Blue Chip Crashes the Top 10: November at TradeStation


A new company just crashed its way into TradeStation’s monthly top 10: General Electric (GE).

GE was the sixth most active symbol for our clients in November, up from 13th in October and 20th in September. Its increased popularity came as slowing business, management turmoil and credit worries reduced the once-mighty blue chip into a speculative trading instrument.

Most of the other big names this month were familiar:

  1. Apple (AAPL): The smartphone giant moved up from second in October as a post-earnings selloff drove volumes.
  2. SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY): The market-tracking fund slipped from No. 1.
  3. Nvidia (NVDA): The chip company rose from the seventh last month.
  4. (AMZN): The e-commerce giant fell one notch.
  5. Netflix (NFLX): The streaming-video stock slid down from No. 4.
  6. General Electric (GE): The industrial giant entered the top 10 for the first time in at least a year.
  7. PowerShares QQQ Trust (QQQ): The Nasdaq-tracking fund slipped one spot from October.
  8. Advanced Micro Devices (AMD): The chip maker dropped three notches.
  9. Costco (COST): The discount retailer rose from 15th the previous month.
  10. iPath S&P 500 VIX (VXX): The volatility-tracking ETN moved down from the No. 8 spot.
