If there’s one thing investors, especially stock market investors, are afraid of right now, it’s low liquidity. Stocks have a variable degree of liquidity, but as the market crashes, so does liquidity. No one wants to buy stocks with a downward trend, while everyone wants to sell their stocks immediately. As a result, investors find themselves stuck with a dropping stock market portfolio and are forced to witness their savings dwindle.
One of the best safety nets against such a market crash is investing in markets with high liquidity. Without further ado, here are the best liquid markets to invest in post covid.
Amazon Marketplace
With Amazon FBA, selling on Amazon is easier now than ever before. One of the things that make an Amazon business so attractive is—you guessed it—high liquidity, or to be more exact, high turnover. When you buy products from a wholesaler and ship them to Amazon, if you’re careful about your product selection, all your units will get sold within a month. And since you’re investing in physical products, you can count on the price being quite stable over time, reducing your risk of losing money.
The only problem is that investing in the Amazon Marketplace requires expertise in retail that most people don’t have. One notable company called Ascend Ecom is working on this. Instead of selling their stocks, they offer people to start an Amazon business through their company through leveraging the power of their credit lines. They do everything from researching and buying products to shipping those products to Amazon while their clients can reap the profits.
The forex market is famously the most liquid market you can invest in. You can buy or sell your holding easily, just with a click whenever you want. However, the forex market in a given region is only open for a specified period of time which does, in theory, limit its liquidity.
Fast-Moving Consumer Goods
FMCG stocks are not as profitable as, say, tech stocks, but they’re liquid and relatively risk-free. The fast-moving consumer goods market is one of the least likely to suffer from market crashes and economic crises. There are two factors responsible for this stability. On the one hand, FMCGs are more essential for everyday life than other goods, while on the other, FMCGs have a longer expiry date than edible goods. This puts FMCGs on the sweet spot of security, making them more liquid than most other stocks.
