Fear and confidence are two of the most used words when it comes to the markets. This is no coincidence given that they the two most important drivers of the markets. Whilst trade account for some movement in the markets, it cannot be accountable for the larger violent movements.
Of course if a Canadian business owner needs to purchase materials from Japan the conversation of currency will register within the markets however this won’t be enough to drive price, not in the same way that fear can! Fear can absolutely destroy a market and once it takes hold only the bell or government intervention can stop it.
