The big news over the weekend came out as the US Senate approved the $1.9 trillion stimulus bill, placing a hint of positive outlook into the markets with hopes of global economic recovery. However with the increased stimulus threatening higher inflation risk, the Fed will be keeping a close eye on the impact of the stimulus bill to adjust their rate increase forecast.

Brent continued its rally as it broke $70 for the first time since the pandemic began following attacks on Saudi Arabian facilities.
