Stocks finished firmly lower today, though soundly removed from their intraday lows. Following Wall Street's fifth-straight weekly win, the Nasdaq fell triple digits to start the week, while the Dow and S&P 500 closed more modestly in the red, with the blue-chip index snapping a four-day win streak. Crypto was the talk of the town today, with several stocks getting a halo lift from Bitcoin's 19-month highs

  • Options traders eye Coinbase stock amid Bitcoin buzz. 
  • The latest airline merger attracting investor attention. 
  • Plus, Uber joins the SPX; CVNA's big breakout; and LULU hit with downgrade.
