Top Cannabis Stocks To Watch For Short Term Trades
Are top marijuana stocks on your watchlist for May? Most top cannabis stocks have fallen to new lows to start 2022. In addition, the cannabis sector did not participate in the rally the overall market experienced after the Fed announced a 50-basis point rate hike and undoing the trillions in asset purchases made since the beginning of the pandemic. At this point for the best cannabis stocks to rebound in 2022 it would take an announcement of US marijuana legalization being the catalyst.
In general, the top pot stocks have seen a downtrend that has lasted more than a year now. Although recently some Canadian marijuana stocks like Tilray Brands, Inc. (NASDAQ: TLRY) have seen some upside in 2022 these runs have been short-lived and good for only short-term gains. Unless the US establishes federal cannabis reform in 2022 it’s highly unlikely top cannabis stocks will deliver long-term returns to investors. Because of this many cannabis investors have begun using short-term techniques like day trading and swing trading to take advantage of the volatility in the market.
One area that has delivered short-term gains in the past is marijuana penny stocks. In general penny stocks refer to any stocks that trade under the $5 price point. Known for having significant market volatility these are considered higher risk-reward trades. Many active traders use chart patterns and technical indicators to put themselves in grade A setups that give them the best chances of producing a profitable trade.
Investing In Penny Stocks As An Active Trader
