The stock market is like a wobbly boxer – is up, it’s down, it gets back up only to get knocked back down again and again.
Up 200 points one day, down 300 the next, up a little the next, and then down again with a thud. How could you not have ulcers trying to time the market? Just watching it and listening to the reasons and excuses as to why it’s acting the way it is makes you scratch your head and wonder.
Who exactly is making it go up and down so much? It’s not individual investors. They are losing much money if they are trying to time such a volatile market. The only way huge traders are making money in the market is through manipulating paper trades so quickly they can move the markets anyway they want capturing the difference in the middle. It’s all done so fast by such powerful entities in the market that the average investor doesn’t even have a chance, much less understand it.
Our advice is to keep out of such a volatile situation because one day, just when you thought you had it timed correctly as it was going up, you will receive the knockout punch that puts you down for the count.
