General View on Financial Market Trends by Sean Kemery

(Mr. Sean Kemery) The purpose of an economic research report is to make use of data and information gathered through economics and economic research and help analysts and experts in the field structure their discussions and decisions regarding all issues relevant to trading or global markets, to certain industries or commodities or even capital markets. However, in order for the efforts to be truly effective, a strong knowledge of the financial market trends is necessary as well. The market trend is a financial market's tendency to move in one direction or another throughout a specific period of time. Depending on this period, there are three types of trends, secular, primary and secondary. It is of great importance for traders and people doing business within the field to identify the market trends, which is why there are many tools that can be used to that extent. Technical analysis is the most popular one and presents trends as predictable price tendencies that vary over time.

The first of the financial market trends, the secular one, refers to a long term tendency, between 5 and 25 years and it is generally made up of several primary trends. Apart from this division depending on time periods, financial market trends can also be sectioned off according to vertical direction into upward markets, also called bull markets, and downward market trends, also called bear markets. A secular bear market does not mean that for the last 25 years the market only registered downward evolution, but that the market is made up of larger bear markets, while having smaller bull markets. Secular bear markets happen when the prices of goods within all sectors of a market fall for a long period of time and the commodity isn't registering demand anymore. The economic research report can be construed to identify this type of happenings, as well as to provide currency forecasts, investment strategies and developments, commentary on issues regarding the status of financial markets and many more. Moreover, the economic research report can have a daily frequency or it can be weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or occasional.

Secondary financial market trends are more short term, referring to a few weeks or maybe a few months. The most commonly known type of secondary trend is the market correction, which means that the prices of goods within a market register a 5 to 20% decline in a short period of time. The decline, however, is not large enough to be regarded as a bear market. The primary trend applies to tendencies that have broad support in all or most of the market sectors for at least on year's time. Although people often use expressions like such, it is impossible, by definition, for a market to have more buyers than sellers, as every market balances them. However, since there are two types of people dealing on financial markets, investors and traders, one buying one selling, having knowledge and understanding of the market trends proves really helpful and profitable. Although there are many indicators that help both investors and traders read market trends, consumer behavior is a vital influence on a market, a more unpredictable one, together with technology.
