If it finishes where it started today, and the volume is low, it's a good bet we're close to or have seen the bottom.
Of course nothing's certain or there wouldn't be any losers.

Have another good look later today.

It's not investing though, it's speculating.

Brexit dividend Confused
---------------------------------

Ehmm, no.

Over 70% of revenues generated by FTSE 100 companies are from outside UK - particularly eurozone companies.  That's why nowadays you have a correlating graphs between sterling rise = ftse fall and  sterling fall = ftse rise.

More complicated is that fact that the FTSE seems to have taken on as much of the characteristics of a gambling platform as  much as an investing oneShocked - despite protestations otherwise.

out of my depth here regarding these matters TBH

i do know many smaller buiseness owners in a variety of sectors , retail , catering etc

and one thing in common in last month is a sharp drop in revenue at a point in year that should show an upturn

which can only be attributed to virus and sharp drop in people traveling , i remember back when virus first broke many multinationals and oil industry voiced concern also

no expert but if you knew what you were doing you could get yourself a very nice anti post bet as long as you had no concerns over when the race would be run if you know what i mean

this coronavirus is not good for any economy. we've seen japan, chinese, usa, and now UK markets take a big dive in recent days and it's not going anywhere as long as people keep dying from this. many experts were predicting a US recession anyway, this may just be the start of something much bigger

surely you would be better investing smaller amounts daily as it falls and get the benefit of pound cost averaging rather than a 1 off lump sum.

Posters on here blaming Boris and brexit, keep taking the pills you psychos. Ftse fairing the best in a big sell off. As for "some experts predicting a US recession" they prats been saying that for over 10 years, Trump steadied the ship big time,even though  Dow and historical gains is a problem for those that understand the markets better than most.s+p adjusted a better way to look at the game imo. As for investing atm, prob not the worst move you could ever make if a long term invest is the goal,same as covid19,s victims most financial casualties will have underlying health probs innit. Natural cycle and weve been  at a crossroads with technology, habits, lifestyles, everything is changing, if you don't move with the times you get left behind. 68 was always on the cards imo, big question was why it never happened earlier, usa markets been running away with themselfs, again that's another question altogether. Stick to what you know, don't tip your toes in markets you know fvk all about.As for the complete wasterson here  whanking themselfs into a frenzie, open your eyes you cabbages.

Corona virus - really?

When people panic and sell their shares, where do the shares go?
Take yesterdays plunge, most of the FTSE losses came straight after the market opened early in the day on low volume. It wouldn't take much selling to achieve that.

The main sellers would be professionals, who then simply buy their stock back at the lower prices. Then do the same again.
Easy money, and that's how the market works all the way to the bottom.
That's happened on three out of the last five trading days.

The object of the exercise is the transfer of stock from weak holders who bought at higher prices, to the professionals who finish up with cheap stock on their hands, which they can eventually sell into the upturn which they choose as well.
Which is one way how markets work at all levels from individual stocks to entire markets.

Corona virus is simply an excuse for the transfer to get underway.
The FTSE100 is back to the same level as it was in late 2018, and knowing how markets like to observe support levels, many will be hoping that they've chosen that to put on the brake on this occasion.

Perhaps 1TP might care to look at the Dow Jones and Nikkei etc etc dropping similar amounts at exactlt the same time for the same reaons and explain to us instead why the Japanese stock market is having such a hissy fit about Boris's Brexit strategy. Go on. Take your time.

Timing the market is crucial; you don't need to know much else.

Who was buying the day after the general election in that high volume?  But more to the point who was selling during the euphoria, because there had to be heavy selling if the market didn't rise much on the day with all that volume?
I looked at is more than once and it didn't look like a buying climax, but it obviously was looking back.

The market makers and professionals don't mark the market down against themselves in falls like we've seen over the last week, they were offloading stock right up until the end of last week before they crashed the market on Monday.

Most people and that includes financial advisers haven't got a clue what's really going on.

The CDC warning of a pandemic and people saying that 40-70% of the worlds population might get it (with a mortality rate of 2%) ..that is certainly going to have some effects on the market. As to if it's scaremongering .. who knows. I'd imagine they'll roll out mass vacination. The conspiracy theorists won't take it, so, you know, swings and roundabouts.

We await with baited breath as you give a detailed explanation of why all the worlds stock markets, 2 months after Boris got in, decided to plunge due to Brexit.

I wonder what they'll do next with the markets?

I don't think they'll draw it out with a long sideways movement, which is designed to force even more people to sell. They're too greedy to wait for making money on a rise.
Anybody would think a nuclear war had started after looking at the chart.
