(Reuters) World stocks hovered near record highs on Wednesday when Britain became the first country in the world to approve the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for use, saying it would start rolling it out early next week. 

The dollar was stuck at 2-1/2 year lows against the euro and an index of major currencies, as investors sought out the higher risk currencies that had fallen during the earlier stages of the pandemic.
