Despite its potential, both Biden and Trump steer clear of TikTok

  • As a possible ban still looms over TikTok’s growing user base, discussions about politics exist on nearly every corner of the video-based app.
  • But absent from these political discussions often are the candidates themselves, like President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden, whose campaigns have avoided the controversial platform.
  • One political scientist told Business Insider candidates will likely regret not joining the platform, while a digital strategist said it makes less sense for candidates to use TikTok because the app requires more authenticity than others.

CNBC: Tom Lydon Talks Tech Success Despite Lack Of Clear Trend

Looking at the various events of the week that revolve around the approaching general election, the renewed hopes of a new stimulus package, and now the sudden announcement of President Trump testing positive for Covid-19, there is a lot this could mean for an already volatile market. ETF Trends CEO Tom Lydon spoke with Kelly Evans on CNBC, along with Ron Insana, Senior Advisor to Schroders North America, about the tech space, the lack of a clear trend, and what that could mean, based on current data.

Something notable right off the bat pointed out by Lydon, is how despite the announcement regarding Pres. Trump, the Dow is still positive. It shows how while the stock market is not insensitive, the significant things going on in Washington D.C. are not having as large an effect on the market as the underlying areas.

This indicates that, while close to another earning

Steer Clear From This Blue-Chip Stock in October

It’s been an uninspiring year for blue chip IBM Corp (NYSE:IBM), and it could get worse. “Big Blue” is one of the worst stocks on the S&P 500 in October over the past 10 years. With the tech stock also trading near a potential layer of resistance and short-term options attractively priced, it might be a good time to buy puts on IBM.

Worst Stocks October

According to data from Schaeffer’s Senior Quantitative Analyst Rocky White, IBM shares have averaged a monthly loss of 4.24% in the last decade, finishing October in positive territory just three times. That’s good for the worst on the 25-stock list and bears the ignominious distinction of being the only Dow name present.

There’s a great deal of technical resistance working against IBM as well. The shares have been stymied by the -10% year-to-date level recently, while their 200-day moving average has contained breakouts

October’s clear night skies to offer backdrop to 3 major astronomy events

October’s crisp autumn nights will bring plenty for stargazers to see in the sky, ranging from a meteor shower to great views of the planets, but the top astronomy event of the month will come on the month’s final night.

No telescope is needed to see any of the three big events, but a sweatshirt and hat may be helpful as the nights gradually turn colder across the Northern Hemisphere.

In addition to the events, the night sky in general may start to look more clear than it has during the summer months. Part of this is due to the changing weather as colder, less humid conditions provide better viewing conditions than hazy, humid summer nights.

Here are the top three astronomical events to look for in October:

1. Mars Opposition

The Red Planet will outshine all other planets in the sky throughout October, appearing brighter
