Rosneft studying Morgan Stanley oil trading unit

Trade Alert president Henry Schwartz expects Twitter, based on its stock volume, to trade 150,000 to 200,000 contracts on Friday. Twitter, with a market capitalization of roughly $24 billion, is roughly a fifth the size of Facebook, valued at close to $120 billion. Twitter’s IPO raised just $1.8 billion, compared with Facebook’s massive, $16 billion offering.
