By MATTHEW RAYMOND | MARYLAND A day of high volatility could lead to some traders buying or selling stocks, which could help boost the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
The market is also likely to be a little more bearish on Friday than usual.
It was the first day of trading in the Dow’s 52-week average since May 3.
It has already lost more than 20% of its value since the start of the year.
“The Dow has seen a number of changes in the past couple of days.
It’s now trending lower, and the market is very bearish,” said Stephen Fink, chief investment officer at BNY Mellon Asset Management in New York.
“But we don’t have to wait until Friday to make a move.”
Investors are expected to buy stocks in anticipation of a stronger economic recovery.
A weaker economy would be good news for many people looking to make quick profit on a stock buyback or other stock-buying activity.
However, it could also be a bad idea.
The Dow is the world’s biggest index.
If stocks go lower, they could push prices down even further.
The Nasdaq composite index fell 2.5%, and the S&P 500 lost 2.3%.
For a short-term gain, the S.&=amp;d.
and P.>=amp, the Dow and S.=amp&, could help the Dow climb more than 6%.
But it could lose as much as 8% in a matter of days, experts say.
For a long-term drop, investors should wait until stocks start to rise again before taking any action.
This means that the Dow could gain about 7.5% on Friday.
“It’s just a matter a matter whether or not it gets worse,” said Scott Pomerantz, chief market strategist at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz in New Jersey.
Investors are usually willing to take a big risk on stocks when the market dips, but the stock market is notoriously volatile.
“Investors tend to take the short-to-medium-term view.
The longer-term outlook is that it’s more important to hold on to your cash, but it’s also a better idea to hold onto your options,” he said.
“If you do it right, the market could go up in a hurry.”
Investors have been waiting to buy shares in anticipation for the Dow to hit another all-time high, according to Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics.
Investors were buying stocks at record highs in 2015 as the economy started to recover.
The S&s index, which measures the Semiconductor Association of America’s performance in the Southeastern U.S., gained about 7% last week.
But on Friday, the index fell nearly 6%.
“The stock market will likely continue to get more expensive, and that could drive the S and P down further, making the market less affordable for people who don’t want to wait on it to reach a new all-Time high,” said Zandi.
