Overnight, Pfizer and BioNTech announced that its COVID-19 vaccine was 90 per cent effective, setting it up for an emergency rollout.

How does a potentially imminent COVID-19 vaccine impact markets?

Wall Street rallied to record intra-day highs.

US gun stocks tumbled. Global oil prices surged.

Gold plunged. Bitcoin? Staying steady(ish).

Buy now, pay later (BNPL) and e-commerce stocks were belted as banks boomed.

Travel stocks flew. Online brokers crashed.

It’s been a wild ride.

The Aussie market hit eight-month highs in early trade Wednesday. The benchmark ASX200 Index is currently up 103.60 p[oints — or 6,402.40.
