There has been, after months of back and forth and a lot of misinformation and disinformation being spread about the integrity of the Presidential election, a peaceful transfer of power. 

President Joe Biden has become the 46th President of the United States.

And with that comes the questions of, "what's next?" for the markets.

“Economists don’t always agree, but I think there is a consensus now: Without further action, we risk a longer, more painful recession now -and long-term scarring of the economy later,” Yellen said Tuesday in her prepared remarks. “Over the next few months, we are going to need more aid to distribute the vaccine; to reopen schools; to help states keep firefighters and teachers on the job.”
