Market Wrap-Up: Week of 2/17/2019

Good morning everyone. In case you missed it, here's what happened in the markets this week. The Dow ended the week positive for its ninth straight week. And this weekend will be busy with Warren Buffet releasing his annual letter to shareholders on Saturday and the Oscar's on Sunday.

I'll see your 5G, and raise you 6G. Donald Trump called for the rollout of 6G technology in the U.S. this week.

President Trump indicated this week he’s open to moving back the deadline if it looks like progress is being made in trade negotiations. Even President Trump declaring a national emergency to build a border wall on Friday could do nothing to faze the markets.
