What do people think will happen to the price action of stocks and the value of the USD if we go through a depression like period. Will the volume dry up and stock movements become extremely volatile due to the lack of liquidity? Also, for those that trade outside the US, might other markets have to be considered because of the dollars anticipated decline into oblivion. But are the best stock exchanges with the most predicable price action not the NYSE and Nasdaq? Does anyone have any experience trading stocks on other exchanges around the world? What is it like - is it similar? Are these thoughts irrational?
