Those in Congress keep telling the world that they just finalizing things, dotting the i and crossing the t, and yet no plan. Lawmakers may move to pass another short-term funding measure to keep the government running while they go through the process of writing a relief package and pushing it through both chambers of Congress. Even that strategy may not prevent a shutdown. Any one senator could delay swift passage of a temporary spending measure known as a continuing resolution. It seems they are more concerned with who will receive their vaccine and when.
Markets are trading a bit lower tired of the rhetoric and adjusting their positions before year end.
Canadian dollar is a bit weaker, following suit to the equities, expect a narrow range.
