US markets closed in the green over continued talks between Congress and the White House over stimulus, with the White House coming closer to the $2.2 trillion mark, but is a deal likely with so little time left before the polls? We also get into pre-election trading patterns and currency impacts, measures the PBOC could take to help achieve Beijing’s ambitions for economic growth, oil prices and production, and actions the Reserve Bank of Australia could take interest rates at their next meeting.
