Potential national security review on the Twitter acquisition that could kill the deal (2 min read)

The US government is considering a national security review on Elon Musk’s ventures which includes the Twitter takeover deal.

The CFIUS that reviews foreign takeover of American business may be involved. If the Twitter acquisition does get reviewed by the CFIUS, then the agency could recommend Joe Biden to end the deal. Twitter’s stocks fell more than 13% in the premarket after the news but recovered and closed 4.86% lower on Friday.

The yen rose 1.4% against the dollar on Friday, the biggest daily jump since August. It is on track to snap a nine-week streak of weekly losses against the dollar. Traders and market strategists speculate that the Bank of Japan was involved in saving the yen as they saw lots of dollar selling and yen buying.

A newspaper in Japan said the authorities are conducting an operation to intervene in the foreign exchange market but the officials declined to comment on the matter.

Global GDP growth was at 6.1% last year and the IMF forecast it will decelerate to 3.2% this year and 2.3% in 2023, which makes it the weakest pace of growth since 2001. Elon said he has more confidence in the US economy than other parts of the world like China or Europe. China’s recession is driven by the real estate market while Europe is driven by energy.
