Jeff shares his views on regional markets performance and attributes the sea of green to optimism over :
- The approval of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine
- Passing of the Biden Stimulus package
He comments on the PMI numbers across the reason and is not worried out the numbers that have come in below expectations. Jeff also feels that oil prices will remain around the USD $65 mark which he believes that OPEC+ would be comfortable at. Finally, he gives us a heads up on key data and events to look out for this week.
