In this concise eBook Paul Azzopardi examines: - Why markets rise slowly but fall sharply - Why rises occur with low volatility but falls are volatile In discovering the answers to these questions, and understanding more about the way prices move, investors will learn more about market behviour and be better able to judge what markets will do in the future. This is important knowledge for successful investors!
