The public utilities sector saw the largest gains in Europe today, with a rise of more than 1.5%, thanks to the recovery of most of the sector companies.

 

A new deal to form a new government was announced yesterday between Germany's Social Democrats, the Greens and the Free Democrats. The agreement will end the era of Chancellor Angela Merkel to Olaf Scholz in early December.

 

S&P 500 futures rose 0.2% today ahead of Wall Street's opening, after the index closed 0.25% higher yesterday.
