During today's Asian trading, the US dollar declined against the euro and rose moderately against the yen on news of the agreement of the leader of the Republican majority in the US Senate, Mitch McConnell, to resume negotiations on new measures to support the us economy.

The head of the democratic minority in the US Senate, Chuck Schumer, said on Thursday that Mitch McConnell had agreed to resume negotiations with Democrats on a new package of measures to support the US economy amid the continuing increase in the incidence of coronavirus in the country. US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, in turn, in a letter to the head of the Federal reserve system Jerome Powell on Thursday said that some emergency lending programs will not be extended after December 31.

Meanwhile, European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde promised a major stimulus package from the Central Bank in December, noting that the eurozone economy is likely to be" severely affected " by the rapid rise in COVID-19 and new restrictive measures.

The yen declined against the dollar. Consumer prices in Japan in October decreased by 0.4% in annual terms after zero changes a month earlier. This is the biggest drop in more than four years. Analysts had forecast a 0.3% contraction.

The ICE index, which tracks the dynamics of the US dollar against six currencies (euro, swiss franc, yen, canadian dollar, pound sterling and swedish krona), rose 0.02%.
