TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

It ended up being stock markets that were marked down on Friday following confirmation of a worrisome new Covid-19 in southern Africa.

“The Black Friday sales have extended to global stocks today, with a huge risk-off move sparking weakness across the board for equities”, said IG senior market analyst Josh Mahony.

“Fears around the new variant found in South Africa bring concern that we could be on the cusp of yet another wave of infections and subsequent restrictions.”
