The Ibex deflates in its attack at 8,200 points | Markets

The markets start the session higher, confident that, once and for all, the United States will be able to pass a fiscal stimulus plan that has been bogged down in Congress since the summer. Thus, the Stock Market faces the final stretch of the year with a positive tone: Tomorrow, Friday, is the expiration of options and futures corresponding to December 2020, so that, for the purposes of institutional investors, the exercise can be given, almost, by closed.

The opening of the Ibex has been bullish, with a gain of 0.32% at 8,165 points in the first change, and the session has dawned calm. Only a few stocks are up more than 1%, and only Arcelor was up more than 2% at the open. Repsol and the banks posted gains of around 1%, while IAG and Meliá also celebrate the foreseeable Brexit agreement.

In the United States, negotiations continue, given that the plan needs the green light of both the Senate (Republican) and the House of Representatives, under Democratic control. Mitch McConell, leader of the Republican Senate majority, has assured that “I am optimistic, we will be able to reach an understanding soon.” The plan presented by a group of legislators amounts to 900,000 million dollars, and is negotiated hand in hand with the new spending ceiling, which must be approved between today and tomorrow to avoid the closure of the federal government.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, who guaranteed that he will continue to pump money into the economy, also indicated yesterday the urgent need for a fiscal plan as the pandemic rages in the country. Yesterday the record for deaths in one day was broken, with more than 3,700 victims in 24 hours. Vaccination is already underway in the country.

In Europe, eyes are on the Brexit negotiations, which have provided another reason for optimism (or, at least, have driven pessimism away) from stockbrokers. The talks are entering a decisive phase, having reached a compromise on the thorniest issue, that of a fair competitive framework, but with differences in weight, that is, in the access of European ships to British waters. The pound, however, rises, and Boris Johnson recalled that Parliament may meet during Christmas.

The euro, meanwhile, continues to hit highs in two years, encouraged by the general good mood of the market: during the most difficult months of the pandemic, investors have taken refuge in the dollar. It is at $ 1,223 per euro. Oil, a thermometer of the economic outlook, is at its highest since March, above $ 51.

In the debt market, the reluctance of the Fed to extend bond purchases and the relative optimism of the Stock Exchanges cause long-term interest rate hikes. The 10-year US bond has three rises, as does the debt of Spain or Germany. The 10-year Spanish bond is trading at 0.03%,


Turkey awaits trial of perpetrators of murder of Iranian scientist

Turkey condemns the murder of the Iranian scientist Fajrizade and expresses its desire that those responsible for this act of terrorism be brought to justice.

“Turkey opposes all forms of terrorism, regardless of who perpetrates it and who is the target. We hope that those responsible will be identified and brought to justice “said the Turkish Foreign Ministry.

In a statement issued on Saturday, the Turkish Foreign Ministry condemned the terrorist attack that caused the “vile” assassination of prominent Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fajrizade on Friday near Tehran, the Persian capital.

The note also highlights that Ankara opposes any attempt to disturb the peace and tranquility in the West Asian region.

For his part, the president of the Turkish Parliament, Mustafa Sentop, published a message on Twitter, where he condemned the attack against the prominent Persian physicist, highlighting that “those who executed him are terrorists.”

The Iranian authorities have denounced that Fajrizade’s assassination was orchestrated by the US intelligence services and the Israeli regime, and have called on the international community, in particular the European Union (EU), to end the double standards and condemn the act of violence in question.

The Islamic Republic has not only promised a “harsh revenge” to the authors of the attack, but has assured that it will promote their scientific development, independence and self-sufficiency to thwart enemy plots.

In fact, several experts are of the opinion that the targeted killings of Iranian scientists respond to the concern of the US and Israel about Iran’s technological development.

What’s more, the outgoing US president, Donald Trump, has echoed Fajrizade’s assassination on his Twitter account, a fact that, according to Israeli media, shows the probability that “it was a joint US operation. and Israel ”.

