Another wild week in the markets sent the Dow more than 600 points lower last Friday alone, as investors considered the latest escalations in the U.S.-China trade war. Against this back-drop, this week is poised to be another busy one for markets.

(Bloomberg) -- VMware Inc. agreed to purchase two software companies on Thursday, expanding its reach in development tools and cybersecurity.The Palo Alto, California-based company said the net cash payout for the two purchases will be $2.7 billion. It’s buying Pivotal Software Inc., which sells cloud software and services, for a blended share price of $11.71, representing an enterprise value of $2.7 billion. VMware also agreed to purchase Carbon Black Inc., a cybersecurity firm, for $26 a share, representing an enterprise value of $2.1 billion.VMware, which makes virtualization and networking tools and is majority-owned by Dell Technologies Inc., said the combined company will provide software to build, run, manage, connect and protect any app on the cloud or any device. Purchasing the two companies will accelerate VMware’s plan to deliver secure, multicloud application development.The two acquisitions “will meaningfully expand our ability to power our customer’s digital transformation,” said Pat Gelsinger, VMware’s chief executive officer.“These acquisitions address two critical technology priorities of all businesses today -- building modern, enterprise-grade applications and protecting enterprise workloads and clients,” he said.Pivotal CEO Rob Mee said, “Together, we will form an organization that combines Pivotal’s expertise modernizing organizations with VMware’s capabilities and experience operating at scale.”Once the deal for Waltham, Massachusetts-based Carbon Black is complete, VMware said it would be positioned to provide “highly differentiated, intrinsic security cloud” through big data, behavioral analytics and artificial intelligence.“We now have the opportunity to seamlessly integrate Carbon Black’s cloud native end point protection platform into all of VMware’s control points,” said Patrick Morley, Carbon Black’s CEO.Both transactions are expected to be completed in the second half of VMware’s fiscal year, which ends Jan. 31.JPMorgan Chase & Co. acted as financial adviser to VMware on the deals, with Morrison & Foerster LLP acting as legal adviser to VMware on the Carbon Black acquisition and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati as legal counsel to VMware on the Pivotal purchase.(Corrects overall purchase price in headline, purchase values in story.)\--With assistance from Jim Silver.To contact the reporter on this story: William Turton in New York at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Tom Giles at firstname.lastname@example.org, Andrew Martin, Andrew PollackFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

The British pound initially fell during the week but then rallied towards the crucial 1.2250 level again. This is an area that has been important more than once, so it makes sense that we are struggling just a bit here. That being said though, I think that the market is simply bouncing from a very low level.
The British pound has gone back and forth during trading on Friday, as we continue to see a lot of volatility in Sterling. Quite frankly, there is nothing on the horizon that looks like the Brexit is going to be salt, so this should offer a nice selling opportunity at higher levels.
(Bloomberg) -- Semiconductor companies and Apple Inc. fell sharply on Friday, as the trade war between the U.S. and China continued to escalate.China’s Ministry of Finance said the country plans to levy retaliatory tariffs on another $75 billion of U.S. goods, pressuring the securities in pre-market trading. Their losses were extended following the open, after President Donald Trump subsequently said that he would announce his response Friday afternoon.Apple fell as much as 3.9%. The iPhone maker is heavily correlated to trade issues because China is both a major part of its supply chain and a notable market for its products. The company derived nearly 20% of its 2018 revenue from China, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.Chipmakers have been similarly volatile because of the trade war. The Philadelphia Semiconductor Index dropped 3.6% on Friday, and every member of the benchmark industry index was in negative territory.Among notable decliners, Qualcomm Inc. lost 3.3% while Nvidia Corp. was off 5% and Micron Technology shed 3.5%. Broadcom Inc. was down 4.9% and ON Semiconductor Corp. lost 5.4%.Technology stocks were the weakest-performing sector on Friday, with the S&P 500 information technology index down 2.4%. The S&P 500 overall fell 1.4%.(Adds Trump’s response in second paragraph, updates prices to market open)To contact the reporter on this story: Ryan Vlastelica in New York at email@example.comTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Catherine Larkin at firstname.lastname@example.orgFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
