Cannabis Stocks Gain As Marijuana Markets Rally Following Wall Street's Worst Week In Two Years – PotNetwork (blog)

Cannabis stocks saw weak gains on Monday as Wall Street rallied following last week’s near panic that experts dubbed a “market correction.” Still, incremental gains in the sector were pared by minimal losses among individual pot stocks as investors remained patient in early week trading. Monday also saw the start of new seeds planted in the sector as the Evolve Marijuana ETF (TSX:SEED) launched to great fanfare in Toronto. President Trump’s new budget appeared to give U.S. investors a new sense of confidence following the markets steepest drop in almost two years.

Wall Street bounced back on Monday on the announcement of the new Trump budget, alongside strong technical market indicators that momentarily put a sense of ease back into the exchanges. Following an anxiety-inducing 1000 point drop last week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 1.7 percent to close out the day at 24,601.27. Both the Nasdaq and the S&P 500 showed equally impressive gains on Monday. Not to be outdone, Canada’s main stock index jumped 200 points as well, indicating to some that global markets were settling down following last week’s “correction.”

Still, others were hesitant to call an end to the market correction. “It’s too soon to tell if it’s a counter trend rally that’s sustainable,” said Mark Luschini, chief investment strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott in Philadelphia in an interview with Reuters.

The North American Marijuana Index dragged itself across the finish line on Monday, climbing 1.46 points, a gain of 0.52 percent to end the day at 281.07. U.S. cannabis stocks and their Canadian brethren up north each saw minimal gains respectively, with the former gaining .95 percent and the latter .34 percent.
