EUR/USD Price Reverses Direction on the US Stimulus Package Updates

Safe-havens rallied on the news coming from Washington while equities and risk-related currencies retreated. What moves markets today?

Equities

On Tuesday President Trump made a U-turn and instructed its administration to stop negotiating until after the elections and he promised that after “his victory” he would pass a major stimulus bill that focused on hardworking Americans and small businesses. However, Trump urged the US Congress to approve a $25 billion bailout to aviation companies. Meanwhile, the Fed Chair Powell warned that failure to secure financial aid would lead to a weak economic recovery and create unnecessary hardships.

These updates negatively affected investor’s sentiment sending global stock markets lower and safe havens higher.
