Growing Trade Optimism Lifts Stocks

Stocks closed higher yesterday as optimism grows for a U.S.-China trade deal.

Reports that China will be increasing foreign access to their markets lifted shares. And word that they are making their first sizeable soybean purchase since announcing their trade truce the other week was also cheered by the market.

Stocks came off of their highs by day's end as the no-confidence vote for Prime Minister Theresa May loomed. But after the close, Prime Minister May won the no-confidence vote in her party, ending the political showdown to her leadership during the contentious Brexit negotiations.

All of the above is good news for the market. But a trade deal is still a ways away. The fate of China's Huawei CFO is still up in the air. And the threat of a government shutdown in two weeks is still a real possibility.

But as I've said before, the strength of the economy continues to underpin the market.

And this correction will soon be over.

In the meantime, there are thousands of stocks beating the market. Over 1,080 stocks up 20% or more. And over 225 stocks up 100% or more YTD.

So don't be afraid of the recent pullback. There are plenty of winners out there, if you know what to look for.

That means getting into the right stocks and staying out of the wrong ones. Don't squander this time with preventable mistakes. Making money in the market is easier than you think. Just stick with proven, profitable stock picking strategies and you'll soon be beating the market. For tips on how to do that, and how to turn the probabilities of success in your favor on your very next trade, be sure you read my latest commentary...
