Positive news about the beginning of the transfer of power to President-elect of the United States Joe Biden, as well as news of vaccines and a possible candidate for the post of US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, have brought optimism to financial markets, but risks , fear, and uncertainty remain.
The last alarm signal from the United States was the news that the current administration decided to make life difficult for Joe Biden in the form of deprivation of his funds. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced the transfer of $455 billion from the stabilization fund to the general fund. In simple terms, the new administration will now need congressional approval in order to manage these funds.
Not the best signal for investors who may face a delay or lack of cash injections into the economy.

If something dramatic in terms of information flow does not happen before the release of Western traders, then positive statistics for the United States may direct the quote towards 1.1810.
