Yes, Potnoodle. Just after reading your post, I happened to see an article on Marketwatch :-

"Financials led a decline that spread across every sector, though volume lightened considerably. Traders

said those conditions paved the way for additional volatility late in the day as a relatively small number of

participants had an outsized effect on the major averages. "

Hope this helps,

PN

i think it was because the sellers outnumbered the buyers

But I thought that prices always go up - is this not the Universal Fundamental of all transactions

in the known Cosmos ???

no the charts always go up, you just need a monitor that turns through 180 degrees and you can have an eternally performing share portfolio

I find that, after a bad day trading, several glasses of wine will make the monitor turn through 90 degrees.

Doesn't do much for the graphs and charts - but it feels nice.

1% down so that should be interesting on the FTSE in the morning.

Only if Asia doesn't read this thread and realises it was a glitch on low volume trading.....

So... here goes....

Cantonese first :-

That just doesn't do it anymore for me I'm afraid.

I'm told you can spice things up by momentarily cutting off the breath supply,

but best not to do it when alone.

Fibonacci (Who he?) Points to DOW 8,500

http://blogs.forbes.com/investor/2010/05/24/fibonacci-points-to-dow-8500/

Most stock market strategists are calling the stock market decline off the April 26th highs as a typical 10% correction in a bull market that began in March 2009. I disagree! I say that we are beginning the second leg of a multi-year bear market that began in October 2007 with the Dow failing to stay above 14,000.

The causes for the second leg of the bear market are the same as what began the first leg: weakness in the housing market and continued problems in the banking system. Leading the multi-year bear market was a peak in the home builders in July 2005, which was followed by a peak in community banks at the end of 2006, and then the regional banks in February 2007. Even so, the Dow continued to move higher as I defended my bearish market call, “You can’t have a bull market in stocks with a bear market in financials”.

And then there is more at the link...

Judging by recent days most shares will suddenly spike up immediately after tanking.

Good for traders shifting huge sums and brokers.

Sh1t for small time traders.

I hate the market when its in this mood - virtually impossible to judge when to buy or sell.

Still the big boys must be in the same position now that insider trading is illegal and traders are properly regulated and all. <_<

Volatility is excellent as long as your on the right side of it! Guaranteed stops a must For
