This week, investors will pay close attention to the latest developments in the US epidemic relief plan and the US election. Currently, former US Vice President Biden is still ahead of US President Trump in national opinion polls, but the gap between the two has narrowed slightly recently.
U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that the House of Representatives may pass an epidemic relief plan next week, but it is still difficult to reach an agreement with the White House, and the Republican-led Senate may be elected on November 3 No action will be taken before the date.
However, Pelosi and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows in an interview with CNN successively on Sunday accused each other of “changing the stimulus legislation”, reflecting why US lawmakers are so pessimistic about the agreement reached before the election .
