The Ivbex and the rest of the Europeans have started the week with strong declines due to the evolution of omicron, the variant of the coronavirus that is making infections take off. The Netherlands announced this weekend a new confinement until January 14 and in Spain there is a conference of presidents called for this Wednesday before the sixth wave of the virus in which the country is immersed.
In this context, the main Spanish stock market indicator started the week with a decline of more than 2% and flirted with the minimum levels of last February. No security is listed in green on the Ibex at the beginning of the session. The stocks that were hit the most initially are IAG, Siemens Gamesa, ACS, Fluidra or Merlin. The unstoppable rise of the new variant of the coronavirus has infected the ‘parquets’ with fear and investors are opting for sales.
This climate is damaging even Rovi laboratories, the pharmaceutical company that debuts this Monday in the selective at the Viscofan stand, which also does not get rid of the Bakista trend that dominates the market.
