Stocks pared losses as traders awaited news on negotiations over a fresh round of stimulus amid a resurgence in coronavirus cases around the globe. The dollar climbed.

The S&P 500 came off session lows as banks rebounded from a two-day selloff and energy shares rallied. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told Democrats that a Covid-19 relief package won’t wait until January as she was scheduled to have another call with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, while President Donald Trump said he’d go over $1.8 trillion in stimulus. Equities slumped earlier in the day as Europe’s biggest cities clamped down to curb the virus, adding to concern that further restrictions could cause more damage to the global economy.
