10 April Watchlist 👀

Table of Contents

 

Today we are watching…

1. Brent Crude Oil (#brent)

We have an update on the unprecedented oil crisis. Russia and Saudi Arabia are drilling like there’s no tomorrow, hoping Lukoil and Aramco can take vacant market share from bankrupt shale companies in the US, which need high oil prices. President Trump ordered a stop to that last week, threatening sanctions and the fourth trade war of his presidency against the two rebel nations. They’ve agreed to cut production, but it’s only by ten million barrels per day. Some think ten million barrels won’t cut it if we’re looking at a two-billion-barrel oversupply. They say we’re on course to run out of storage in April, so something has to give!

2. Pfizer (#pfizer)

Pfizer has been working on a new drug to combat coronavirus, and it claims the formula is “showing promise.” The antiviral compound would be administered to patients upon their arrival at the hospital. It doesn’t kill the virus, but it slows it down. It buys medics more time to get cured patients out the door and clear ventilators for reuse, taking pressure of healthcare systems and potentially allowing for earlier lifts of quarantine measures. Pfizer investors are running up the company’s stock price in anticipation of clinical trials, knowing that if there’s any blue-chip Big Pharma giant with the capacity to make, market, and distribute a vaccine, it’s Pfizer!

Staying Bust During Market Closures

Anyone out there? American markets took the day off on Good Friday, as did many exchanges around the world on Easter Monday. With no action on the indices, what’s a trader to do?

Well, out goes the noise. There are no momentary mega-risers or flash crashing mega-fallers to distract you from your investing analyses. Some will hit the Invstr feed with hot topics and questions, how long the rally will run. Others will unplug completely, crunch numbers in silence, and return to markets with conviction next week. One thing’s for certain, now’s the time to extend an advantage over market rivals.

Investing is not a zero-sum game, there’s plenty dollar to go round. However, to make more than the average investor, you need an ‘edge’ that the average investor doesn’t have. You need to know something he or she doesn’t know. You need a stronger gut, more practice, experience, and you need to work harder flat-out.

Most buyers and sellers are active between 9:30 a.m. and 4.00 p.m., official trading hours on the New York Stock Exchange. Others start at 8:00 a.m., catching pre-market, and they don’t go home until the bulk of after-market moves are made at 6.30 p.m. Commendable, but what if they took it a step further.

What if they didn’t take leave on days like today, studied companies at night, and traded them during the day? What if they took investing as seriously as athletes take their training? It won’t matter what your rivals do in the pre-market if they’re already ten years behind you. Down to business!
