I thought to watch the share price action as a result of announcements.
To my surprise, the share price action was often different to what I expected.
What I have concluded is that the announcement is not key afterall.
Big difference ...
As an investor you buy on the value/growth of a company.
An announcement should be a catalyst or trigger.
As a trader you buy on a pattern (human behaviour) in Share Price Action.
No announcement required!
Hence the surprise!!
So in answer to your question:
Investors should find out about traders and how much influence they have!
The Price of the underlying is all important and yet somewhat irrelevant. as are most announcements when taken as singularity's...announcements should be looked at as pages of a book, telling the story of XYZ...and then there's the bigger narrative of sentiment.
GRY is an empty book, no content just a nice back cover write up that shows some potential...and when you look inside you see that there's nothing there, its a work in progress.
