The Market Corner: The Month in Review "It’s the market Baby!"

By Filippo Lecchini


It’s the market Baby!


February brought the return of volatility that many have been predicting for quite some time. Too early to say if this is a correction or an isolated episode. And truth be told the market already shed over 8% from all-time high, which is not “officially” a correction, “at least 10%”, but is pretty close.

您好,波动性!再见,无聊!

亲爱的朋友们,

(T恤衫写着:波动性是你的朋友)


        昨晚我被一个我们清算的交易所在凌晨三点弄醒。不幸的是,虽然我们现在有值夜班的员工,并且他才应该是第一个被联系的人, 但是我还在他们的紧急联系人名单上。作为交易所的清算会员,每当市场存在巨大波动,交易中的每个方面都会比平时要多,比如更多的交易,更多的交易量,更多的客户和对系统产生的更多的压力,我们常常会收到“午夜”电话。


        是的,当我们失去多年的朋友波动性回归时,我们的行业已经从昏迷中苏醒并变得活跃起来。

Chairman of TOCOM New Year Message

In 2017, TOCOM rolled-out numerous initiatives that improved market convenience and grew our market's breadth. In March, we launched the Platinum Rolling Spot contract, which trades without maturity and is similar to the Gold Rolling Spot contract.

A Look at the First Three Weeks of Cboe Bitcoin Futures Trading

By Cboe

 

On December 11, 2017 Cboe Global Markets was the first exchange in the world to list futures based on bitcoin price levels.  As of the end of 2017 we have three weeks of trading activity to look at and so far the price action has been interesting.  We have experienced backwardation and contango with the relative pricing as well as seeing the distribution of volume and open interest being weighted toward the front month (January) contract.

来自总裁林美娟的一封信

新年决心


亲爱的朋友们,

 

        在我二十多岁且还是投资方面的新手时,当我问到买进股票的时机时,一位金融业的老兵给了我一个简单且合理的建议。他说:“我给不了你具体股票的建议,因为我没有对其做任何研究。然而,如果你在十二月买入任何一支股票,然后在来年一月卖出,你将会赚钱。”他进一步解释道:“市场在节假日期间会比较安静,而进入一月份当人们都回来工作时,他们对市场的预期都会保持乐观的态度,因此市场会随之上涨。”
 

 

        对标普指数月度图表进行快速的谷歌搜索便可以确认其真实性。我知道,你可能有着不同的观点。整个2017年,市场都在上涨,因此一月份买入应该要比十二月份买入的时机更好。那么,请你查看一下其他年份,看看这个理论是否还站得住脚。
