Tips for traders, 23 June 2020

Current condition


Recent upticks of COVID-19 patients in some regions like Europe and some new cases in China have increased the worry of investors. A second wave could mean a second lockdown. ٌesearchers are racing against the clock to find a vaccine as the speed of mutation has become an obstacle.

Fear has made money flow out of some risky assets and back to safety. This means the current situation might not be as good as what most people had thought. However, it seems that the outflow from risky assets has not been as aggressive as what happened in March.

This is likely to mean volatility: higher volatility generally means more chances to trade on smaller timeframes, other things being equal.
