Investors are Unsure How to React (Brief Analysis) – GoDaddy Inc (NYSE: GDDY)

U.S. stocks slipped in late trading on Wednesday, capping two days of volatile trading following a rout that began on Friday.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 19.42, or less than 0.1 percent, to 24,893.34. The index fell in the last half-hour of trading after rising earlier in the session. The S&P 500 index fell 13.48, or 0.5 percent, to 2,681.66. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite index slipped almost 1 percent.

The Dow fell sharply on Friday and Monday, erasing the market’s gains for 2018. On Tuesday, stocks opened sharply lower before recovering slightly and rebounding in late trading.

The volatile trading session on Tuesday followed a two-day rout that wiped out the year’s gains. Investors and analysts are speculating whether the market’s wild ride indicates the beginning of a correction, which is a decline of 10 percent, or may be a temporary pullback. The decline was overdue, according to David J. Kostin, chief U.S. equity strategist, at Goldman Sachs.

“History suggested the S&P 500 was overdue for a pullback: 404 trading days had elapsed since the market last experienced a 5 percent drawdown, the longest stretch of time in nearly 90 years!” Kostin wrote in a research note earlier this week. “Since 1929, pullbacks of 5 percent have occurred after 92 days, on average.” (Source: CBS News)

Top Pick for Thursday: GoDaddy Inc (NYSE: GDDY)

A total of 1,689,490 shares exchanged hands during the intra-day trade contrast with its average trading volume of 1.37M shares, while its relative volume stands at 1.23. Relative volume is the comparison of current volume to average volume for the same time of day, and it’s displayed as a ratio. If RVOL is less than 1 it is not In Play on this trading day and Investors may decide not to trade it.  If RVOL is above 2 it is In Play and this is more evidence Investors ought to be in the name.  When stocks are *very* In Play one can see a RVOL of 5 and above.  The higher the RVOL the more In Play the stock is.

Day traders strive to make money by exploiting minute price movements in individual assets (usually stocks, though currencies, futures, and options are traded as well), usually leveraging large amounts of capital to do so, therefore they trade on Stocks in Play. In Play Stocks are volatile enough to produce good risk and reward trading opportunities for both bull and bear traders intraday. Most company stocks have very little volatility. They generally move extremely slowly and they only produce big price swings when the company produces good or bad trading results, which may only happen a couple of times a year at best.

In deciding what to focus on – in a stock, say – a typical day trader looks for three things: liquidity, volatility and trading volume. Liquidity allows an investor to enter and exit a stock at a good price (i.e. tight spreads, or the difference between the bid and ask price of a stock, and low slippage, or the difference between the predictable price of a trade and the actual price). If a stock does not have good liquidity then it may take some time before a broker is able to negotiate a deal to buy or sell a stock and the broker may not be able to get the sell or buy price that the trader is looking for. This is a problem for day traders and it could mean the difference between a profitable and non-profitable trade.

Traders have different rules for what constitutes liquidity and a good guide is the volume of trades and volume of shares that are traded each day. 100,000 shares traded per day would be a minimum for most traders and some require 1,000,000.

Trading volume is a gauge of how many times a stock is bought and sold in a given time period (most commonly, within a day of trading, known as the average daily trading volume – ADTV). A high degree of volume indicates a lot of interest in a stock. Often, a boost in the volume of a stock is a harbinger of a price jump, either up or down.

Volatility is simply a measure of the predictable daily price range—the range in which a day trader operates. More volatility means greater profit or loss. After a recent check, GoDaddy Inc (NYSE: GDDY) stock is found to be 3.21% volatile for the week, while 2.00% volatility is recorded for the month.
