US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's spokeswomen, Drew Hammill has tweeted details of the call between Pelosi and the Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
The Speaker & Secretary Mnuchin spoke today at 2:30 pm for 48 minutes. Today's conversation brings us closer to being able to put pen to paper to write legislation. With the exchange of legislative language, we are better prepared to reach compromise on several priorities. (1/3)— Drew Hammill (@Drew_Hammill) October 21, 2020
Differences continue to be narrowed on health priorities, including language providing a national strategic testing and contract tracing plan, but more work needs to be done to ensure that schools are the safest places in America for children to learn.

Stocks may soon grow tired of hearing 'tomorrow' every day, as it never seems to arrive.
However, it is inevitable that a stimulus package will be made available but the uncertainty of the US elections and the possibility of a contested outcome, thus the delay in a package is what will concern investors the most.
Meanwhile, the US indexes ended lower on the day as stimulus hopes faded into the close, assisting the greenback to come off its lows.