Greece attacks Berlin for rejecting the arms embargo on Turkey – ANHA | HAWARNEWS

In an interview with the Politico American newspaper, Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias said that Germany is not responding to its leadership role in the European Union when it rejects Athens’ calls for an embargo on arms shipments to Turkey.

Dendias said: “To set a good example, I cannot understand Germany’s reluctance to use the enormous power of its economy to link states to international law.”

Dendias added: “I understand the economic aspect in Germany, but I am sure that the latter also understands the tremendous contradiction in providing arms to a country that threatens peace and stability in two countries of the European Union. This is really the definition of contradiction”.

He added that he does not understand why Greece raised the matter in Berlin rather than Germany realizing on its own, that this does not correspond to its role in Europe.

The chancellor pointed out that if the leaders of the European Union do the same as they did at the October summit, that means they have not learned their lesson and it will be a wrong signal to be sent from Europe to all the countries of the world.

The Foreign Minister stated that he looks forward to working with the next US administration, as President-elect Joe Biden and new Secretary of State Anthony Blinken are well acquainted with the region and the Greek-Turkish issues.

He said: “I think the region needs the presence of the United States, especially its military presence, in a way that compensates for the lack of a European military presence in the region.”



Syrian army shoots down Turkish aggressor drone in Raqqa

The Syrian Army has shot down a Turkish drone while attempting to attack Syrian positions in the northern field of Al-Raqa (north).

As the portal has announced Al Masdar NewsCiting a field source in Hama governorate, the confrontation occurred on Tuesday when the attacking aircraft attempted to attack the positions of Syrian troops.

However, the Levantine country’s Army, together with its Russian counterparts, managed to shoot down the Turkish drone as it headed towards the positions of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) near the city of Ain Isa, in the north of the city of Al -Raqa.

The incident came shortly after a fierce firefight between Kurdish forces, supported by the United States, and the Turkish Army in the Ain Isa camp.

While the Syrian Army has tried to stay out of these clashes, the Turkish side and its militant allies continually attack their positions, often causing damage to their fortifications east of the Euphrates.

The Syrian authorities have repeatedly denounced Turkey’s military presence in their country and consider both the Turkish military intervention and the US military support to insurgents in their territory as ‘unacceptable’, and reiterate that the unofficial presence of Foreign force in the country is an obstacle to peace and the struggle of the Arab country and its allies against the scourge of terrorism.

The Syrian Government has sent large amounts of military forces and armaments to the main cities on the border with Turkey (in the north), including Kobani, Al-Raqa, and Manbiy, to prevent the advance of the Turkish Armed Forces. President Bashar al-Assad has in turn promised that Damascus will use “all legitimate means” at its disposal to respond to Turkey’s aggression.

Macron attacks Russia and Turkey for fueling anti-French sentiment – ANHA | HAWARNEWS

“There is a strategy that is being followed, and it is sometimes implemented by African leaders, but mainly foreign powers like Russia and Turkey, playing on post-colonial resentment,” Macron said in an interview published by “John Africa” ​​magazine.

He added: “We must not be naive. Many of those who speak out and take videos, and those in the French-speaking media are being bribed from Russia or Turkey.”

Macron also highlighted the total opposition of France, which has a military presence on the coast, to any negotiations with extremists, an issue that is being discussed in the region, especially in Mali.



OSDH: Turkey establishes new military base in northern Syria

Despite rejections from Syria, Turkey has begun to establish a military base in Al-Raqa province, located in the north of Syrian territory, reports the OSDH.

As the opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (OSDH) announced on Thursday, Turkish troops have begun the establishment of a new military installation in the town of Ain Isa, in the north of Al-Raqa.

Units in Turkey have already moved logistics and construction teams to erect such a base about two kilometers from the town of Ain Isa, which is under the control of the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the Syrian military, OSDH added, citing local sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

According to the agency, whose headquarters is in London (capital of the United Kingdom), the construction of this facility occurs amid the increase in attacks by the Turkish army and its allies in that area.

