Yellen on Capitol Hill, Apple in Iran and Trump's bank account

U.S. equities (^DJI, ^GSPC, ^IXIC) are trading more or less flat today as investors wait for the next catalyst either up or down.

Here are some of the other stories Yahoo Finance is watching today.

Yellen on the Hill
Janet Yellen is on Capitol Hill for her semi-annual Congressional grilling. In her opening statement, the Fed Chair said:

If the economy evolves as we expect, economic conditions likely would make it appropriate at some point this year to raise the federal funds rate target, thereby beginning to normalize the stance of monetary policy.

The tension rose in the House Financial Services Committee hearing when Chairman Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Tex) and Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wis) both took to questioning Yellen about ignoring a subpoena related to a congressional leak probe.

Apple in Iran
In a move that would further cement its global dominance in the tech marketplace, Apple (AAPL) has been in touch with Iranian distributors in hopes of getting its gadgets in the hands of everyday citizens there, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

Donald Trump's bank account
Donald Trump's presidential campaign is expected to disclose more details about the candidate's personal wealth today. When he announced his intention to run Trump estimated his net worth somewhere around nine billion dollars. If that number holds true it would make him the richest man ever to seek the highest office in the land.
