US Market View

U.S. stocks are set to open higher Friday, although gains are likely to be limited with the market set to close early in the aftermath of the Thanksgiving Holiday. Generally positive coronavirus vaccine news and emerging political certainty in the U.S. have prompted strong gains on Wall Street, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average topping the 30,000 mark for the first time earlier this week. Sterling remains near three-month highs against the U.S. dollar, despite U.K. Finance Minister Rishi Sunak’s horrific spending review a couple of days ago. Crude oil prices traded mixed Friday, but still close to their post-pandemic highs as attention turns to next week’s crucial meeting of OPEC+.

President Donald Trump said on Thursday he will leave office if the Electoral College votes for President-elect Joe Biden. This is the closest he has come to conceding the election, and adds to the feeling of normalcy returning to U.S. political circles. It’s Black Friday, traditionally the busiest shopping day in the United States, but this being 2020, things are set to be different.

Pictures of shoppers fighting to get into shops in the search for bargains have been the staple of news channels for years, but Covid-19 restrictions have forced shops to divert most purchases online.  Many major retailers, hit hard by the pandemic, started offering their Black Friday promotions much earlier than usual, taking their lead from Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) hosting their Prime Day in the middle of October, in order to capture as much holiday-related trade as possible.

In 2023, expectations for US Q1 earnings were low due to economic challenges and rising interest rates. Surprisingly, many companies beat these low expectations, with 75% of S&P 500 companies surpassing forecasts.

Stocks to trade in July

When I started trading stocks a few years ago, I often needed to pay more attention to my technical analysis skills and trust that the market would play fair according to my analysis. I have since discovered that the safer approach to trading stocks is to, more often than not, seek out investing opportunities - that is, catching stock commodities with a potential to rise.
