What's Going on Stock Market?


For the past few weeks, my portfolio isn't looking very good. It is like a blood bath on my screen. All is turning to red (loss) and yes, it is a bad news. But you know what? I am not really worried about it. Yes I am a bit concern but I have this inner confidence that says to me that everything will be alright. Oh well, the status update from one of my stock advisers (naks!) added an assurance that time will come that it will be all green (gain) and with Him, it's alright to fall sometimes because there is no way but up. Neil also said that this is where men separates from the boys and that only the brave ones survives and makes money.


I'm not really a technical analyst or very keen in checking the performance of my stocks. I just love reading news and forums and of course with the help of some friends and financial experts, I can choose the stock where I will invest. Well enough of the money matters; I researched on some probable causes why this is happening in the stock market. I have enumerated some reasons:

  1. Profit. The stock exchange index has reached to record breaking points and for many investors, it is a very good thing and it also means profit. Many investors are taking advantage of the percentage of gain from their portfolio so they were probably excited in taking in more money (I admit I am one of them haha)
  2. Foreign Investors. I also read and heard that many foreign investors are pulling out their money and transferring it to the recovering economy of the US. It means lesser investment in our part and it is a huge part in the gradually decreasing of the index point. Is there a way that the government should lessen the foreigner's privilege in getting stocks in our country? 
  3. Current News. I think that Serendra explosion thing have contributed to this. There was a huge concern that the cause was a bomb. This news spreaded wrongly as the investigation results did not come in a faster way. The terrorism news is very bad in a country and can whisper negative impact to neighboring countries, so bad means negative and negative means lower index points.
  4. Panic. Of course if your profit is slowly negating, you might want to sell your stocks just to avoid a total loss. My officemate sold his stocks in a panic mode even if it was a loss. Many of us are looking into a negative perspective that leads us to grab the profit immediately rather than checking the probable positive outcome in the near future. There is no shortcut in success.

Again, I am no expert in this thing and I still consider myself as a beginner in this field and I am sure there are more reasons why this is happening. It is a good thing that we are aware of these things rather than be ignorant to what's happening in the economy. It can also give us hope and pointing our eyes only to positive results. Well life isn't exciting without risks, just be prepared to what will be the result is, whether gain or loss.
