At the SPAC of Dawn

On a day when the US markets are closed, there’s always a chance of SPAC actions sliding by as the SEC has left its EDGAR filing system open.

Right on cue, Welsbach Technology (NASDAQ:WTMA) filed that it had come to a definitive agreement with battery production technology firm Evolution Metals.

The long market weekend also presses pause on the historic roller coaster week that Trump Media (NASDAQ:DJT) has been on since closing its combination with Digital World. After hitting a high of $79.38 earlier in the week it slid into the end of Thursday trading at $61.96 and the skid has continued after close.

Historically, US markets tend to enter Good Friday on a high note then retract slightly on their first day back before rising again on the second day out from the holiday.

  • Welsbach Technology (NASDAQ:WTMA) has signed a business combination agreement with Evolution Metals, which will result in the SPAC owner 100% of the battery production technology target.
