LONDON (Reuters) -FX Signals | The dollar sunk to its lowest in more than two years in Asian trading on Wednesday and riskier currencies surged, as investors looked past the latest delay in U.S. fiscal stimulus and bet that global market risk appetite would increase in 2021.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday blocked a vote on increasing COVID-19 relief payments to $2,000, adding another delay to fractious negotiations over fiscal stimulus.

But market sentiment was upbeat as investors remained optimistic that a fiscal stimulus deal will be eventually reached, lessening demand for the safe-haven dollar.

The latest setback “doesn’t really matter too much for investors as they have been over the moon on the back of news that there is still plenty of fiscal support for the U.S. economy,” Naeem Aslam, chief market analyst at Avatrade, said in a note.

Analysts expect the dollar to weaken further in 2021 as U.S. President-elect Joe Biden is expected to push for even more measures to support the U.S. economy.
