Disney Rallies, Twitter Faces Debt, FTX, and More

We have a shortened trading week ahead of us with Thanksgiving closing the markets on Thursday, then a half day on Friday. 

Holiday-shortened trading weeks are usually accompanied by lower trading volume, so I’m not expecting too much excitement in the markets this week. 

I hope you get to enjoy some time off with the family for Thanksgiving this week! 

That being said, just because we have a shortened trading week doesn’t mean there won’t be some interesting headlines hitting the tape… 

There’s never a shortage of tech stories out there and I’ll be sure to stay on top of the events this week, even on the off days. 

So, with that, read below for everything I have my eye on this week…
