If you are looking at long term then many of those stocks look good, especially Rio, BP and Tesla. But careful with commodities as we have seen substancial gains and therefore might be best to wait for a decent pullback, also be aware as well that Trump may or may not deliver which could impact those stocks. It also depends what instrument you are using such as share dealing, futures, spread trading or CFD. Don't trade anything you cannot afford to lose. Final point with equity indexes at all time highs with a potential trade war as well many of those stocks could be impacted. Might be worth looking at banks too as they could more than likely thrive under Trump due to de-regulation and potential future interest rate hikes.

But make own decisions of course not suggesting you do anything i suggest, but overall they look interesting. A well diversified portfolio is key and try and give some good weight to those that would do well under the current and new environment.

    • ah yes, that you see was gallows type humour, as your search skills are progressing so admirably try looking it up. 
    • you see in English, closed means closed and open means open.  It's really quite simple once you've got the hang of it.
    • The govt is caught in a trap. Drunk on power it has run straight into a sewer and is in it up to it's neck. This farce would end tomorrow if the govt either stopped testing asymptomatic people, or capped the cycle threshold of the PCR test to 25, or only used the PCR if an antigen test (Lateral Flow) was positive first. Either of these would burst the bubble of the PCR false positives and 50% to 80% of cases would just disappear. But the govt can't do that because to do so would be an admission of gross incompetence or negligence or worse and would cause an avalanche of compensation claims. The govt's only hope is to keep pretending herd immunity doesn't exist, keep the false positives flowing and pin everything on vaccine immunity. The problem there is that it will take time and will also need 60% - 70% vaccine up take, that currently is looking unlikely so need to ramp up the fear campaign which is why new tv ads were ready and waiting. As soon as the numbers are reached then burst the PCR false positive bubble, give the vaccine the credit and the govt is off the hook. Trouble is no one knows when the numbers will be reached so we are stuck in limbo till then.
