The Week Ahead: 27th – 31st December 2021

Overview for the Week Ahead

The year 2021 is drawing to a close, and there are no major earnings or events this week. 

As investors and analysts look forward to 2022, there is an overcast due to the surge of Covid-19 once again.

Oil edged lower amid nervousness around the rapid spread of the omicron virus variant and strength in the dollar.

The volume of daily U.S. infections with omicron has now surpassed those in the delta wave, while China posted the highest number of cases since January.

Britain reported another day of record Covid-19 cases on Friday 24th December, with new estimates showing swathes of London’s population are carrying the virus, underlining the relentless advance of the Omicron variant.

Omicron’s rapid spread has driven a surge in cases over the last seven days, especially in the capital.

Around 1 in 20 Londoners likely had Covid-19 on Dec. 16 and early estimates – which could yet be revised – suggest this may have risen to 1 in 10 on Sunday, models from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) showed on Friday.

Many industries and transport networks are struggling with staff shortages as sick workers self-isolate, while hospitals in Britain have warned of the risk of an impact on patient safety.
