MARKET OPENING PROCEDURE

  1. You mentioned that when the market opens, this is normally a time when the public trade and the Professional Fund Managers sit back and wait till I assume the market settles. The beginning of trading has always fascinated me by its volatility either bearish or bullish and I had never realised that it is people like me that cause it to be bullish or bearish. Would you estimate that the market takes about 1/3 of its trading time for the ordinary folk to have completed there trading and prices settle?
