TOKYO / SHANGHAI (Dow Jones) – After a good week so far, the equity markets in East Asia and Australia are showing inconsistent midweek. While the Wall Street templates initially caused premiums, where the most important indices had posted significant gains and the Dow Jones index rose above the 30,000 mark for the first time, the concerns of the current corona wave are now coming back into focus. Profit-taking is now evident in the markets.

After US President Donald Trump has cleared the way for the handover of official business to the election winner Joe Biden, a major element of uncertainty is disappearing in the markets. But the ongoing corona pandemic is not over yet, even if the availability of vaccines is imminent.
