Markets Update:

Asian stocks advanced on Wednesday as worries over a new Covid-19 strain eased and U.S. lawmakers approved a $900 billion relief package for the world’s biggest economy.

U.S. President Donald Trump said he wants an increase in the stimulus checks for individuals to $2,000 from $600, or he may veto the legislation. Chinese shares rose after a coronavirus vaccine candidate developed by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) was found to be safe and triggered immune responses in early and mid-stage trials.

Mainland Chinese stocks were higher on the day, with the Shanghai composite up 0.8% while the Shenzhen component advanced 1.0%. Shares in Australia edged higher by their close, with the S&P/ASX 200 gaining 0.7%. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index gained about 0.7%, as of its final hour of trading.

Gold nursed losses following the dollar’s Tuesday gains and was mostly steady at $1,864 an ounce. The U.S. dollar index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of its peers, was last at 90.445 following an earlier high of 90.666.
