Market Timing

Business / Taxes / Market Timing: Market timing means trying to anticipate the point at which a market has hit, or is about to hit, a high or low turning point, based on historical patterns, technical analysis, or other factors. Market timers try to buy as the market turns up and sell before the market turns down. It’s the anticipated change in direction rather than the amount of time that passes between those changes that’s significant for these investors. The term is sometimes used in a negative sense to refer to a trading strategy that aims for quick profits by taking advantage of short-term changes in securities’ prices. Market timers, sometimes known as day traders, trade electronically. They try to buy low and sell high by taking advantage of second-to-second or minute-to-minute changes in the financial marketplace. They base decisions on information such as a forecast on interest rates or a sell-off in a particular market sector.
