We buy when the stock market shows strength. When we see weakness, we sell. Both events incur losses. What is happening？ In this article, we'll look at market behavior and how market patterns affect traders. If we can just keep a positive attitude, we'll be able to recognize market trends and generate income. something article will demonstrate how oversimplifying something is.
I focused on the SPY and Standard & Poors 500 Index equities trading above their 5- and 20-day moving averages while reviewing the last three years' worth of daily data. I segmented the data set into quartiles and specifically looked at what transpires after periods (top quartile) and (bottom quartile) breadth.
The following five days in SPY averaged a loss of -.14% when stocks trading above their five-day moving averages was in the top quartile (around 74+%). Keep in mind that a time when SPY increased by about 30% and the average daily return was +.20%. The following five days in SPY averaged a gain of +.57% when stocks trading above their five-day moving averages was in the bottom quartile (about less than 33%). In other words, regardless of attitude, trading after a five-day period cost a trader money. It is the scariest time to enter the market to buy equities, but doing so after five days of downturn was quite beneficial and more.
Examining average returns after 20 days of strength and weakness will now be done. The next 20 days in SPY losses of roughly -.31% on average when 20-day returns have been greatest (nearly 73% of equities trading above their 20-day moving averages).
This time period was +.79%. In contrast, the following 20 of +1.85% when 20-day returns are in their worst quartile (less than 37% of stocks are trading above their 20-day moving averages). Trading in losses for traders, while trading weakness produced better returns.
In other words, when on trend and momentum, traders tend to lose money because both great and weak returns will persist in the future. Stocks exhibit cyclical behavior. Markets typically exhibit momentum and trend when longer-term cycles are in control. In the short term, any reversal tendencies are outweighed by the upswing or downswing of a longer-term cycle. (Note how this makes it possible to predict market movement based on the interaction of various cycles. The market frequently disappoints traders' expectations. Humans have a tendency to extrapolate the future based on the past. This will eventually lead to a trader losing money, regardless of their psychology. Trendlines drawn and followed, breakouts taken, and waiting for “price confirmation” to enter market moves all result in losses over time. Our psychology is not the only factor undermining our trade. These are our presumptions.
