I think this week we are officially “on pause” with our trade war while negotiations continue. Though I think the last update was that President Trump was not happy with how they are going.

The Hang Seng Index is only up 2% this year while the Shanghai Comp is down 5%. Meanwhile, here in the U.S., the S&P 500 (SPY) is only up 2% while the Nasdaq (QQQ) has gained 8%. It is tempting to not get involved in equities with so much uncertainty. ...
Here’s a detailed look at how the irreverent Turtleboy has offended Facebook’s (FB) users and management, or not, and why Facebook keeps banning the blog. This huge company owns 40% of “Fortnite’s” developer and is still growing very quickly.
The stock market has tossed and turned this week in reaction to changes in the negotiations with North Korea and the looming threat of trade wars, but overall, it continues to act positive.

NEW YORK, NY - MAY 21: Traders and financial professionals work ahead of the closing bell on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), May 21, 2018 in New York City.

Twitter (TWTR) users could sooner or later be able to exchange encrypted direct messages on the platform, according to media reports citing clues in Twitter’s Android application code.

Google also crafted a powerful business model, based on the clicks of simple text ads.
