This week we have oil prices in focus. Oil prices have been in a nose dive for the past two weeks, and this past week oil has fallen into bear market territory.

Plus 42%! In typical Wall Street fashion they've immediately overreacted to the bad (same story just reiterated) and hit the sell button on their Facebook stock, causing a massive drop in the stock price.

In most any other case this would be cause to celebrate. Not Wall Street, not in 2018. Wall Street has instead dec
As the world dives deeper into artificial intelligence, machine learning, and automation we feel it's important to know what's going on in the field even though we're not tech experts.
