The will-they-won't-they over a US fiscal stimulus bill has thrown markets into a state of uncertainty, with many analysts still nevertheless hopeful that we might see a deal before the November 3rd election. Vishnu Varathan, Head of Economics & Strategy at Mizuho Bank, is of the opinion that markets will remain hopeful, as both sides appear to now see the urgency of the bill.
