This wasn't a correction it was just the market moving. It has been unusually stable of late and generally on the rise.
A correction is normally 10% and IMV is needed to bring valuations down a tad and bring better buying opportunities.
This might be the start and events in the news might make things more jittery and prone to over reactions but Im waiting for markets to come off the boil somewhat. Maybe I have (or want) a different outlook as I look for income shares for that… Read More
Thanks for clarifying the "uncrossing trade" better than I managed to. Some VG points also.
Much agree regarding the potential for significant MM manipulation in low volume AIM stocks, a market far more difficult to regulate. Though rewards of trading AIM stocks can be great, so can losses for the less wary.
In some cases resulting in total wipeout, as it can also be very difficult to exit low volume AIM stocks at any price when surprise bad news hits, as… Read More
Some really excellent information here and discussion about how the market is meant to operate and how it actually does. I'll just throw a couple of observations in ... 1) UT trades at the start/end of the day are generally (but not always) aggregated trades between market makers, as such they really aren't buys or sells rather just a movement of shares from those in surplus to those who are short. It used to be the case that a gentleman's agreement existed for these movements and they were… Read More
"I know the buy sell figures have a degree of inaccuracy but not to the extent of 2-3 buys to each sell. For the third day running there have been 2-3 buys for each sell, and for the third day running Voda has fallen." ============================================ Hi Toff,
I see your point, but you'd be surprised how this is common for most FTSE stocks. But it’s nigh to impossible to manipulate large volume FTSE stocks, which are traded both ways by big players, including… Read More
I don't understand all the mechanisms that are used to manipulate stocks, but I do agree that big players can manipulate a stocks valuation.I understand the side of the argument that points out a heavily traded stock would seem impossible to manipulate, but with algorithmic trading programs completing multiple trades, of a relatively small quantity of shares, could a player potentially drive a stock up, or down? They would probably have to be careful to avoid a cartel like situation, by not… Read More
This doesn't feel like a correction, barring any massive unforeseen macro event. Feels more like a pause to me and even if the markets do correct, will it just be a blip in the bull market? Corrections are nice if you can time them, but they aren't the end of the world if you get caught, Nobody seems to be suggesting that we are heading into a bear market either. If the worst did happen, then it's better to be invested in a strong dividend paying company with assets to back up the valuation.
