Mr. Biden’s economic-recovery plan will likely drive the benchmark US stock market indexes, especially the techs and small-caps, North marking continuous record highs along the way.
Fed Chairman Powell says, and this is current, that the Fed can cushion/reverse any decline with bond-buying that pumps more liquidity into financial markets, and is standing by to do so.
There is a long standing Wall Street adage that warns, “Never fade the Fed.”
The Trump economy is revving, and there is really nothing Mr. Biden can do to hobble it for some time to come. So as long as the momentum is strong and the trend is North, “take what the market gives” and hedge the risk.

American capitalism is a spectacular success and the American consumer is very resilient.
Have a healthy weekend, Keep the Faith!
