(AP) — Global stock markets and U.S. futures are down after two days of gains and after the U.S. Senate approved a proposed $2.2 trillion virus aid package and sent it to the House of Representatives. London and Frankfurt opened down almost 2% on Thursday while Tokyo lost 4.5% on the close and Shanghai also fell. The S&P 500 futures are down about 1%. The Senate approved a plan to blunt the impact of business shutdowns due to the spread of the coronavirus after delays caused by arguments over aid to companies and laid-off workers. Investors say they need to see a decline in new virus cases before markets bottom out.
