What Drives the Stock Price Movements?
Selecting stocks is a challenging task amid highly volatile financial markets. Stock markets often depend upon the sentiments of the market participants, and the two powerful emotions that govern their behavior include greed and fear. Evolving fundamentals and macro-economic factors such as GDP growth, social and political stability, inflation, currency, and interest rates also influence the stock prices, which move up and down creating an identifiable price pattern. Typically, technical analysis is a way to gauge and benefit from these repeated patterns in a short time horizon.
Notably, the FTSE All-Share Index which is an aggregation of the FTSE 350 Index and the FTSE SmallCap Index yielded an overall return of -10.92% over the past one-year, and a YTD return of -14.47% till mid-November 2020 (Source: Refinitiv).To gauge price trends and benefit from them, Kalkine’s technical analysis report developed after deep-research and backtesting by a team of qualified technical experts engaged in quantitative research might be of help.
