How To Benefit From Stock Market Volatility

Jul 24, 2008
Most investors shun the stock markets as soon as they start going down hill or they hold onto their stocks hoping in vain to sell the stocks when they will rise. Well you can certainly hold the stocks but then you will not have any cash to buy stocks when they are low.

The primary lesson for investors is that they have to move fast when the market shows some trends. There are a set of investors who love and thrive on this volatility of the market. There is lots of money to be made in this stock volatility.

Explained in simple terms stock market volatility means that the movement of the market cannot be predicted as going upwards or downwards. Any small piece of information can send it northwards or southwards for a while. The investors do not have any clear picture of the market trend. In a volatile market the market can move up by several hundred pints and in a day and can also come down the same day after seeing that surge. A layman investor will stay away from such volatility fearing that he will lose his money.

Seasoned investors usually rub their hands in glee at such a market. They place huge bets when the market is going downwards and then sell them when the market moves upwards. The trick of the trade here is that they do so within that given day itself. They do not hold the stock for large amounts of time. Many would argue that day traders are usually in a better position to make money off from the market volatility. This is true to some extent but not entirely true.

Long term investors who swear by the buy and hold strategy also can make money in the volatile markets by looking at stocks which are being hammered. In a volatile market there is no rhyme or reason for the stocks to be hammered so there are picks available at decent prices with strong fundamentals.

Stock market is all about taking risk and making money. So if you wish to sit at the sidelines and watch then you should not park your money in the stock market. Instead, a better option would be mutual funds which will help you get that piece of mind and risk free returns. Though the returns would not be as high as stock market returns. Enjoy the stock market returns in the volatile market and make the best use of any given opportunity.
