Paul Kornfeld, President at SIACharts joins us for an comprehensive update featuring SIACharts' insights.
Listen on The Move
We talked about relative strength rankings and how they can guide your investment decisions globally. Small-cap stocks in the US may be lower ranked compared to their large-cap counterparts, but Canadian small-cap stocks are showing promise. We also discussed the movement in energy markets – they've been on the decline but set for gains, while alternatives have been gaining momentum. And fixed income? While it hasn't shown much improvement, it's waiting for that bounce back when interest rates start dropping. Stay away from underperforming areas, follow the analysis, and keep an eye out for sector opportunities in Canada and the US. And, we even explored potential investment opportunities in Mexico, and India. These countries are aligning with western interests, less vulnerable to China's influence, and have charts showing clear breakouts.
