U.S. Fiscal Cliff: Republican leadership softens stance on tax rates

The Fiscal Cliff negotiations are showing signs of progress after the weekend brought an offer from GOP lawmakers to allow tax rates to rise on those making more than $1mn; President Obama had been demanding that tax rates rise on those earning over $250k. “With progress remaining slow and messages mixed expect ongoing debt negotiations to well and truly steal the limelight in the lead up to Christmas,” says OzForex Research.

According to Cliff Wachtel, author of The Sensible Guide To Forex, the general fiscal cliff uncertainty is bearish: “Given the widespread consensus that there would be a deal deferring most of the potential government spending cuts and tax increases, and that most global stock indexes remain within 10% of their decade highs, it’s safe to say that markets have not priced in a failure to reach a deal.”-FXstreet.com
