Three Nasdaq Stocks To Watch Under $10
Excitement surrounding the events leading up to troubles with North Korea. The stock market is on high alert after President Trump made comment to what U.S. President Harry S. Truman said before ordering the use of force on a nuclear level against Japan.
In light of this, the broader markets took a turn to the red heading into the lunch hour and the CBOE Volatility index, which maps market fear, spiked. Despite this occurring, there were stocks that went against the general down trend; many in a big way. Several stocks trading under ten dollars per share have been bucking a bull trend for the majority of the month as well.
