What to look for when the market gets volatile. (Thread)

The first thing you should be on the lookout for is tight price action in leadership names. During corrective markets, liquidity is low as market participants take a step back due to uncertainty.

So, let’s get a clear understanding of how and why this is so important and what this might look like behind the scenes.
