The Strongest and Weakest Stock as Hedge Funds Resume Trading

by | Jan 4, 2022 | Stock Market Sectors

It’s the last day for the Christmas rally as hedge funds prepare to resume trading — and more in Tuesday’s stock market recap.

The so-called “Christmas rally” typically runs during the last five trading days of December into the first two trading days of January, bringing with it a rise in stock prices.

So far, we’ve seen strong movement among the major indices in the new year.

But we’ll also likely experience some volatility this week as hedge funds prepare to move back into the market, bringing more liquidity and larger price movements.

Elsewhere in the news, the FDA expanded eligibility for Pfizer’s COVID-19 booster shot to children between the ages of 12 and 15 as the U.S. hits record numbers for new cases due to the omicron variant.   

In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll discover whether the market is bullish or bearish right now… the best sector for low risk… the weakest sector for hedging and shorting… whether there’s more downside in store for bonds… the top reports to focus on… whether China is a factor… and a full market internal review for 2022.
