Low volume sets the range of pricing volatility as daily turnover is weak

A lack of liquidity causes wild volatility

I focus on indication analysis; an indication can be a development of almost any kind. Specifically, it may be a confirmed fact, a possible fact, or an absence of “something”, a fragment of information or even an observation. The sole provision is that it provides insight to provide some vision into a likely course of action.


The take-away, don’t dwell on what’s happened - it will reverse as macro conditions revererate and markets react to the oversold conditions ...follow RMi’s lesson of investing in those who guide and then meet short-term expectation



What I didn’t get to publish for a rash of circumstances on Friday a.m. …


From Thursday’s evening post, “short-term fear has battered the cell and gene therapy sector. The NASDAQ is also down more than -2% this month. Where is the news to react to other than volatility and macro risk as investors remain on edge over the China trade conflict along with Fed’s monetary policy?”

•             The NASDAQ was down -20.08 or -0.25% to 8,000.13;

•             The IBB closed down -0.82% while the XBI also closed down -1.97%;

•             The close was negative with an A/D Line of 9/33 and 1 flat and 2 acquired;

•             The range of the 9 upside was +0.67% (AGTC) to +4.29% (FIXX) while the 33 downside ranged from -0.02% (ONCE) to -8.14% (XON);

•             3 out of the 9 upside had higher than the 3 month average volume;

•             4 out of the 33 downside had higher than the 3 month average volume;
