    Tomorrow is the 3rd Friday of September which marks the quadruple witching whereby all four contracts ( stock option,single stock futures,stock index futures and stock index options )expires on the same day .

Quadruple witching usually sees a heavier volume of trading , so will it be Chaos as usual?   submitted by   /u/ThingsILongThroatFor [link]   [comments]

  5. Quadruple Witching (13/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    As the title states, quadruple witching is next Fri, March 19th. For those that have more experience in this then myself, what is the general perception of quad witching and are you guys taking any actions to reduce your risk? I've read these days it's not as volatile as it used to be since there are more weekly options that expire as opposed to just the third Friday of every month. I have quite a few 60+ DTE options and a few leaps and wasn't sure if I should close some positions and hold onto the cash or just let them be. Thanks   submitted by   /u/jeho187 [link]   [comments]

  6. Is the dip over (19/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    So I heard that today is the quadruple witching day whatever you want to call it and it’s 1 out of the 4 most volatile day of the year (correct me if I’m wrong) The market been dipping since the day after Jerome Powell spoken, but I don’t know if there’s even a correlation between that. If anyone knows anything about the stock market please explain why it is dropping so damn much, I just got into stock market 3 months ago and it been down down down from all the tech sell off. Is it over, if not how much more of losing before we see a green market all over again? During this time should we average down the share or just wait patiently until the market recover then buy more?   submitted by   /u/Ovisa [link]   [comments]

  22. Do market orders affect a stocks price? (04/09/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    If we had a hypothetical stock that traders only submitted market orders to, no limit orders or orders of any other type, would the stock still move? I understand that stocks move based on traders agreeing to trade at higher or lower prices, but if traders only ever submitted market orders, would price always stay the same or would the demand on either side of the market make the price go up and down?

  34. How to buy/sell <100 shares on Tokyo stock market? (15/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I own 95 stocks of Nintendo on the Tokyo stock market (7974.T), worth some 50000 USD. I actually bought these stocks on the Frankfurt market, back in 2006, but when I switched banks and had the stocks transferred to a new account, someone must have switched them to Tokyo stocks without me noticing - until now. I can&#39;t sell these stocks because Tokyo only works with multiple of 100 stocks. I&#39;ve tried buying 5 extra stocks, bidding 20% more than current market price, but even that order remains hanging for two weeks now. Does anyone have any idea how I can sell my stocks, or better yet, buy 5 extra stocks so I have 100 and can sell them all when I want? The bank doesn&#39;t want to help, and I can&#39;t deduce now who switched my Frankfurt stock to Tokyo stock. &#32; submitted by &#32; /u/krommenaas [link] &#32; [comments]

  40. Predicting a stock market crash - A self-fulfilling prophecy? (22/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    The current discussion of a potential market crash has me wondering if when a lot of people anticipate a crash in the next time the possibility of one actually happen can increase. Falling stock prices can lead to quick thoughts about a potential crash and even more selling resulting in a crash. I know Fundamentals are becoming less and less important if we look at Tesla or thousands of new Biotech stocks but cant this situation partly be justified by a change of trader philosophy. Increasing retail investors and more coverage of the stock market (mostly due to GME) has led mainly amateur traders to buy some stocks because they like them, they see this company becoming useful in the future, even if numbers are mediocre at best. Due to the fearmongering of a stock market crash many investors and traders are becoming more sensitive to volatility and are preparing themselves. What is your opinion?
