Markets Week Ahead: Biden the President-Elect, Now What?

Investors welcomed Biden’s victory, while eyes will be on central bank speeches in the week ahead.

Biden’s Victory

Yesterday, Joe Biden won in Pennsylvania and Nevada. The Democratic candidate rose his votes in the electoral college to 290 and became the US president-elect. Investors took a sigh of relief as this news offered some certainty, and above, the market may now enjoy fewer disturbances that came from Trump’s abrupt tweets.

Tech Stocks Rally…For Now

Major indices rallied, as the US looks on the way to have a divided Congress. This is good news for the tech companies as a Republican senate will hinder Biden from imposing higher taxes and more regulations. However, the market still focused on the undecided of two runoff elections in Georgia on January 5. A Democrat win would flip the situation in the Senate and allow Biden from passing his legislative agenda.
