3 High-Volume Stocks to Add to Your Watchlist This Week

While experts expect the market to witness some relief rallies as most of the negatives have already been priced in, the persistent macroeconomic headwinds are expected to keep the volatility alive. Therefore, high-volume stocks Vale S.A. (VALE), Ambev (ABEV), and Nokia (NOK) could be great additions to your watchlist. Read on to learn more…

The Nasdaq Composite, S&P 500, and Dow rose 1.6%, 2.5%, and 1.9%, respectively, in the last trading session. Despite the occasional rallies, multi-decade high inflation, and the Fed’s effort to control it by raising rates are expected to keep the market extremely volatile.

A possible recession may lead to fewer jobs and weak consumer sentiment, weighing on the stock market. The median probability of a recession over the next 12 months stands at 47.5%, up from 30% in June, according to a Bloomberg survey of economists.

The Federal Reserve is expected to go with another 75 basis point rate hike rather than a larger move at its meeting next week to tame stubbornly high inflation.

Amid the uncertainties surrounding the stock market and the economy, it could be worth tracking high-volume stocks to minimize the liquidity risk. Vale S.A. (VALE), Ambev S.A. (ABEV), and Nokia Oyj (NOK) are among the most active equities on Wall Street at the moment. Because of their high trading volume, these stocks could be good additions to your watchlist.
