Daily Default Dashboard: Markets like the Republicans’ offer

The news that Republicans will propose a six-week extension of the debt ceiling, pushing the debt standoff to Nov. 22, led to a big lowering of tensions in markets Thursday.

That shows up on the Daily Default Dashboard as a reversal of the heightened tensions earlier in the week.
