This is probably the biggest 1-day move my IB portfolio has made. Its also probably a textbook example of 'time in market' vs 'market timing'.
Stock markets rallied mildly on 5 Nov but exploded today 11 Nov with reports of an effective vaccine. As I am writing Financial stocks are staging a massive rally and many stocks in double digit territory:
Prudential (PRU) +17.91%
Santander (BNC) +21.98%
Lloyds (LLOY) +14.38%
Shell (RDSB) +12.54%
Not everything is double digit of course, stocks like GSK which had a good run up already is merely +1.82% up. CISCO, which I had picked over Zoom (shows how bad I am in stock-picking even though I got the sector correct - Video Conferencing) is at least up 4.5% while Zoom is down 15% (presumably because of the vaccine).
