Football festival, global stock market will fall points?

Trading volume fell sharply

During the 2010 World Cup held in South Africa, many matches were played at the same time as the trading hours of many stock markets around the world. According to ECB statistics, there are 15 large stock markets including: Germany, England, France, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Netherlands, America, South Africa, Argentina, etc., there are 3 points worth Note the following:

(1) In the market of some countries, for every game with a national team (such as England, France) participating, the average number of orders reduced by 45%, the volume of trading shares decreased by 55%. .

(2) The market is affected by the matches. Specifically, after a match, each country’s stock index fell an average of 5%. This reduction was statistically significant at lunchtime after the morning session, and many investors did not pay attention.

(3) The global stock market’s temperature is contrary to the World Cup matches, in more than 20% of the time the games are played, global stocks fall. Investors seem to be willing to spend more money on alcohol and popcorn than focus on price lists during this time.

Another 2007 study also showed that during the World Cup, a defeat of the national team could make that national stock market drop sharply the next day.

Slight increases in the stock market of the winning country

After the World Cup, markets with national teams that have won the championship have always gained points since 1974. The only external case for Brazil in 2002, the rest of those markets rose immediately after that to the average. 3.5% and maintained for 3 months.

The stock market of the losing country lost points

In the Goldman Sachs report, 7 out of 9 stock markets of the losers in the final also suffered a “sharp decline” with an average decrease of 5.6% in the following three months.

Another study, entitled ‘Love for Sport and Profit from Securities’, lists statistics from 1100 matches and stock market yields of 39 countries, showing that each team has a In the qualifying round, the country’s stock market fell 0.5% the next day.

There are no serious consequences for the value of stocks or the country’s economy, but simply the mood of investors affected. That’s why the World Cup defeats have more serious consequences than the European Championship or other sports such as baseball, basketball, cricket, rugby … Especially, the most serious impact in “crazy football” countries like Argentina, Brazil, England, France, Germany, Italy and Spain.

The US market is always down after every World Cup

A study by Israeli experts said the average post-World Cup US stock market plunged 2.6%, calculated over 14 of the last 15 World Cups. This may seem unusual, because Americans prefer rugby football. However, one-third of transactions on the US stock market are carried out by foreign investors. So after every World Cup round, with the number of national teams going up, there are some foreign investors sad.

Movements of stocks are very different on stock exchanges

Statistics on STMicroelectronics (STM) shares traded on Italian and French stock exchanges showed different up / down trends of this stock on both exchanges when impacted by football matches.

Normally, a firm’s stock will have the same direction of increase / decrease on international exchanges. However, in the 2-1 World Cup victory against South Africa, STM shares fell sharply every time South Africa scored but did not happen in the Italian market. Similarly, after Italy lost to Slovakia, STM slumped on the Milan stock exchange, but not in Paris.

Facebook plans to release GlobalCoin cryptocurrency in 2020

Facebook’s virtual money is expected to help users pay across borders safely and at a cheap cost without a bank account,.. .

According to BBC sources, Facebook plans to release its own cryptocurrency called GlobalCoin in the first quarter of 2020, after internal testing later this year. This cryptocurrency will be released in dozens of countries around the world, helping users to make payment transactions securely and at cheaper costs without having a bank account.

To be able to launch, this virtual money will need to overcome many technical and logical barriers. Last month, Facebook’s chief executive Mark Zuckerberg met with central bank governor Mark Carney to discuss the opportunities and risks of issuing virtual currency. Facebook also works with the US Treasury and money transfer companies like Western Union, to discuss legal and operational issues related to crypto.

Facebook plans to release cryptocurrency for the first time at the end of last year. Accordingly, Facebook will partner with banks and brokers to allow users to convert dollars and other legal currencies into virtual currency. ? Facebook is also negotiating with online providers to accept this virtual currency, in exchange for lower transaction costs.

In March, Barclays’ Internet analyst Ross Sandler forecast GlobalCoin cryptocurrency could bring in revenue of up to $ 19 billion by 2021 in Facebook.

