Robinhood Traders are Not Behind the Market Rally

Brokers such as Robinhood have become increasingly popular with retail investors.
Many people are asking if the recent surge in the stock market can be attributed to the rise of retail investors. Market researchers have concluded that there is no correlation between Robinhood customers and the performance of the S&P 500.

A recent Barclays' analysis revealed that while some retail investors are cashing in, many others are getting the market all wrong and losing money. Bullish Robinhood investors had been on a hot streak, only to experience significant pullback in recent days. Traders were favoring companies who had been hit the most by the pandemic. Travel companies were among some of the fan favorites. These stocks were down hard after the sell-off, which took place over the last few days.
