    Apex Trading’s Weekly Bulletin: 10-14 May 2021 “Sell in May and go away”; that’s an old market adage that is based on the historical underperformance of the stock market in the ‘summery’ six-month period commencing in May and ending in October, compared to the ‘wintery’ six-month period from November to April.

    It was another sell-off week last, with most Indices around the globe, including the US’s S&P 500 completing its 4th week of losses, something that was last seen in August of 2019. Commodities were under pressure, as they were reacting to a stronger US Dollar. We are however seeing some relief so far this week, […]

    It was a case of another week, another record highs for most of last week for the S&P 500; until Thursday when the much ‘expected’ and ‘anticipated’ breather took place. The sell-off would continue into Friday’s session, and only time will tell if the US 3-day weekend will help put a pause to the selloff […]

Question 1:

"Can you add a short postion?" - Craig

Not at the start, but we may consider adding short positions later.

Question 2:

"You said we that we can put in a bid. What does this mean?"
