The market's ups and downs have been dizzying, but there are opportunities out there for those who know where to find them.
Just today alone, the Dow jumped 100 points higher at the open before plunging more than 300 points just before noon after a March jobs report teased a glimpse into the state of the U.S. labor market. The federal agency said that the U.S. economy lost more than 700,000 jobs last month. However, with more than 6.3 million people filing for jobless benefits last week, it's clear that unemployment is well north of 10%.
That's just a sign of the volatility we're going to see over the coming weeks as markets make sense of the coronavirus data.

But there's a way to peer through the haze and find the stocks with the most breakout potential.
Investors looking to use the current volatility to buy stocks with upside on the cheap should use insider buying as a way to find winning stocks. With insider buying, we're looking for executives, large shareholders, and other people with "skin in the game" who are putting their own money back into the stock.

Today, we'll show you two penny stocks that have seen an aggressive amount of insider buying in the last week.
We're focusing on two businesses that are poised for a big boost in demand due to government stimulus efforts and the huge shift in the economy to support American supply chains.
