US arms and security stocks rise amid riots

US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Investors and speculators can find a reason to trade almost any instrument based on current events, writes 24/7 St.

The focus in late May and early June 2020 quickly shifted from the COVID-19 pandemic to massive civil unrest.

Protests in the United States after the death of George Floyd went from peaceful to rioting, robbery, violence and other actions, and this led to the introduction of curfews and other localization measures in many cities in America.

On June 1, the stocks of many weapons and personal safety companies rose in price in response to current events. Many of these stocks are micro-limited, and they tend to have serious price movements during certain periods of unrest and violence.
