Heed This Warning…
After last week’s incident at the Capitol, Big Tech names like Amazon, Google and Twitter dominated the headlines with their recent banning frenzy.
This morning’s action showed that investors weren’t too happy. Twitter hit a double-digit loss before recovering this morning.
We’ll be following this story as more and more info starts to unravel… stay tuned for updates this week.
In the meantime, there are plenty of trends that the mainstream financial media aren’t covering.
Read below for everything that’s happening this week…
- CES Goes Virtual
Every year, I attend one of the biggest tech conventions in the world — the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
This conference exhibits the latest that technology has to offer with booths from tech companies featuring self-driving cars, AR/VR and even developing smart cities.
This year, however, amid the pandemic, CES has decided to go all virtual. Sadly, I will not be attending —you just don’t get the same experience with a virtual conference.
There will still be plenty of presentations, and I’ll be on the lookout for the latest to come out of the conference.
- Major Breakthrough in Fusion Energy
The joke goes that “nuclear fusion is always 30 years away.”
But a recent breakthrough from a research institute in Korea may bring nuclear fusion from fiction into reality — as early as the 2040s.
The Korea Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research (KSTAR) just burned for 20 seconds at 212 million degrees F.
- A New Bureau on the Heels of Russian Hack
On the heels of a devastating security breach that affected multiple parts of the U.S. government, the executive branch has taken steps to set up a new bureau for cybersecurity and emerging technologies.
The new Bureau of Cyberspace Security and Emerging Technologies (CSET) will act as a diplomatic branch of the State Department to help interact with adversarial nations on these topics.
The recent SolarWinds security breach started in March of 2020 and was only found this past December — a huge liability for all involved.
We can expect cybersecurity to always be at the forefront of investments from both the government and private companies.
- A Warning for Investors
Crypto investors beware: It’s a speculator’s market through and through.
Overnight, Bitcoin dropped in a double-digit downturn.
Right now, the hype’s making Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies a speculator’s market.
And if you’re not careful, you could lose your shirt with poor investments.
