JERSEY CITY, N.J., Feb. 5, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The intuitive investment and trading platform moomoo has recently completed a 2023 fourth-quarter U.S. users survey. Users have reported that they are more profitable and confident on average than six months ago and are trading more than a year ago, according to responses. Looking forward to 2024, users are more bullish on average and more expect the economy to avert a recession than they did in the last two surveys.
Amid a 2023 rally in the U.S. stock market, 40% of surveyed users report that they have made money compared to only 15% in 2022, a year when the S&P 500 lost 19.4%–its worst decline since 2008. The majority of users believe in a 2024 bull market and have been adding money to their trading accounts in 2023.
With user bullishness rising, along with the markets, 78% of surveyed users who made money in 2023 traded more, but surprisingly 58% of users who lost money also traded more often. For the 2024 market outlook, 45% of surveyed users are bullish compared to 39% at midyear and only 21% at the beginning of the year.
“More users are buying into the ‘soft landing’ economic scenario in the US. This has led to a more positive outlook on markets on average and increased stock trading,” said Justin Zacks, Vice President of Strategy at Moomoo Technologies Inc. “Following several major bank runs in the spring, many of our users regained confidence in the second half of 2023 about the safety of their money in traditional banks.”
26% of moomoo surveyed users don’t expect a recession anytime soon compared to 18% of users at midyear. Some investors believe the 2023 rally, which has been led by technology stocks, still has some steam. Over 80% of respondents expect the tech sector to outperform in 2024.
