Asian Stocks Down, as New Coronavirus Strain Makes a “Scary Headline”


Recommended Posts

Markets often do this type of tactic. Some big sellers take advantage and sell big.

Late, hours to days, the market heads back up.

This has been the usual thing..... until ..... the merry go round stops. Then the market will crash.

Question is how far a drop now and far far back up, in time rof Santa's rally?

Hi @skyreach


Chris Harvey’s reign as the year’s biggest bull won’t extend into next year.

The Wells Fargo Securities head of equity strategy, whose 2021 S&P 500 target is 4,825, predicts Wall Street will stage a vibrant year-end rally and then see a losing 2022.

Change of volume and momentum moves on the monthly to daily prices give a general indication of  likely longer term future.

Some think most markets have peaked viewing the existing total amount of borrowed money for investing because they think it is a no brainer and prudent rules go out of the window. The professionals have borrowed levels is at highest ever. This has been the precursor to bear markets.

When it starts, who can say? Anyone knows?

Also new public and other investors go into the market in its last stages. That is when some big professionals start to sell off, hence the big volatility moves in the markets. Some plausible public event / political event or an immediate negative drama unfolds is used to justify in the media why the sell off. The pattern is the same  every time.

Volatility increases , down huge amount, then up again, as the market makers have an agreed average sell price for their big clients. You cannot sell a huge quantity without the rest of the market sitting still, they sell into it too. So the price will go back up and more sell offs at the higher levels.  What happens after that depends on the general market's mood.

Lot of people, in the frenzy, think "the markets will ALWAYS GO UP AFTER A FALL / CORRECTION. But there comes a point it will  not. Still the players HOPE that it will go back up. Always investors usually experience sometime in their trading life.

    • Forex or Crypto swing trading is a trading style based on identifying swings in the market. Since these swings can take a while to develop, swing trading is most often done over the course of several days or market cycles. If visualized as surfers, traders who utilize this method are out to catch and ride big, long waves. However, in order to catch those waves, traders first need to identify major pivots in the market. What is a Pivot Point? For Crypto or forex traders, it is imperative to know what pivots are and how to spot them. Pivots are the points in the market where price changes direction, from bullish to bearish to bullish, etc. There are important points in price, and there are less important points. Swing traders will not focus on minor pivots, while scalpers will try to take advantage of every minor pivot found. How to Identify Major Pivot Points for Crypto or Forex Swing Trading Major pivot points are easier to spot. They tend to form near support and resistance levels, or they themselves create a new important level. These are points where buyers and sellers are very active. Minor pivots form more regularly and randomly. 
    • The  listing of LSK on the named CEX, with their 20M+ user base will  expose LSK to a different set of traders who prefer or actively use the trading platform esp utilizng their copy trading product. This expanded reach could result in increased trading volume, which is often viewed positively in the crypto space.
    • I just learned about the recent listing of Lisk's utility token LSK on Bitget exchange, I'm curious to understand how this new development might impact both the token itself and the overall Lisk project. Apparently, this listing on Bitget adds another major exchange to the roster, alongside well-established platforms like Kraken, Kucoin, Binance, and OKX. This increased availability on different exchanges generally enhances liquidity and accessibility for traders and investors. More exchange listings can potentially attract a broader audience and bring in new participants to the Lisk ecosystem. To LSK token holders, I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on this recent listing on Bitget. Do you believe it will have a significant impact on the token's value and the project's trajectory? How do you see this development fitting into Lisk's broader goals of making crypto and Web3 accessible to everyone? Let's discuss and share our insights
