Janet Yellen, U.S. President-elect Joe Biden's nominee for Treasury Secretary, will urge lawmakers on Tuesday to "act big" on the next coronavirus relief package, adding that the benefits outweigh the costs of a higher debt burden. In prepared testimony at her confirmation hearing, Yellen said her task as Treasury chief will be to help Americans endure the final months of the coronavirus pandemic, and rebuilding the U.S. economy "so that it creates more prosperity for more people and ensures that American workers can compete in an increasingly competitive global economy." Biden, who will be sworn into office on Wednesday, outlined a $1.9 trillion stimulus package proposal last week, saying bold investment was needed to jump-start the economy and accelerate the distribution of vaccines to bring the virus under control.

(Bloomberg) -- Oil extended gains alongside a broader market rally as expectations of more fiscal stimulus spur near-term hopes of an economic boost.Futures in London rose as much as 2.3% on Tuesday. U.S. stocks pushed toward all-time highs as investors looked toward Treasury Secretary nominee Janet Yellen’s confirmation hearing, who will call on lawmakers to “act big” on stimulus amid low borrowing costs. A weaker U.S. dollar is also increasing the appeal for raw materials like oil that are priced in the currency.Still, oil markets face various headwinds. OPEC Secretary-General Mohammad Barkindo said that while the producer group is cautiously optimistic about a recovery this year, the rebound is fragile. Meanwhile, the International Energy Agency cut its demand outlook for the rest of the year as the pandemic continues to impede mobility.“We all know we have some troubled days ahead of here, but the consensus continues to coalesce around a bullish second half of 2021 for oil,” said John Kilduff, a partner at Again Capital LLC. “To the extent we start to ramp up in terms of demand as the vaccines get rolled out and hopefully these lockdowns end, it should dovetail into a positive narrative here.”The near-term trajectory of oil’s demand recovery has lost support recently with governments moving to tighten restrictions to curb the spread of Covid-19. In China, there are government calls for citizens not to travel over the Lunar New Year holidays, while vast swaths of Japan are in a state of emergency and several European nations are still locked down.Despite the reduction in demand estimates, global oil stockpiles stand to fall by 100 million barrels in the first quarter and the IEA sees much steeper declines in the second half of the year. That comes as traders have been rushing back to the market on expectations of a recovery in global growth later in 2021.“A swift recovery in global mobility could create a substantial oil deficit in 2021 as herd immunity takes hold across a major economies,” Bank of America Global Research said in a report. Still, “with a clear risk of new lockdowns ahead due to the new virus strains and refinery crude demand set to ebb off seasonally, we see limited upside to crude oil prices in the very near-term.”See also: Saudis’ Oil-Market Pessimism Vindicated as Demand Risks MultiplyOil’s rally has run out of steam over the past few sessions as more stay-at-home orders sap short-term demand. Weakening physical crude premiums in Asia have added pressure.Meanwhile, in recent days there have also been small pockets of supply outages. Kazakh oil production fell by about 300,000 barrels a day on Monday due to planned maintenance, while Libyan output slipped over the weekend on pipeline repairs.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg) -- A group of senators is set to switch allegiance to back Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte’s governing coalition, potentially giving him an outright majority in the upper house, according to people familiar with the talks.The lawmakers plan to abstain in a crucial confidence vote later on Tuesday, allowing the premier to get through with a simple majority, the people said, asking not to be named discussing private conversations. They could then give Conte their backing when the Senate votes on fresh deficit spending Wednesday.The group aims to give Conte enough support to stay in power, while signaling their support is not unconditional, in order to maintain their leverage, the people said. Conte could still clinch an outright majority on Tuesday, strengthening his hand. The result of the Senate confidence vote is due at about 8:30 p.m. local time.Italian bonds rallied to send 10-year bond yields down four basis points to 0.59%.The new group of supporters comes after seven senators pledged to back Conte earlier Tuesday during a debate in the upper house.
