It is up 3.07% driven by progress in its trial with Aplidin against the coronavirus. The rises this Friday have not been enough to save the week, in the last 5 days it has fallen by 1.46% and has lost 6,900 points. The rest of the squares of the Old Continent have done somewhat better than the selective Spanish, with increases between 1% and 2%. The revaluations are maintained despite the last ordeal of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Johnson has ruled out continuing to negotiate a trade treaty with the European Union (EU) to regulate relations between the Twenty-seven and the United Kingdom as of January 1. The ‘premier’ has followed through on his threat to end the talks if the October 15-16 summit of European leaders failed to devise a framework for both parties.

Regarding the technical aspect of the Ibex after the falls of last day, it should be noted that the decreases led him to cover the bullish gap that was left on the 5th of this month. “It is important that purchases reappear at these prices, although it must be borne in mind that a downward gap was left this Thursday and that we will not appreciate a sign of strength again as long as it remains trading below the resistance of the 7,024 points“, explains César Nuez, analyst at Bolsamanía and head of Trader Watch.
