How are the most popular investors on eToro investing in Spain?

World stock markets are experiencing a hectic final stretch of the year. Shaken since March by the coronavirus pandemic, investors have regained faith in the heat of the vaccine news, sparking volatility and creating new trading opportunities, although we already know that past returns do not guarantee future returns.

Pharmaceuticals like Pfizer or Modern announced vaccines with an effectiveness greater than 90%, while Astrazeneca lowered this threshold to 70%. And the reading of the markets could not have been more positive.

The prospects of leaving the virus behind and returning to normality and growth are spurring the worst hit sectors, such as banking, tourism or energy. An exit to the upside that investors can take advantage of to look for the long-awaited Santa Claus rally.


In fact, the best investors continue to make a profit, as reflected by the ‘popular investors’ of eToro, thanks to their knowledge, experience and long-term vision of the markets.
