Lyft crashes amid middling Uber market debut


Uber is becoming a public company during a week of back-and-forth tensions over trade discussions between the U.S. and China. On Friday morning the major indices were all down at least 1%.

Lyft shares fell more than 10% in after-hours trading on Wednesday after it released its first earnings report as a public company.
