US tech stocks stumble
NYSE FANG index’s worst week

Tech darlings, many of which have driven US indices higher over the last year, suddenly got cold feet. Facebook first, now Tesla too – hitting the lowest price in almost a year – on a downgrade from Moody’s, Alphabet and Amazon off by 4 per cent, Netflix 6, Twitter a massive 12 per cent lower on expectations of further regulation on its social media platform.

After leaving Beijing with his wife, it was announced that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had spent three days in China on an unofficial visit. It is believed to be his first trip abroad since taking over from his father 7 years ago. Chinese state news agency Xinhua says he pledged to de-nuclearise the Korean peninsula while Xi Jinping said he would uphold the friendship
between their two countries. Others say it was a dry run ahead of the summit with President Trump.
