According to wires, US President Joe Biden reportedly agreed to push for a deal as soon as possible in a meeting with lawmakers. Also, the US Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden unveiled a 23.8% tax proposal focused on unrealized gains of assets held by billionaires, affecting 700 people.

In the Asian session, the Australian economic docket unveiled inflationary numbers. The RBA Trimmed Mean Consumer Price Index for the Q3 expanded by 0.7%, higher than the 0.5% estimated, while the headline Consumer Price Index rose by 0.8%, in line with foreseen and Q2 figures.

That said, the AUD/USD traders would lie on the back of the market sentiment, along with US dollar dynamics, as focus turns to the Federal Reserve meeting on November 2-3. Additionally, spending bills and fiscal policy developments would be watched for investors, as market sentiment triggers, as November kicks in, reducing maneuver time on the Democrats.
