3. Game theory ( tug of war between buyer & seller)

  • From where New Buying comes?
  • A. Since sentiments are mild negative, the Outside trader may not buy today. B. Trader's with short Position- mild chance for short covering today.
  • From where new selling come:
  • A. Outside trader-Mild new short selling expected from outside traders.
  • Will buyers buys on dips?:
  • On Fall- Since the Trend is up, There will be a higher number of buyers at the lower end which propels the market to go up from dips. Moreover, at dips sellers who wanted to sell has sold off. So buying on dips is the dominant strategy as More buyer and lack of seller at the bottom of uptrend market
  • Will Seller sell on rise?
