Hot Stock Market Action Under the Surface
The major stock indexes might be consolidating in a choppy range but lately it has been sizzling hot under the hood of the market:
- The software sector had one of its best weeks in 2020 with many names going up several days in a row and squeezing to new all-time highs again;
- Trade war or not, mid-cap Chinese ADRs were on absolute fire last week. Quite a few gained 15-20%. Will mega-cap Chinese stocks follow next week? Some of them are looking primed;
- Corona-virus related stocks woke up and jumped higher as we saw a significant uptick in new cases in several states and mask restrictions remain intact;
- Towards the end of the week, the major biotech ETFs broke out to new all-time highs again. So many biotech stocks showed incredible relative strength on Friday and are looking constructively for higher prices next week.
