USD extended its loss to a seven-week low on Wednesday after President Trump boosted hopes for a large fiscal stimulus package. The White House and Democrats in the U.S. Congress moved closer to agreement on a new coronavirus-related relief package on Tuesday as Trump said he was willing to accept a large aid bill despite opposition within his own Republican Party. With just two weeks until the US presidential election, Trump signaled a willingness to go along with more than $2.2 trillion in new relief, a figure Democrats have been pushing for months. 10/21/2020 - 05:47AM (RTTNews)

EU Brexit negotiators expect to go to London to resume full trade talks with UK as early as Thursday. There was no immediate official confirmation that this was the case. The two chief negotiators - the EU’s Michel Barnier and Britain’s David Frost - had been due to discuss the issue by telephone. UK said earlier on Wednesday it had noted with interest Barnier’s latest comments that had stalled the troubled negotiations again this week. Following Brexit last January, Britain’s current EU trading terms expire in 10 weeks and unfettered commerce will end without a new treaty. Keen to avoid any blame, the EU is ready to negotiate until mid-November but must then ratify any deal in the European Parliament before time is up. 10/21/2020 - 02:50AM (RTTNews)

UK CPI accelerated in September as the end of the government's food discount scheme boosted restaurant and café prices, official data showed Wednesday. Inflation rose to 0.5% from a near five-year low of 0.2% in August. Nonetheless, inflation was far below the BoE’s target of 2%. Transport costs, and restaurant and café prices, following the end of the Eat Out to Help Out scheme, made the largest upward contributions. MoM CPI advanced 0.4%, offsetting a 0.4% fall in the previous month. Core inflation increased to 1.3% from 0.9% a month ago. 10/21/2020 - 03:19AM (RTTNews)