In this regard, the OSDH recalled the bombing carried out on Tuesday by the artillery of the Turkish Army against the residential areas near the town of Ain Isa, indicating that during said assault at least three civilians were injured.

The Syrian Government, chaired by Bashar al-Asad, has denounced, time and again, the illegal military presence of Turkey in his country, as well as the financial, arms and logistical support that Ankara provides to terrorist groups.

Ignoring warnings and rejections from Damascus, lately the Turkish Army and its allied militias have stepped up attacks in the northern parts of Syria. It’s more, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated at the beginning of last October that his country the military operations that began in 2016 in the north of the Arab country will not cease.



Camp Nou was one of targets of 2017 Barcelona terror attacks

Upd. at 22:31


An inquiry into the attack confirmed on Tuesday that Barça’s famous stadium was a possible target on the day Barça hosted Real Betis in La Liga, along with the Sagrada Familia in the city and the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Local police in Barcelona found that Mohamed Houli and Driss Oukabir, plus a supposed collaborator, Said Ben Iazza, were involved with preparing the attacks as part of a terrorist cell.

The three are facing prison time of between eight and 41 years for their role in the attacks which were carried out in Barcelona and also Cambrils on the same day. Covering both attacks, 16 lives were lost.

At least five dead and several seriously injured in the Vienna attacks

VIENNA, Nov 3 (Reuters) – Gunmen opened fire at six different locations in central Vienna on Monday night, including the capital’s main synagogue, killing at least five people and seriously wounding several in what Austria called a “repulsive terrorist attack.”

According to several witnesses, the attackers, armed with automatic rifles, fired in bars and restaurants at the crowd, which was taking advantage of the last night before a national curfew was applied due to COVID-19. The police shot down one of the assailants.

The agents also closed a large part of Vienna’s historic center, urging people in the area to take refuge where possible. Many did so in bars and hotels, while public transport in the area interrupted its activity.

“It is the most difficult day for Austria in many years. We are facing a terrorist attack whose severity, thank God, we have not lived in the country in many years, ”Interior Minister Karl Nehammer said at a press conference.

So far the Austrian capital has been spared the kind of deadly attacks that have hit Paris, London, Berlin, and Brussels, among others, in recent years. Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said the “repulsive” act was “definitely a terrorist attack.”

Oskar Deutsch, a leader of the Vienna Jewish community, which has offices next to the synagogue where one of the attacks occurred, said on Twitter that it was unclear whether the temple or the offices were the target.

Rabbi Schlomo Hofmeister, who lives in the area where the synagogue is located, told London’s LBC broadcaster: different bars and pubs ”.

Border controls were tightened, according to the Interior Ministry, and children will not have to go to school on Tuesday. Although people were urged to stay indoors, Vienna Mayor Michael Ludwig told ORF broadcaster that the city would function normally on Tuesday, albeit with a greater police presence.


“According to what we currently know, at least one of the assailants is still on the run,” Nehammer said.

“We have assembled several units of special forces that are searching for suspected terrorists,” added the minister, adding that the search was not limited only to Vienna.

Kurz said the army will protect the capital so that the police can focus on counterterrorism operations. “(The attackers) were very well equipped with automatic weapons” and had “prepared professionally,” said the chancellor.

Several videos circulated on social media of an armed man running down a cobbled street while shooting and screaming. In one of the cuts, the assailant opens fire on a person in a bar located near the synagogue. Reuters could not immediately verify the videos.

In 1981, two people were killed and 18 wounded during an attack by two Palestinians on the same Vienna synagogue. In 1985, a Palestinian extremist group killed three civilians in an attack at the airport.

Disney + test: for whom is the Disney subscription worthwhile? Program overview

ISomewhere in the deep shallows of Twitter it emerged at some point, this rumor. Corona, that was spread by Disney! So that everyone stays at home, without employment and greedy for entertainment, when the new Disney + streaming offer starts. Hashtag: conspiracy theory, the most absurd kind.

