Today, gold is at a moderate decrease (-0.6%) amid mixed dynamics of stock indexes.
In the morning, the market was focused on news from the United States, where the Senate approved a bill to allocate 2 trillion dollars to stimulate the economy. Donald Trump stated his readiness to sign this document immediately. Traders reacted fairly calmly to this news due to reports of COVID-19 cases exceeding 400 thousand people globally, and the number of deaths approaching 20 thousand.

According to forecasts for the week, the number of applications will increase by 1000 thousand, against 281 thousand a week earlier.