GlobalCoin marks Facebook’s second attempt at virtual currency, nearly 10 years later, Facebook Credits – cryptocurrency allows users to buy products on the system of this social network. Facebook Credits was “killed” after only 2 years of operation due to the failure of liquidity.

However, to launch GlobalCoin, Facebook has many problems to be solved in the context of the scandal of user data and regulations from authorities in recent years. The question posed by officials is how Facebook’s cryptocurrency will work and how the company will protect its customers and their personal information.

Information about GlobalCoin helped price many cryptocurrencies on the market increased on 24/5. Bitcoin rose 5% in value, trading at about $ 7,960, Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum copper both rose 7%, and Litecoin increased 11%.

Playing Stock and Golf

Art

Considering the level of “addiction”, people can be absent from the stock market for a few days, but a week without a busy three-day golf course is annoying. Asking about the golfers (golfers), I discovered a more shocking thing: only a small number of stockholders played golf but most golfers played securities and were very successful.

A standard Swing (swinging ball) is a smooth swinging action like an artist pulling a violin. The golf ball will only go far and precise with a speed swing swing, the whole body is completely relaxed but no oscillation deviates from the spin axis as the spine and head. If you only hit the ball by hand, you cannot become a golfer, because the art of playing with the ball requires a combination of the whole body and the senses. If you also believe that playing securities is an art then surely the golfers agree. You get the best performance on the field when the spirit is completely refreshing. You have a very high chance of investing in stocks if you feel comfortable in winning and losing.


Passion and patience

Rainy sun is a story of heaven, golfers (golfers) can be likened to a form of ascetic monks with their love of grass. They are ready to apply on their skin … tons of anti-skin peeling creams and so on from 12 noon to 5:30 pm, it rains and so on or wait until they can continue. Do you believe that most golfers are willing to take their clubs out of the house from 5 am or skip lunch to run to the yard? It is also hard to imagine that a professional and successful investor is lazy to read newspapers and find information, or find out how business theories apply on the stock market.
Lack of passion, a golfer never even managed to pass 3 – 6 months of death just to practice 10,000 balls, three times that number with ballless swing. If you play golf for 20 years, you have to give this sport the patience to study like an outsider who learns the first swing, 20 years is still a repeating swing. Many equestrian investors see flowers, they become losers, do not have a strong stance, always run the herd and say a catchphrase: price as …. When they suffer losses, they blame securities for gambling and do not give themselves another chance to become a successful investor.

A golfer wrote this: My first blow hit the ground, far away from the ball, causing my hand to feel electrocuted. The next blow also caused my hand to hurt terribly and the golf ball flew to the side, startling everyone to look back at me, looking uncomfortable. I thought, “This game is too hard.” But then after 10, 15 or 20 subsequent shots, I hit the ball – and with a quieter sound than the sound of the Ferrari F430, the small white ball sprang up. In the air, it floated in mid-air and flew 160 yards and landed on the ground, bouncing lightly on the grass.

To win, you must at least finish your destination

A new golfer can completely hit the ball beyond 170 yards with a 7, the professional golfers only reach 145-150 yards. Typically, a golfer after 1 year will have a shot to the shorter distance they have achieved when they first started, but in return is more accurate and stable.

In an ecstatic minute, an amateur golfer can finish a hole with a standard stroke (PAR), even a hole in the hole (hole in one – something Tiger Wood hasn’t done yet) but is broken many other holes. However, golf is a marathon art, you can excel in one third of the journey and then let it dive into the water again, bogged in a sand pit or around in the bush. No professional golfer didn’t double three times before a real swing and there was no lack of focus for one move. Each stroke is carefully estimated about tactics, ball directions, club type, wind direction, ball position …

People still don’t say greed and fear is the number one enemy of those stock players. To become a serious and successful investor, you must always win yourself. Want to learn the art of making money through stock, why don’t you try to take the stick to the yard and start hoeing.
