Top Trending Stocks
Should watching the top trending stocks be part of your everyday investment activities? Every rise in stock isn’t critical, but some rises reflect major company/product/market breakthroughs that send the company to another level of profitability.
Which stocks are going up or down? Which sectors are growing or falling? It’s important to know if your portfolio is heading in the wrong direction. For instance, if you’re loaded up with Cryptocurrency, marijuana and oil stocks right now, you must be scratching your head.
Such trending financial data can tell you a lot about where the market is headed in 3 months, in 2021, or 3 to 5 years ahead. Right now, biotech company stocks which might deliver a Covid 19 cure are hot. However, is the euphoria over a potential inoculation shot for Corona Virus going to pay off? For some firms, including Johnson and Johnson, it might be worth a gamble. Even if J&J fails, they will still do well with the booming economy later this year.
Stock market trends tell us about sentiment and changing individual stock evaluations. You can be sure when there’s a price jump or slump, something has happened that you need to know about.
What Is Stock Trend Analysis?
According to Timothy Sykes, a penny stock trader, “trend analysis is a technical analysis technique or a type of comparative analysis. The goal of trend analysis is to use past data to predict the future movements of stock prices. A trend is the overall direction that the market seems to be moving in over a given period. As a stock trader, what’s happened in the past can give you a solid idea of what to expect from a stock in the future. Investors look at short, intermediate, and long-term trends. They use trend analysis in an attempt to identify bull runs in the market and find trend reversals that show it might take a downturn.”
So What Happened When the Stock Market Tumbled?
What happened on the first day of the recent correction? Certain stocks began the fall launched by a series of negative news stories or leaked information from the government.
On that day, the increase in Corona Virus cases in China was being circulated. At first, no one understood the threat of a pandemic, but gradually by the week, the slide quickened. Those up on trend analysis would have investigated right away.
That’s not to say other things weren’t happening, but Corona Virus threat had to be the top factor before the slide.
And what’s transpired of course, is the one unexpected event that most talked about, that would cause the next recession.
In today’s trending stocks, an investigation apparently found the Luckin Coffee’s COO fabricated sales out. Luckin is the Starbucks of China. On the accounting probe’s results stock dropped 80%.
