Dear traders,

In today’s article we are going to review some interesting stocks that are worth your consideration when building a medium-term portfolio. 

This article will focus on earning a decent return via dividends. But we will also dive into the newest developments and charts… 

SPX Retracement Becoming Serious

The SPX reached a new high. But price action quickly made retracement below the important level of 3300. 

US Central Bank President (FED) Powell said in front of the congress that the banks will do whatever is needed to sustain the economy, but the concerns about a possible second wave of Covid and consequently a new lockdown increase the uncertainty of the market in general.

Volatility is also increasing due the US Presidential elections in November. Statistically the months before the elections are very volatile.

The Vix is around 30 which indicates that high volatility is on its way.
