Manipulation of price movement
« on: September 27, 2017, 07:24:50 AM »
Hi all.

Currently doing a research. Is it possible to manipulate the price movement ? By this I mean traders, with serious funds, to somehow make the price of certain stock to go up / respectively go down ? Could you please share your thoughts ?

Yeah its easily done by big whales, for example during news release or major events. The favorite one is whipsaw what is especially maddening as even your right guess of direction compromised with involuntary market movement in opposite direction with the purpose of harvesting stops of small traders. Big whales have order flow at their disposal and love to trigger clustering of SL in order to get better entry and profound price action.

In stocks more likely.
Especially so-called "penny stocks" are famous with such movings.

You have to be a financial institution or a trader with truly major capital to make any kind of a dent.

Yes, it is relatively easy to be done, but only very big players are in position to do this, simply because you need to have  huge amount of money in order to move the market. The rest of us can only sit and watch. Although market manipulation is not legally allowed, it happens from time to time

Yes you can observe manipulation during news. It's called stop hunting and is often used by big banks. Somehow I learned this tactics and now follow it to make profit.

options are the way most manipulation takes place in FX

also these days trading algos for banks and hedge funds and auto price makers are not humans and sometimes over react to news or do not react at all - till the next day -- it is very unusual price movement

FX is a weird sort of thing - even though you are right - you can still be wrong -- this is simply due to the market factoring in things before they happen and taking profit after.

The famous quote says "markets can stay irrational longer than you have money in your account". This is truth is old as stock speculations.

No doubt it can be done especially on penny stocks. Every companies has its own market value and penny are relatively small. That's why there are pump and dump everywhere.
