  • Industrials represent 35% of the top Widely Helds, with Financials at 30%

Sample of Losing Trades from the Leaderboard: Note - The losing trades were the leaders that sold out of their positions on Tuesday and missed Wednesday's big rally. A few of them were knocked from Top 5 leaderboard positions out of the top 10. You gotta be in it to win it.

Bets for today (July 17th): Some have expectations of a continued rally in Financials while others are reducing their risk by betting on Blue Chips as they coast to the finish line.
