Tech ETFs slide

In this series, we’ll look at yesterday’s sell-off in the technology sector, which was driven by escalating US trade disputes. We’ll focus on tech stocks’ international exposure in terms of revenue. According to Reuters, “The U.S. Treasury Department was drafting curbs that would block firms with at least 25 percent Chinese ownership from buying U.S. technology firms.”

The SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) fell 1.3% while the Invesco QQQ Trust (QQQ) fell 2.3%. Meanwhile, the First Trust Dow Jones Internet ETF (FDN), the ETFMG Prime Cyber Security ETF (HACK), and the Technology Select Sector SPDR ETF fell 3.1%, 2.2%, and 2.1%, respectively.
