The world is sinking in fear and Indian markets also no exception. Panic is everywhere right from stock markets, commodities, currencies even bitcoins. Every asset class is sinking down.
Nifty futures on Thursday broken June 2017 low and crashed almost -8.7% by the close. And other world markets are literally crashed by more than 7%
These are the time one has to get back to the basics especially when things are not happening in your favor. The key mantra is “one step at a time”. Positioning is the first thing a trader has to focus on sustainable high volatile markets.
Also learn during high volatile times how you have to position yourself during a high volatile market which is very different from low volatile markets. High volatile markets are driven by extreme greed or extreme fear. However low volatile markets are calm and soothing markets with a little surprise around the open.
Another weird thing about this crash is that markets are opening down with gaps and US markets are hitting circuits very frequently when never happened even during the 2008 crash. Current swing has almost 5 gaps and in any gap down likely then the current swing has 6th gap open which is kind of a rare occurrence from a trading point of view.
However, this crash brings a lot of memories, pain, money, happiness, fear, greed and a lot many things among the traders/investors and that changes the dynamics of the markets and even changes the trading style of many traders.
Whatever it may be. With the current ongoing Corona Virus fears I have one thing to say.
“Be Safe! Trade Safe! “
