Investing.com - European markets opened higher to kick off trading in the shortened last week of the year.

At 03:10 ET (08:10 GMT), the DAX was up 0.8%, the CAC 40 was up 1.05%, and the Euro Stoxx 50 was up 0.94%.

The big global news came out of China, as officials announced that quarantine requirements for inbound travelers to the country will be dropped on January 8th. The China reopening theme may be the excuse to nudge markets higher. Asian markets closed higher on the day, with the Nikkei 225 rising 0.16% and the Shanghai Composite closing up 1%.

The EUR/USD was also up 0.1% at 03:15 ET (08:15 GMT), as the US Dollar Index dipped 0.2%, a potential sign of a risk-on Santa rally to close the year.

Befitting the holiday schedule, there is not much on the economic calendar today, with highlights including the Case-Shiller housing index, U.S. retail inventories, and French bond auctions.

Top Euro Stoxx 50 movers included LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE (EPA:LVMH) (+2%), Airbus Group SE (EPA:AIR) (+1.7%), TotalEnergies SE (EPA:TTEF) (+1.5%), Eni SpA (BIT:ENI) (+1.4%), and BASF SE (ETR:BASFN) (+1.3%). Very few major European stocks were down, with Grifols SA (BME:GRLS) being the most notable decliner, down 2%.

In commodity markets, Crude Oil WTI Futures traded down 0.1% and Brent Oil Futures dropped 0.15%. Gold Futures continued its strong year-end momentum, trading 0.65% higher.

We encourage you to use comments to engage with users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind: 

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.
  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
  • Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
  • Don’t Monopolize the Conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also believe strongly in giving everyone a chance to air their thoughts. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
