Tesla (TSLA)

Tesla saw its stock pull back 1.9% on Friday, but looked set to stabilise on Monday as the price war for the electric car market intensifies.

Nvidia (NVDA)

Nvidia fell foul of a broader tech rout on Friday, falling 10% as investors smelt blood in the water for the sector. Investors have headed for less risky assets amid macroeconomic uncertainty and wavering bets for early interest rate cuts for major economies.


Nvidia lost around $200bn on Friday, spelling its worst day since March 2020.

Fresnillo (FRES.L)
