MACRO NEWS: In testimony before a Congressional panel, newly appointed Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said she expected "a great deal of continuity" in the central bank's policies as she begins her tenure.

COMPANY NEWS: Cable majors Comcast (CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (TWC), agreed to merge in a $45.2 billion deal all-stock deal.
