LGT Navigator: Bargain hunters cause renewed recovery on the stock exchanges

On Wall Street, investors found attractive entry levels on Thursday and ensured a renewed recovery of the stock indices. At midweek, the infection with the new virus variant Omicron, which was also detected in the US for the first time, as well as inflation and interest rate fears had caused prices to fall. The US labor market report due this afternoon, which will be decisive, particularly for the Fed regarding the pace of the planned curbing of monetary policy, is likely to cause caution on the capital markets in the run-up.

In addition to inflation concerns, the new coronavirus variant Omicron continues to weigh on stock market sentiment.

Investors are currently cautiously weighing the latest knowledge regarding the new coronavirus variant Omicron. However, it is still unclear whether the variant is more transmissible or deadly than the currently dominant delta variant.

LGT Navigator: “Omikron” shakes capital markets worldwide

Fear of a new coronavirus variant caused a sell-off on the international stock markets on “Black Friday” of all days, or rather a flight into safe values.

Until there is more clarity, this will continue to provide for continued uncertainty and increased volatility on the financial markets over the week in view of the already significantly more tense pandemic situation.
