1. Sky Shares Rally 8.6% On Comcast Deal
U.S. cable giant Comcast scored a big win in the race for media assets by beating Disney in the battle for Sky with an eye-watering $40 billion bid. It was a “great day” for Comcast according to Chairman and Chief Executive Brian L. Roberts. It was undeniably an even greater win for Sky shareholders as the stock rallied more than 8 percent across the charts. Sky shares started Monday trading 8.6% higher at £1721.51 as of 7:00 GMT.*

2. Twitter Shares Plummet On Message Bug
Twitter announced on Friday that it had fixed a bug affecting one of its APIs that may have sent users’ private direct messages and protected tweets to third-party developers who were not meant to receive them. Twitter now has more than 336 million monthly active users; meaning more than 3 million people were potentially impacted. The company’s shares plummeted on the news, closing 4.5 percent lower on Friday, at $28.50. Meanwhile all technical indicators point to a strong sell trend, hinting that the bears may continue to push TWTR lower after the U.S. bell on Monday.**

3. IOTA Freefalls After Long Bullish Run
IOTA tumbled 12% in early Monday trading, to last trade at 0.54130 down 7 cents as of 7:20 GMT, after a long bullish run last week. The dip seems to reflect user disappointment on the release of a smart contract on IOTA’s core protocol today. With technicals pointing to a strong sell trend for the day, IOTA pairs seem to be in for a long bear dive.***
