    U.S. tax plan hopes lift global stocks, dollar strengthens

    World stocks advanced, bond yields rose and the U.S. dollar strengthened on Friday on increased hopes President Donald Trump could make progress on his fiscal plans after the U.S. Senate approved a budget blueprint that paves the way for tax cuts. U.S. Republican Senator Rand Paul appeared to back the administration's sweeping tax cut plan, saying he was "all in" for massive tax cuts, even as the Senate passed a key budget measure without his support one day earlier. "It's just a reaction to the thought that just maybe there might be something coming from Congress in the way of tax reform," said Paul Nolte, portfolio manager at Kingsview Asset Management in Chicago.
