FOX Network to Tucker Carlson: You’re Fired!

Fox News on Monday said the network and its star primetime host Tucker Carlson “have agreed to part ways,” after more than a decade.

Carlson’s last program was Friday April 21st, Fox News said, meaning he did not get a chance to sign off to his viewers.

The news comes days after Fox News reached a historic 11th hour settlement with Dominion Voting Systems for over $787 million.

On the other side of the political news fence, Don Lemon has been fired from CNN, the former morning news show anchor announced to the World with a tweet on Monday.

Lemon was one of CNN’s most popular primetime anchors before new leadership moved him to co-host the network’s new morning show. A set of on-air blunders, and reports that Lemon struggled to get along with his co-hosts, put the show’s drama in the spotlight.

Earlier this year, Lemon got into hot water following remarks he made on air about former UN ambassador and 2024 Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley.

Hedge funds bearish on US Treasuries

Hedge funds went “all-in” against U.S. Treasuries as they placed their largest-ever short bet on the 10-year Note benchmark.

Latest positioning statistics from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) on commitments of traders revealed that hedge funds’ net positions on 10-year Treasury notes have never been more bearish.

The number of net derivative contracts on the “UST 10Y NOTE” dropped to a record low of negative 1.29 million in the week ending April 18, with hedge fund traders increasing their short bets by 149,350 contracts for the week. 

Make sure to set a reminder for todays Bulls, Bears & Blockchain where our expert Jon Najarian will discuss what this means for the economy.

Coinbase goes to war against the SEC

Be careful what you wish for. Coinbase takes another formal step to seek regulatory clarity from SEC for the crypto industry.

As we covered last week, Gary Gensler, the chair of the SEC was interviewed by Congress.

It’s obvious that there’s a lack of clarity among our regulators regarding crypto, as even the chair of the SEC has declined to say which crypto assets are securities.

Set a reminder and listen to todays show as our crypto currency expert Alex Mascioli breaks down how this happened, what it’s causing to happen and where we go from here.
