NEWS


Barstool Sports founder and probably 2020’s biggest stock promoter said on Tuesday he was staking his reputation on an ETF that would build a portfolio based on stocks recommended on Reddit.

Some uncertainty crept back into markets on Tuesday following the big comeback rally on Monday. Stock markets in Europe saw modest gains while equities in the US ended lower as tech stocks, including Apple and Tesla unwound half of Monday’s gains. 

The losses were attributed to bearish comments form a banking regulator in China that saw equites in the region edge lower despite the big gains the fay prior on Wall Street. Guo Shuqing, Head of the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission said that “Financial markets are trading at high levels in Europe, the US and other developed countries, which runs counter to the real economy.”

US bond yields inched lower so the dollar dropped and commodity FX pairs were the biggest beneficiaries. Gains in the euro came despite the ECB’s Panetta adding to a number of recent comments suggesting the ECB will not tolerate a jump in bond yields, suggesting a dovish tilt to the monetary policy outlook for Europe.
