The Kentucky Derby Foreshadows May’s Most Lucrative Stocks

May is here, and everything is going as predicted.

On Friday evening, the Night Trader chatroom was buzzing with different strategies for this month.

If you haven’t joined us in the chatroom yet, you really should consider tuning in. It’s incredibly fun, and the casual setting provides the perfect atmosphere for fluid, informative conversation. Call 1-877-211-3024 now to find out how you can join and talk shop with me and your fellow traders.

The main topic of conversation was the opportunities ahead of us, as well as talks of “selling in May.”

I pointed out that we need to hang in there for a few weeks as the seasonality often pushes stocks higher as earnings season continues.

The cryptocurrency swept to a new all-time high of $64,829.14 on Tuesday, following the Coinbase (NASDAQ:COIN) IPO. But after this “buy-the-rumor” rally, the inevitable “sell-the-news” drop followed on the weekend.

We see this sort of trend happen all the time, no matter what the asset is, and we can use it to position ourselves for future profits in all sorts of different investments.

When I say, “trend,” I’m talking about the 50-day moving average.

I’ve been looking at the 50-day moving average of different stocks across multiple sectors, and my technical data is showing me that the market will follow the same pattern we saw in BTC this past week.
