While it might take a while before the new government is formed, investors were relieved that hard-left Linke party fell below the 5% threshold needed to enter parliament.

Oil & gas stocks jumped 1.2% as Brent futures headed for $80 per barrel amid supply concerns as parts of the world saw demand pick up with the easing of pandemic conditions.
