UK and European stocks closed higher as hopes for a coronavirus vaccine were further boosted by positive news from Moderna.

The pound and the euro gained from signs that Britain and the European Union could make progress negotiating a post-Brexit trade deal.

Oil prices climbed as hopes that OPEC+ will hold current output curbs offset concerns about weaker fuel demand and higher production from Libya.

Gold pared losses as investors weighed immediate concerns over rising coronavirus cases and bets on further economic support even as Moderna became the second drugmaker to declare effective COVID-19 vaccine test results.

In corporate news, investors cheered news that a Covid-19 vaccine by Moderna has been shown to be 95% effective. IAG, Rolls-Royce, Melrose, Whitbread and InterContinental all rallied on the news.
