Why Financial Markets Rise Slowly but Fall Sharply

Analysing market behaviour with behavioural finance

By Paul V. Azzopardi

Jacket text

It comes as a surprise to many beginning investors that financial markets do not go down in the same way they go up – in other words, markets behave one way when prices are rising and in a very different way when they are falling.

In this concise eBook Paul Azzopardi examines:

– Why markets rise slowly but fall sharply
– Why rises occur with low volatility but falls are volatile

In discovering the answers to these questions, and understanding more about the way prices move, investors will learn more about market behviour and be better able to judge what markets will do in the future. This is important knowledge for successful investors!
