Stocks were relatively flat this morning after yesterday’s wild ride. A sudden and steep drop in Bitcoin was one contributing factor to an early morning exodus out of the speculative areas of the market in yesterday’s session.
Following a tumultuous and turbulent year in 2020, the US economy appears to be on track for a strong turnaround in 2021. Many investors are once again willing to take bets on small-cap stocks during these stages of economic growth cycles.
