In this episode, the coaches discuss Financial Technology, also known as FinTech, and its role in the market, and some of our favorite FinTech companies in 2021. Coach Mark shares some of his research regarding FinTech companies, the history of the movement, and some examples in banking, stock trading, crowdfunding, and more during this week’s Feature.
Before that, the coaches analyze the broad market conditions during our weekly Skyline. The S&P 500 is pushing towards all-time highs, commodities are trading in a broad range, certain sectors are outperforming (like Industrials and Materials) while others are stuck in their technical patterns waiting for a breakout (like Tech and Discretionary). The coaches analyze all of the price action that impacts markets and discuss the recent volatility around ViacomCBS and Discovery after Archegos Capital Management was forced to liquidate shares last week sending the stocks sharply lower.
