2020 is Wild, But Who’s the Winner of this Insanity? Hint, It's Not Bitcoin

Tech stocks are giving crypto a run for their money. The market capitalization of Apple and Amazon reached $1.5 trillion during this frenzy which could be led by Robinhood traders.

The US stock market rallied to start the week despite an increase in coronavirus cases in dozens of states that has some experts worried that it might force officials to delay reopening plans across the country.

Coronavirus cases in the US have exceeded 3 million, and the death toll topped 132,993. “This is potentially setting the U.S. on a very different activity restart path than most Western countries and much of Asia,” warned Mike Pyle, global chief investment strategist.

Kristina Hooper, Invesco’s chief global market strategist, meanwhile says, “more fiscal stimulus is clearly needed as so much of the stimulus already enacted is very temporary in nature.”

Already, the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite has risen to an all-time high after recording 2.2% gains on Monday, the best one-day gain since mid-May.

The Dow also finished 1.8% higher, and S&P 500 climbed 1.6% to have its longest winning streak since December at five days in a row.

These gains were propelled by the Chinese market who had its best day in five years after Chinese state media advertised about the rising stock market.

Giving Crypto a run for its money

Shares of all the major technology stocks; Amazon, Netflix, Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, and Tesla, all led the market higher.

Amazon climbed above $3,000 a share for the first time has its valuation reaching $1.5 trillion.

The largest US company by market capitalization at $1.57 trillion, Apple rallied 24% YTD and jumped to an ATH yesterday and is edging out Microsoft. The company increased its iPhone manufacturing plans for the quarters ending September and December by 1 million to 2 million devices each.

The company also raised its iPhone orders for the March 2021 quarter by 5 to 10 million units.

What’s giving crypto a run for the money is Tesla, yet again. Back in October, Tesla Inc’s market value surpassed General Motors and has now added the combined value of GM, Ford Motor Co., and Fiat Chrysler.

“There is definitely a significant retail component that is driving shares higher,” said Wedbush Securities analyst Daniel Ives, referring to individual investors trading on platforms such as Robinhood.

Even gold had its fifth positive session in six and is currently at $1,793, unlike Bitcoin, which is sitting idle under $9,300. But the crypto market did see some winners.

On Monday’s frenzy, it was Chainlink, whose oracle is dominating DeFi data feeds, which made a new all-time high at $5.38.

This new peak was accompanied by an all-time high in daily active addresses at 8,310 as well just a few days back.
