Online trends in investing
Simon goes in search of the online investment trends in 2021. These include crypto currencies making a huge leap, the availability of numerous apps to trade with and a look at the forecast on both stocks and various crypto currencies.
If you are interested in investing in stocks, the possibilities are enormous. So it's useful to determine your choices for certain stocks on data. Or to have a predictive gift. It is almost impossible to predict what the stock market will look like this year, or next year.
To find out what he should do best, Simon contacted a number of experts to discuss the upcoming trends in investing with them.
Trend 1: The rising stock market
One point of discussion is the current stock market. There are experts who state that now is a very bad time to buy stocks, because the prices will eventually drop considerably in the coming months. On the other hand there are also experts who state that the market is going to rise again, because there's still a lot of money being printed by different countries.
If you want to invest in shares or ETFs, the experts agree on the strategy to follow: buy and hold! In fact, you make a deal with yourself to only buy and hold for a longer period. Anyway, we believe that you invest for the long term. We previously wrote this article about this.
Trend 2: Apps for trading
A major trend is the availability of apps to trade or invest with. It was inevitable that this would become available on such a scale, because people actually do everything on their own phones. That includes trading.
The apps themselves are becoming more and more user-friendly so trading is becoming more and more accessible.
There are various types of apps available that all focus on different forms of investing. For example, with BUX you can invest in shares and ETFs yourself, and through the Dutch start-up Pennywise you can build up a pension through index investing.
With the BOTS app you can invest in crypto currencies, although on the long term this will be extended to other assets as well. The advantage of investing through the BOTS app is that this is being done for you by algorithms made by experienced traders and developers. So actually the bots in the BOTS app are automated trading strategies.
Trend 3: Crypto currencies
It's happening more and more often: trading in crypto currencies. Trends in the crypto market are much more difficult to predict because it is still a capricious market, in which a lot happens. Nevertheless, trading in crypto is on the rise. Not only by individuals, but also increasingly by companies.
Arthur, the head of the bot creator team at BOTS, is convinced that the crypto market is becoming more mature, and that the price of (for example) Bitcoin will rise even further in 2021, which will contribute positively to crypto currency trading.
