Will there be a relief package announced today?
The House Speaker Pelosi has announced that she will delay her weekly press conference to 2 PM ET today. Speculation is that perhaps there will be a relief deal by then.
The US government will run out today. If there is not a relief deal, there would need to be another stopgap short-term funding bill passed that would keep the government open. The clock is ticking.
US stocks have ticked up.
The Dow is near unchanged. The S&P and NASDAQ index are now trading higher.
- Dow, -9 points
- S&P index, +5 points
- Nasdaq, +30 points
