European shares extend rally on vaccine cheer

11/23/2020 | 07:09am EST

European shares jumped on Monday (Nov 23)

Encouraging developments around a coronavirus vaccine spurred bets of a faster economic revival globally.

The pan-European STOXX 600 index rose 0.4% and hit a fresh high since late February.

With energy and banking sectors leading gains.

The benchmark index has gained nearly 40% from its March lows, helped by a flood of stimulus measures.

Travel stocks were a big winner on Monday.

Holiday firm TUI saw an 8 percent rise.

While easyJet was up over 5 percent.

But gains remain capped as investors weigh risks of rising infections against hopes of a vaccine supporting a recovery.

Robert Halver is head of capital markets at Baader Bank:

"On the one hand, there are the lockdown restrictions, which will be extended, but also the hope for a vaccine. On the other hand, the economy is in hibernation but Spring is supposedly going to be particularly beautiful. Markets are torn between the two."

On Monday AstraZeneca said its COVID-19 vaccine, developed along with the University of Oxford, could be around 90% effective under one dosing regimen.

The company's shares however slipped 2 percent.

Traders attributed the drop to its vaccine showing lower success than rivals such as Pfizer.

Regional stocks were also buoyed by hopes of a swifter economic recovery, after the British government said it was working to ease restrictions over Christmas.

That helped UK's FTSE 100 index gain 0.3%, along with hopes of a post Brexit-trade deal with the European Union.
