Markets on Hold, Waiting for the US Relief Bill

The US Senate has passed the stimulus bill to help the economy, to the tune of $ 2.3 billion. $ 900 billion of that is for emergency relief, which would help the US economy further. The US economy has been holding up much better than the European economies, and this bill will stimulate it further. However, Donald Trump wasn’t too pleased with the details of that bill, which seem reasonable, although we don’t really know what they are yet.
Trump posted a video of himself on Twitter
- Wants checks increased to $ 2,000
- Wants unnecessary items removed
- the US government will shut down on December 29
- the agreed to $ 900B in emergency economic aid will be frozen