In fact, in the weeks leading up to its streaming service in Germany, Disney gradually closed all of its amusement parks worldwide. The Disney Cruise Line stopped their cruises. The hotels, the shops worldwide, everything closed. That has, of course, never happened before, after September 11, 2001, after the assassination attempt on John F. Kennedy, Disneyland was once closed for a day, not even remotely comparable to the dimensions in March 2020. It would be a pretty big price, to promote a streaming platform – for which you can’t even produce more content because filming for Disney projects has been interrupted.

But yes, the timing for the launch of Disney + at least seemed kind of happy. A little happy coincidence in the rather unhappy times – which should at least comfort many Disney fans a little. About the fact that for several weeks there was not a single Disney refuge in the world, not a single “happy place”, as the company itself likes to call its parks.

Disney Plus: Disney magic against corona frustration

Then it has to be your own laptop or TV that should provide a little distraction and Disney magic. But that doesn’t work entirely without Corona problems either, the bandwidth of the streams was reduced right at the start on March 24th in order not to overload the network. The price is moderate, the annual subscription costs 69.99 euros, and those who want to subscribe flexibly on a monthly basis pay 6.99 euros. Theoretically, four people can currently share the password with four devices; the first seven days can be tested free of charge. More than 500 films and 350 series, the offer is slightly different depending on the country.

Is the Disney + program worth it?

And the question about the offer is certainly the most important one in the end: Is Disney Plus worth it? Is it just for Disney fans? What are the highlights and insider tips?

Classic on Disney +

They are of course all gathered: “The Lion King”, “Cinderella”, “Aladdin”, “Beauty and the Beast”, “Jungle Book” – the cartoon and, where available, the real version. Small point of criticism from many German fans: “Arielle” is only included in the newly dubbed version from 1998, here the voice actors, song texts and some dialogues have been changed compared to the 1989 version.

The very first appearance of Mickey Mouse in “Steamboat Willie” is also available and super classics like “Pinocchio” (which, strangely enough, runs under the title “The Living Doll”), “Lady and the Tramp”, “Bambi”, “Alice in Wonderland” or “101 Dalmatians”. Some of these older titles have been restored so that they can be viewed in good quality in high resolution. And when one speaks of classics, one should also mention that series such as “Hannah Montana”, but also more than 600 episodes of the “Simpsons” are available.

Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar

Disney is not just cartoons – it has long been ensured that all target groups can be captured somewhere, (almost) the entire Marvel and Star Wars universe as well as the spin-off series “The Mandalorian” is available on Disney + . A few films are currently being held back, the tension (and new customer acquisition) has to last a little longer. Of course, the Pixar films are also at the start, from “Finding Nemo” to “Above”.

An as yet unnamed Obi Wan Kenobi show is slated to start in 2021.

In addition, some films have been produced especially for Disney +, including “Togo” with Willem Dafoe, the film adaptation of the novel “Stargirl” and “Timmy Flop”.


Some films and series are available with bonus content – that is, slip of the tongue, cut-out scenes or director’s comments.

Insider tips: These films and series will surprise you

What you might not have expected: Because Disney has now taken over Fox, films like “Mrs. Doubtfire ”,“ Ice Age ”,“ Sister Act ”or“ Avatar ”included. Then you can also find small, almost forgotten series like “Darkwing Duck” – and for wedding lovers: “Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings”! The show accompanies couples at their really spectacular and fascinating Disney weddings in Disneyland or on one of the Disney ships – since all of this is currently out of reach, maybe an alternative.

And: “The Imagineering Story”. This little documentary series explains how and by whom the theme parks and rides are developed and offers a look behind the scenes – naturally controlled by Disney – that has never been seen before. What one would then wish for in 2021: Documentation about the standstill.
