How to trade the Biden 30

Don’t know which markets to target after the US Election? Trade the Biden 30 index. With Biden’s defeat of Trump in the primaries, you would buy the Biden 30 on the basis that it could rally in the months leading up to his inauguration in January 2021 – and be positively impacted throughout his four-year term.

If you believe that a Biden presidency is going to hamper growth of these sectors however, you could sell or ‘short’ the Biden 30 on the basis that the index could lose value under his first term.
