The Securities and Exchange Commission hasn’t formally approved the ProShares Bitcoin Strategy ETF. The SEC may never officially do so. But BITO can begin trading if the SEC doesn’t object.

Stock Market ETF Strategy And How To Invest

Stock Market Rally

The stock market rally added to Friday’s gains with mostly positive action Monday, though the Dow 30 did close slightly lower. All three major stock indexes — the Nasdaq, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 — are above their key 50-day benchmarks.

This is an important time to read The Big Picture.

On Friday, The Big Picture advised, “After Thursday’s follow-through, investors should add stocks in measured steps, at least while the market builds on the initial push. Remember, the growth-heavy Nasdaq 100 is still below the 50-day line. Now the question is, where to start investing? The market leadership has been shifting all year. It currently favors commodities, trucking, energy, financials and a few other sectors.”
