Do you agree stocks will crash after fed decision?

Discussion in 'Chit Chat' started by Option Trader, Aug 12, 2009.

  1. I believe interest rates will be left alone, stocks will go up over first few minutes to give enough chance to misguided people to buy in their wave of optimism.... then tank down!

    Do you agree?
  2. The people who know don't speak.:)

    my observations for the last 1.5 yrs is that US markets tend to follow the Shanghai mkts instead of the other way round but i'm sure there r plenty who would disagree /w me
  4. Yes
  5. just21


    Market rallies average of 1.4% on fed days since bear market started. Market may already have done that today.
  6. No way stocks will crash today. its going to be a non factor and choppy trade at best.

    I would suggest still being long stocks.

    If they do move rates, can be a game changer, but which way?, who knows.
  7. And from the time of the announcement onwards...? I personally believe it has been a very different picture.
  8. Are you currently in a short position ahead of this news?

  9. If what you are saying is the belief of most people (and I think it is the belief of most people), is precisely the reason I think it will tank. Remember, whenenver people buy, they have a counterparty who probably has more money, and now has a vested interest in the stock going the other way.
  10. I want to wait for an initial rally--then short!
