Moving average - the hallmark of smart investors for effective returns. What is it?
Never try to catch a falling knife The catchphrase “Never try to catch a falling knife” means that a stock or index should not be bought while it is falling but one should wait until it bounces off its lows & starts an upward trend before buying it. Picking such stocks at the near bottom can result in a massive gain. However, entering these companies at the wrong time may lead to a disaster. There are cases when these stocks never rebounded to the original price for decades since they started falling. To avoid falling knife stocks, every keen-eyed investor and trader in a financial market makes his or her earnings by conducting intensive research and utilising crucial markers before every transaction. One such significant indicator, used by a variety of market participants, is the Moving Average. The Moving Average is a quick, straightforward and effective means for traders to develop an understanding of the current market trends.
