#1: Do Stocks go down or up faster?

Posted on 2006-03-12 12:07:56 by 6ftplus

I was wondering if there is evidence (web-site, publications, books) to
find out if stocks go up or down faster. I tend to think they go down
faster? Any one know? Thanks.

When you are long, they go down faster......

When you are short, they go up faster......

Down is the faster direction. You can confirm for yourself by looking
at technical charts. Which is not to say Blash's answer is not without
reason.

One thing that is true, if the stocks go down say, 20%, they have to go
up more (like 25%) to get back to where they were.

Evidence you ask?
You can find lots of books and papers on something called Beta factor
or multiple. That is a measure of how a stock price moves in relation
to a stock index. There are also valuation models which attempt to
calculate the reaction of a stock price in relation to various events.
Some people believe in the efficency of the stock market and you can
find lots of "evidence" on that subject. Each looks at the movement
and/or price adjustment but not one way or another?

And take over offers?

Rate of price change is called volatility and does not matter which
direction.

Whcih is the fallacy of percentages.
Down 5 and up 5 is the same amount of money
I spend money, not percentages
