Debt ceiling reaches tentative deal
As mentioned, Biden confirmed reaching a budget deal with Speaker McCarthy. Meantime, the agreement awaits more discussions before going to the U.S. House & Senate.
The deal includes increasing the fed government’s $31.4T debt ceiling, halting a months-long standoff. Moreover, it involves capping spending and increasing the debt limit for two years.

The day ahead
It remains a somewhat quiet Sunday as markets will close tomorrow due to Monday’s Memorial Day. With no economic signals from the United States, the latest updates of the U.S. preventing a calamitous default will offer support on the day ahead.
