Tech Sector Charge!

The US equities markets rose sharply today, with the tech sector leading the charge. Overall, the Nasdaq was up over 1.50% towards the end of the session, and tech sector etfs rose about the same. Of particular note was Twitter, which was up over 5.00% towards the end of the session off of positive comments from analysts. Meanwhile, the VIX was down over 12% as traders seemed to acclimate to the recent tariffs placed by the Trump Administration on Canada, Mexico, China and the European Union. However, it is far too early to assume that the coast is clear. Here’s what to expect.
