Watch live: Treasury Secretary Yellen testifies before Congress on the economic recovery

[The stream is slated to start at 11 am ET. Please refresh the page if you do not see a player above at that time.]

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is scheduled to appear before lawmakers on Thursday to offer an update on the economic recovery and detail her department's efforts to help workers and households after the Covid-19 pandemic.

Formerly the chair of the Federal Reserve, Yellen is one of President Joe Biden's chief economic advisors and a key player in orchestrating hundreds of billions of dollars of coronavirus relief aid appropriated by Congress over the past several months.

Her testimony before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Financial Services and House General Government Committee on Appropriations included praise for Biden's $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan.

She'll also likely offer support for legislation currently under consideration including the infrastructure-based American Jobs Plan and the worker-and-household bill known as the American Families Plan.

Yellen raised eyebrows on Wednesday for failing to appear before the House Small Business Committee, as required by law.

Oil Futures Settle Slightly Higher

Crude oil futures settled marginally up on Tuesday with traders closely following the ongoing negotiations with regard to Iran nuclear deal.

Traders looked to be weighing the likely impact a prospective deal that could result in the U.S. lifting sanctions on Iran might make on global crude supply.

West Texas Intermediate Crude oil futures for July edged up $0.02 to settle at $66.07 a barrel.

Brent crude futures were down $0.10 or 0.15% at 68.27 a barrel a little while ago.

Iran and the U.N. nuclear watchdog said on Monday that they are extending a recently expired monitoring agreement by a month, giving negotiators in Vienna time to revive the nuclear deal from which the U.S. withdrew in 2018.

Talks between Iran and world powers will continue in Vienna this week to resolve outstanding issues on a nuclear accord.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Monday the U.S. has no other option than to lift all sanctions on Iran, which were imposed under former U.S. President Donald Trump.
