With intraday fluctuations of up to 80%, the Canadian marijuana stocks on our list could be good for traders
SmallCapPower | November 18, 2016: Some Canadian marijuana stocks went on a wild ride Wednesday, causing more than one trading halt in their stock in a single day. The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada said the halts were triggered by single stock circuit breakers “due to volatility in the stock prices.” Circuit breaks are tripped when a stock climbs or falls at least 10% in a five-minute period, which appears to have been the case with the six marijuana stocks Wednesday. This type of volatility directly supports the release of our Marijuana Stock Bubble index, as valuations get completely out of hand in a matter of minutes. Although this is not good for the industry as a whole, it creates day trading opportunities for those so inclined. That being said, the Canadian marijuana stocks on our list today saw intraday fluctuations of up to 80%.
