World markets are showing a mostly positive trend

Asian markets closed with mixed results, with growth in Europe.

Global markets on Thursday showed mostly positive dynamics, despite the increase in the number of cases of COVID-19 infection and tensions between the US and China.

Asian markets ended trading with mixed results, with Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index closing up 0.8 percent and the Shanghai Composite down 0.2 percent.

Sydney’s S&P / ASX index rose 0.3 percent, Seoul’s KOSPI fell 0.5 percent, Taiwan’s TSEC lost 0.4 percent, and Mumbai’s Sensex added 0.7 percent.
The Tokyo stock exchange is closed on Thursday and Friday due to a national holiday.

In Europe, by mid-trading, the picture was much more positive: London’s FTSE index rose 0.5 percent, Paris’s CAC-40 rose 0.4 percent, and Frankfurt’s DAX rose 0.5 percent.

The situation in the oil markets is still tricky. US crude oil fell 0.2 percent to $ 41.80 a barrel, while benchmark Brent also lost 0.2 percent and is trading at $ 44.19 a barrel.

Futures for the US Dow Jones, S&P 500 and NASDAQ indexes are showing growth ahead of the opening of trading on Wall Street.
