Volatility then mortality
- Only make money when there’s volatility…
- Watch for unexpected shocking news
- A major news announcement will spook the markets
Volatility then mortality is the scope of this prediction about our stock market. The stock market is rolling in waves. The three major indices dropped a little below the lows earlier this month. However, it appears that between now and the end of the year these waves will continue to be played by those manipulating the markets through program trading.
As these waves get bigger and the dips fall lower that just allows for more volatility People manipulating the markets up and down can only make money when there’s volatility. Too much of the time markets have too little volatility and just seem stagnate and move sideways.
Watch for unexpected shocking news that will move the markets one way or the other. If it’s terrorist-related you will see the markets dip once again. Watch for a bottom when the news stops talking about that incident and play the bounce. If the news is positive, especially in the NASDAQ stocks, ride the excitement up for no more than one week.
Allow the initial announcement to get more attention and the single investors start moving in – that’s the sign to get out and take your profits even though you may leave a little on the table. We see these quick ups and downs until the first of January 2015 when a major news announcement will spook the markets and people will start pulling out.

QUESTION: How can readers best apply this information to their lives right now?
ANSWER: Don’t just listen to the news coming from the U.S.. Listen to news casts from all over the world before you invest.
COMMENTARY: Paying close attention to rumors can position you to take some quick profits. Listen for rumors in the technology sector and go long on the underground “hype” and also listen to international rumors that could move the markets in general. The international rumors most likely will move the markets down. The more you do this, the better you will get at identifying what kind of rumors move markets which way. If you don’t have time to monitor a lot of web sites, establish Google Alerts for the keywords you look for and let Google do the work for you. Never go “all in” as rumors could be planted to get people in and the big money then gets out. Move in gradually, risking no more than a third of your speculation money on the first move. Then add to your position, taking profits at disciplined exit points. Get greedy and you’ll end up needy.
