Top ETFs To Buy This Week Following Recent Sell-Off
Markets finished last week lower for the first weekly loss in the last four weeks. After closing with weekly gains for three consecutive weeks, markets whipsawed last week between stimulus worries, all time highs in COVID numbers, and election anxiety, while taking note of positive economic data and strong earnings. While investors continued to stand by and digest the news in the final week before the election, nobody really knows what to expect. The indices are still marginally higher for October, however, anytime there’s some sort of good news, it’s always capped by bad news or fears. Along with waiting on election developments this week, investors are also eagerly anticipating big earnings announcements from major companies such as Apple AAPL , Facebook, Alphabet, Amazon AMZN , Boeing BA and Caterpillar. The first look at third-quarter GDP data is also set to be released on Thursday. For investors looking to navigate these uncertain markets, Q.ai’s deep learning algorithms have identified several interesting ETFs based on their fund flows over the last 90-days, 30-days, and 7-days. This includes two Attractive, two Neutral, and two Top Shorts. We also have two other interesting unrated ETFs for this week as well.
