    1 Bullish Trend to Track Now

    1 Bullish Trend to Track Now

    In the stock market, trends can tell a story.
    Trends can be at the heart of a trading strategy.
    They can tell you whether a stock is heading up or down. Trends can also be used as a factor to determine whether it’s a good time to buy or a good time to sell.
    Recently, a major index showed a trend that could lead to a broader bullish market on the horizon.
    Just a few days ago, another index along with an individual sector indicated this same trend happening.
    Before now, investors were pushing the overall stock market higher with a technology-driven rally.
    Investors have been thirsty for fast growth technology stocks and leaving other sectors behind.
    But that has changed.
    In this episode of investors (https://moneyandmarkets.com/5-steps-investing-for-beginners/).
    He looks at exchange-traded funds (https://moneyandmarkets.com/how-to-invest-in-an-etf/) that track broader sectors in the stock market and shows you what to look for in this trend.
    He’ll explain what this trend is and what you should do about it.

    Industrials Gain Steam — 3 Stocks to Watch

    Industrials Gain Steam — 3 Stocks to Watch

    According to the Federal Reserve, industrial production in the U.S. has contracted at an annual rate nearly 43% in the second quarter.
    That’s the largest quarterly decrease since World War II.
    What’s more is factory output fell 47% at an annual rate in the second quarter.
    But industrial sector stocks didn’t get the message that U.S. industry is faltering because those stocks are still on the rise.
    The S&P 500 Industrial Sector SPDR ETF (NYSEARCA: XLI) — an exchange-traded fund (https://moneyandmarkets.com/how-to-invest-in-an-etf/) tracking some of the biggest industrial-related stocks — jumped more than 50% since reaching a low in March 2020.
    The industry sector is as far as it is wide when it comes to companies. It encompasses everything from aerospace and defense to machinery, tooling and transportation.
    In this episode of The Bull & The Bear (https://moneyandmarkets.com/podcast/), host Matthew Clark talks with Money & Markets Chief Investment Strategist Adam O’Dell and contributor Charles Sizemore about three industrial sector stocks.
    They’ll examine what each of these three companies do and how they’ve performed recently.
    What’s even better is you’ll get insight on what you should do with these three companies — if you are thinking about buying or already have them in your portfolio.

    2 Tesla Disruptors to Watch

    2 Tesla Disruptors to Watch

    You’ve heard the stories about how Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) shares have been skyrocketing (https://moneyandmarkets.com/the-bull-the-bear-tesla-stock/) over the last several months — up 200% since the start of 2020.
    But you probably haven’t heard as much about two other electric vehicle producers that are rising just as fast.
    Chinese-based Nio Inc. (NYSE: NIO) and Nikola Corp. (Nasdaq: NKLA) have also been on the rise of late.
    In fact, Nio jumped 14% to start this week after it reported a 322% increase in July vehicle deliveries. Nikola earning a buy rating from Deutsche Bank on Monday and surged 22%.
    It speaks to the overall growth of the electric vehicle market.
    Even the global market for electric vehicles is expected to grow five times over by 2026.
    With the market share expected to grow that far, that fast, these three companies are setting themselves up to be the favorites to lead the expansion.
    Some pundits even think Nio and Nikola can rise even farther and faster (https://www.cnbc.com/2020/08/04/nio-nikola-stocks-could-be-better-bet-than-tesla-traders-say.html) than the more known Tesla.
    In this episode of The Bull & The Bear (https://moneyandmarkets.com/podcast/), host Matthew Clark will look at all three companies and tell you if the pundits are right or not.
    Right now, there’s no comparison between the three companies as Tesla dwarfs the other two.
    But that’s not to say that Nio, Nikola … or even both … couldn’t give Tesla a run for its money in terms of market share.
    We’ll look at how each company is performing and whether the data supports the possibility that Nio or Nikola could test Tesla’s electric vehicle dominance.
    You need to know what the trends are and what the data tell you to determine if they are worth investing (https://moneyandmarkets.com/5-steps-investing-for-beginners/) in.
    That’s why we do the work for you by looking at specific stocks, exchange-traded funds and cryptocurrencies and providing our analysis to give you the most sound and reliable information.

