The market finished strong Monday, rallying over 1% across the board, with the S&P hitting new highs again. This rally shook off last week's sell off, and will continue to gain momentum the rest of the week , barring any covid craziness from the government.
Pre-market the Dow , S&P, and Nasdaq are all up over 1%, with the Nasdaq leading early morning future gains at 1.72%. This is good news for our current positions, which I will go over with shortly . This rally indicates dissipating fears over inflation, the covid variant, and interest hikes. This rally should continue to the end of 2021, and we will continue to be long until sentiment changes. The big concern on the horizon could be global geo-political risk as tensions heighten between the US , China and Russia. Lack of strong leadership has put Ukraine and Taiwan in vulnerable positions, with possible military escalation to come as both Russian and China seek to invade the countries. This is no surprise given Biden inapt ability and lack of mental capacity continue to put the world into unprecedented risk. If we do see military action, we could be facing a quick market collapse and global economies are already teetering on the brink of a depression given global covid policies.
