One would think this is a natural side effect of volatility.


The lack of the uptick rule! That is obviously the difference.


You guys rock, so creative. Good work.

so then to explain the market recovery from 2003 to 2007 despite what this chart shows, that would mean that there would be two up days where the advance was greater than the big down day that followed.

for example, Monday up 10, Tuesday up 10, Wednesday down 12. so you still get a net up 8. and the bull market continues despite a down day bigger than the last up day.

Though these fluctuations are frustrating, they also allow funds to create more alpha if they can closely monitor all of their assets as prices and fundamentals change and make trades accordingly. This is difficult for firms to do, however, since there is so much information and changes to keep track of. However, a hedge fund software company has created a solution. Alpha Theory allows funds to manage their portfolio in real-time so they can make trades to reflect changing prices, resulting in additional capital. The Alpha Theory site offers a great demo that every fund can learn from: https://www.alphatheory.com/demo.jsp
