President-elect Donald Trump will become President Trump on Friday, January 20. Investors are standing by for his inauguration speech which is expected to start at roughly 12 p.m. EST. If Trump strikes a hawkish tone on trade and labels China as a currency manipulator, that could push stocks lower, according to Craig Erlam, a senior market analyst at Oanda, based in London. Aside from the inauguration, it will be a busy day for corporate earnings with General Electric (GE - Get Report) , Schlumberger (SLB - Get Report) and Procter & Gamble (PG - Get Report) releasing quarterly results before the markets open. As for economic data, the weekly Baker Hughes (BHI) rig count report is unveiled. TheStreet's Scott Gamm reports from Wall Street.
