How to trade the Biden Giants

If you feel the same companies targeted for growth potential before the 2020 presidential election continue to have scope for further positive impetus now, then this is a market you will be keen to buy into.

Alternatively, you may feel there are indications Joe Biden’s policies might instead hamper the growth of these sectors.

On this basis, you could sell or ‘short’ the Biden Giants on the basis that the index could lose value through the course of his White House tenure.
