Links on Facebook, Cloudflare, trade and much more


The economic data schedule for the week is fairly light.  We get auto sales this afternoon. Lael Brainard is also speaking today at 4:30PM ET. Tomorrow is the usual Wednesday data on mortgages and oil. But we also get the ISM Non-Manufacturing survey and durable goods data.

I don’t think the economic data are going to drive price action in the markets over the near term. And so that gives much more airtime for events surrounding Trump and Facebook to take precedence. The links below reflect this.
