US Senate delays decision on the coronavirus relief bill to next week
With no agreement on the final version of the US Federal coronavirus relief package in the house, the US senate closed for the week on Thursday evening. As a result, the key decision on President Trump’s ‘major’ economic response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) is now delayed until the next week.
While combining with the coronavirus updates, the risk-tone seems to have renewed pressure following the news. As a result, USD/JPY drops to 104.65 from 104.85 after the announcement.
