Top 10 Market Reasons

[ Edited ]

It happens and probably more than we realize. So, when it's clear nobody knows why the market is doing what it's doing, all kinds of reasons are given. Some are hilarious. Some are so overused they are rubbed raw. But, there seems to be a few that bubble to the top. What are those reoccurring reasons that you always hear or read? I would be curious to build a "Top 10 Market Reason" list. I'll start with the one that I'm always given by traders and marketwatchers. What are yours?

 

1. Profit-taking

 

2.

 

3.

 

4.

 

5.

 

6.

 

7.

 

8.

 

9.

 

10.

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

It's a weather market today?  The "go to" excuse for ups and downs

Re: Top 10 Market Reasons

"The dollar is weaker(stronger) today and is moving the markets" is a good one.

Re: Top 10 Market Reasons

I think your "dollar is weaker" reason is given almost as much as "it's a weather" market. Doc, good to hear from you. How are you and your brother getting along with planting season this year? Are you bullish on the soybean market?

SouthWestOhio,

 

Your third reason reminds me of the tired phrase of, "A bull needs to be fed everyday".
