Aug 17, 2007
1. Prediction of the future

Real Pyschics would, without a doubt, help people investing in stocks. Much of investorsā and brokersā time is spent trying to predict what the market will do in the next few days to months. However, the process is not all speculative guessing. If one pays close attention, the market will actually indicate which way it is going. Knowing about predicting the market can greatly benefit anyone.

2. Direction of market

You can see how a stock might do by studying the market. Looking at the overall direction of the market will tell you about future trends. Most, if not all, stocks move with the market. If the stock market is experience a period of growth (a bull market) most stocks will steadily grow. If the stock market is in a decline (a bear market) most stocks will slowly lose value. There may be one day bumps here and there but the general trend will follow the flow of the market at large. To determine the direction of the market only two pieces of information are needed; price and volume. Price refers to the trend of prices of stocks. Volume refers to the amount of stocks being traded. When these two figures are put together it reveals whether there are more sellers in the market or there are more buyers.

3. Setting prices

To determine price, investors and brokers use the big three indicators: the Dow Jones Index, the S & P 500 and the NASDAQ. These indicators help investors and brokers determine whether the market is going to continue in the current trend or reverse course.

4. Discovering volume

The daily sales volume of the markets are frequently used to set understand volume. The daily sales volume is easily obtained from several websites online. If the market has experienced a high-volume day and prices are up (on the three indexes) then the market is up. Huge investors will frequently buy and boost markets under certain conditions.
