  • April was a rebound month for markets and saw continued momentum on the Marketplace.
  • Macro oriented services continue to 'out-index', but there's plenty of variety in the top climbers for April.
  • While it's not clear where the market is headed, there's a Marketplace service available for just about any outlook or style.

The world, the economy, and the market are all in a weird place. It's a different weird place for each, with the world hoping to return to normal, the economy bracing for continued pain from covid-19 inspired lockdowns, and the market...coming off its best month since 1987 as measured by the S&P 500 and the Dow, and the Nasdaq just shy of its start of year levels at Thursday's close.

There's plenty of discussion to be had about where we're headed, and whether the current pricing makes sense. Marketplace authors, like market participants at large, have disagreements about whether this is too fast or just right for a recovery. You can see that dissension from our recent roundtables and our video interviews. That disagreement is what makes a market, after all.

The Marketplace had a strong month in April, as investors around the world looked for services that could inform their views and strategies, and which resonated with their investing approach. Those approaches are diverse, as reflected in our list of fastest climbers for April. Macro themes continue to be front of mind, but dividend, value, contrarian, energy, and tech investing services continue to do well.

We present our top 20 fastest climbing services, as ranked by net MRR (monthly recurring revenue) added over the last 28 days of the month:

I think very highly of Colorado Wealth Management Fund, good advice. I also read a lot of Rida's articles but he is a bit heavy in Canadian investments which I do not do.
