Correct form - may finally be rising.
Trend in the Stock market is singular so have to use singular verb, hence it should be "has" instead of "have".

D) has shown investor confidence may finally be rising.
I got Answer D...

Hi daboo343 ,

The subject of the verb "may" is confidence. It is saying confidence "may" be finally rising.

I hope that makes sense. :)
