TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
European shares pared early gains on Today even after positive news around AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine.
The drugmaker and Oxford University said their vaccine candidate was 70.4% effective on average, but ‘market chatter’ was that some had been hoping for a number closer to 80%.
One specific dose of the vaccine did appear to be as much as 90% effective but investors sold the news all the same, with depleted trading volumes ahead of the US Thanksgiving holiday possibly also playing a hand.
