US turns mixed premarket, Dow halves gains

Shares on the major stock market indexes in the United States started trading mixed in the premarket on Thursday after having spent most of the morning in the green, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average losing over half of its initial gains.

The sentiment on the global markets was seemingly impacted by Omicron-strain-prompted worries, with more countries reporting their first cases of the new variant.

The Dow Jones gained 0.45%, or 160 points, at 7:51 am ET, while the Nasdaq 100 dropped 0.35% at the same time. A minute later, the S&P 500 was flat. The euro jumped 0.28% compared to the dollar at 7:54 am ET, selling for 1.13428.
