News of successful Covid-19 vaccine trials have sent shares soaring and while the FTSE 100 has drifted off its highs, it is up 14 per cent in November.
The US stock market has also been boosted by positive vaccine news and the election seemingly delivering a result, despite the disputing of it by incumbent President Trump.
