Trump initially did not approve the legislation
Vinod Nair, research head, Geojit Financial Services, said, “With a positive global trend, the Indian market opened with an edge in the last week of the year. “Us President Donald Trump has signed $2,300 billion in spending on the global market with the announcement of a $2,300 billion pandemic package in the US and the landmark Brexit agreement between the UK and the European Union. These include the $900 billion Corona Virus Relief Package (Coronavirus relief package). However, Trump had refused to approve the legislation for several days. He described the bill as “insulting”.
The expected effect of the corona vaccine!
India is now expected to get Corona Vaccine. This has also strengthened the perception of domestic stock markets. BSE SmallCap, MidCap, and LargeCap outperformed the broader market stance and climbed to 1.49 percent. Other Asian markets, China, Japan, South Korea, and Hong Kong closed with remarkable gains. Meanwhile, global benchmark Brent crude oil futures rose 1.25 percent to $51.94 a barrel.
