(AOF) – The main European equity markets are expected to decline at the opening in the wake of the scattered close of the American places. Investors are playing it safe after Jerome Powell’s reappointment at the head of the Fed. Having been an exceptionally “dove” central banker during his first term, this moderate Republican might be tempted to win over the “hawk” camp in the second in the face of inflationary risk. In Europe, investors will react to news about the Covid resurgence and November PMI indices.

Wall Street ended in disarray after the announcement of the reappointment of Jerome Powell as head of the Fed.

The Nasdaq lost 1.26% to 15,854.76 points, penalized by the rise of the 10-year American.
