The bears were hopeful for a few minutes overnight that a potential "end" of the China trade deal would change the character of this market action. That it isn't happening. We have a continuation of what we saw Monday with Apple (AAPL) leading the charge of big-cap technology names to the upside.
In addition, there is still very aggressive speculative trading in small-caps and various sectors. The SPAC space remains entertaining and I remounted some Forum Merger II (FMCI) Tuesday morning. Its target company, Tattooed Chef, is giving a presentation at an investment conference later Tuesday and should spell out some of its growth plans.
Another interesting sector Tuesday morning is pot stocks. The group is ideal for speculative traders and the charts started to turn up. Some names on my radar are Tilray (TLRY) , Cronos (CRON) , Village Farms (VFF) and Cresco Labs (CRLBF) . I think the pot group is in an early stage and will develop especially as the political debate picks up.
It continues to be a very good market for aggressive traders that focus on stock-picking and sectors. If you can spot the themes you are a step ahead.
