Stocks Are Poised for a Record Month; Oil Retreats: Markets Wrap

(Bloomberg) — Global stock markets are on the cusp of finishing a record-breaking month sparked by major progress toward a coronavirus vaccine.

Trading was muted on Monday, with European stocks holding steady and U.S. futures slightly lower. The MSCI World Index has soared 13% in November, the best performance on record.

“I suspect that investors have become cautious after big gains in the last few weeks that were driven by the vaccine news,” said Peter Rosenstreich, head of market strategy at Swissquote Bank. “It’s a big positive as it’s really provided an endgame for Covid-19.”

Emerging Markets Poised to Bounce Back in 2021

By Debbie Carlson

It’s been a tough decade to be an emerging-markets investor, as this sector has underperformed the S&P 500 since 2010.

But market watchers say after 10 years of lagging the U.S., emerging markets may finally be ready for prime time as valuations and a rebounding global economy could help the sector.

Marcelo Carvalho, head of global emerging market research at BNP Paribas, says although emerging markets still face several risks in the coming months, 2021 could be “a sweet spot” for these countries.

BNP Paribas, along with several other economic forecasters, say much of their 2021 outlook is based on effective and safe vaccines. So far several companies, including Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca have announced 90%-plus efficacy in late-stage vaccine trials. It’s a sentiment that’s lifting all markets, including emerging markets, says Pat O’Hare, chief market analyst at

“There’s welling up of expectations that you’re

Indian smartphone makers poised for comeback!

India does have a handful of home-grown smartphone manufacturers. But the bitter truth is that they have failed miserably in cornering the massive, lucrative home market.

The barrage of cheaper Chinese products packed with high-end specifications, making their way into India since 2016, have relegated Indian brands to oblivion. As of now, four Chinese brands, namely Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo and Realme, along with South Korea’s Samsung, command over 94 percent of our market.

Even the rising anti-China sentiment galvanised by the deadly Chinese attack on Indian troops in the northern border in Ladakh failed to revive the domestic manufacturers’ fate.  As per latest reports, smartphone shipments in India hit a record 50 million in the September quarter.

But there could be a glimmer of hope.

In October, after three-long years, Samsung gained the number one spot in India’s smartphone market beating Xiaomi. This is in part due to the anti-China

As traditional money markets boom to record highs of 4.6 trillion dollars, it is clear investors are looking for safe returns during these times of economic uncertainty. New start-ups like are making waves by leveraging new technologies to disrupt one the largest and oldest sectors of finance.
