Officials just reported that Vice President Mike Pence tested negative for the virus. And now Congress will do everything possible to make sure the chain of command stays healthy.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, who was in the same room with Trump for Tuesday night's debate, will also be tested today.

One trader in Tokyo said "his head was about to explode" when the news broke as prices for both Brent Crude and US crude oil slumped by 3%. The news also sent Dow futures tumbling almost 2%, while the S&P 500 also shed about 2%.
