Policymakers at the European Central Bank on Monday. 29th November 2021 tried to reassure investors frighten by the latest variant of the Covid-19 virus, arguing that the eurozone economy has learned to cope with waves of the outbreak.
According to the WHO, the risk of global transmission of the Omicron variant is “very high” and is threatening economic recovery and could jeopardize plans by the ECB and other global central banks to withdraw emergency support that has been in place for nearly two years.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster RAI on Sunday evening, Lagarde said, “People are obviously worried about the economic recovery in 2022, but I think we have learned a lot, we now know our enemy and we know what to do. We are all better equipped to deal with the risk of a fifth wave of the epidemic or a variant of Omicron.”

GBP Intraday Trend Analysis

2. Precious Metals Market Insight
Gold prices fell slightly yesterday. As the dollar and U.S. stocks strengthened and risk sentiment rebounded, the market is weighing how severe the impact of the Omicron variant of the virus would be on the economy.
However, the Omicron strain could lead to a longer duration of high inflation, which is expected to give support to gold prices. The focus during the day will be on the Consumer Confidence Index of the Conference Board, in addition to the Chicago PMI and speeches by Federal Reserve officials.