    3 Big Materials Stocks to Watch

    3 Big Materials Stocks to Watch

    The materials sector of the stock market is one of the most diverse of the 11 S&P 500 (https://moneyandmarkets.com/what-is-the-sp-500-how-does-it-work/) sectors.
    It contains companies that process chemicals, construction materials, glass, paper, forest products and packaging.
    What’s more is that it also includes metals, materials and mining companies.
    The sector has enjoyed a nice bounce lately.
    The S&P 500 Materials Sector SPDR ETF (NYSEARCA: XLB) — an exchange-traded fund (https://moneyandmarkets.com/how-to-invest-in-an-etf/) tracking some of the biggest materials-related stocks — is still up 14% in the last six months. In fact, since reaching a low of $40 in March, the ETF has jumped more than 55%.
    A lot of that is because of the jump in gold prices — gold futures have reached $1,950 an ounce.
    In this episode of The Bull & The Bear (https://moneyandmarkets.com/podcast/), host Matthew Clark talks with Money & Markets Chief Investment Strategist Adam O’Dell and contributor Charles Sizemore about three materials sector stocks.
    They’ll examine what each of these three companies do and how they’ve performed recently.
    What’s even better is you’ll get insight on what you should do with these three companies — if you are thinking about buying or already have them in your portfolio.
    Remember, knowing the data and the details about a specific company helps you determine whether it is worth investing (https://moneyandmarkets.com/5-steps-investing-for-beginners/) in.
    That’s why we do the work for you by looking that these specific stocks and give our analysis on each one.
    Pro tip: One of the stocks we discuss is a gold stock. Adam predicts that gold will skyrocket as high as $10,000 (https://pro.moneyandmarkets.com/m/1603810) an ounce in the years ahead.

    Bitcoin Crosses $11,000 — What to Do Now

    Bitcoin Crosses $11,000 — What to Do Now

    Just when it seemed like cryptocurrencies were finding a bit of market stability, bitcoin (https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/BTC-USD?p=BTC-USD) goes and changes the game.
    From its recent low of $4,970.70 in March — due to the coronavirus crash — to its price (as of Wednesday) above $11,000, its value has jumped more than 120%.
    Bitcoin has been considered by some investors to be a safe haven against market volatility equal to gold (we’ve talked about that before, here (https://moneyandmarkets.com/gold-or-bitcoin-which-is-the-better-buy-for-you-right-now/)).
    The big question for investors is: How high will bitcoin go?
    In this episode of The Bull & The Bear (https://moneyandmarkets.com/podcast/), host Matthew Clark goes in-depth on bitcoin.
    We know that bitcoin is a bit of an enigma, but investors have real questions about whether the cryptocurrency is worth investing in or not.
    We’ll examine bitcoin and how it’s performed recently. It’s important to take a hard look at the data surrounding the cryptocurrency to see just what it says.
    What’s even better is you’ll get insight on what you should do with bitcoin — if you are thinking about buying or already have them in your portfolio.
    Remember, bitcoin — along with other cryptocurrency’s — can be risky investments. You need to know what the trends are and what the data tell you to determine if it is worth investing (https://moneyandmarkets.com/5-steps-investing-for-beginners/) in.
    That’s why we do the work for you by looking at specific stocks, exchange-traded funds and cryptocurrencies and providing our analysis to give you the most sound and reliable information.

    3 Industrial Stocks to Watch Amid Recovery

    3 Industrial Stocks to Watch Amid Recovery

    One sector of the stock market that took a massive hit because of the coronavirus is industrials.
    From its February 2020 high to its March 2020 low, the S&P 500 Industrial Select Sector SPDR ETF (NYSEARCA: XLI) — an exchange-traded fund (https://moneyandmarkets.com/how-to-invest-in-an-etf/) tracking some of the biggest industrial-related stocks — fell more than 42%.
    But now, industrials are starting to make a comeback.
    That ETF has risen nearly 50% since hitting that March low.
    And, as America starts to get back on track after virus-led lockdowns, industrial stocks stand to make huge gains.
    Money & Markets Chief Investment Strategist Adam O’Dell identified the industrial sector of the stock market as a leader to his Cycle 9 Alert readers this week.
    In this episode of The Bull & The Bear (https://moneyandmarkets.com/podcast/), host Matthew Clark talks with contributor Charles Sizemore about three industrial sector stocks.
    They’ll examine what each of these three companies do and how they’ve performed recently.
    What’s even better is you’ll get insight on what you should do with these three companies — if you are thinking about buying or already have them in your portfolio.
    Remember, depending on what your investment strategy is, not every company in a high-performing sector is worth investing (https://moneyandmarkets.com/5-steps-investing-for-beginners/) in.
    That’s why we do the work for you by looking at these specific stocks and give our analysis on each one.
