - returns to trading very well and closes at + 2.5%.

The spread between the Italian BTPs and the German Bund falls again to 115 basis points (minimum yield: 0.58%).
