Good afternoon, everyone is concerned about what is happening in the world. If you follow the news about the fashion industry, it becomes clear why there were these fluctuations of the market .I don't think it's possible for someone to do this artificially.
Experts have warned that as a result of the collapse of the deal and the price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia, the volume of production may exceed market demand on a scale never seen before. The situation in the markets is complicated by the developing coronavirus epidemic in different countries , which puts national economies at risk.
You can gauge market volume by looking at traded volume under community outlook tab. I've been collecting data for 2 years about that. When i started traded volume was around 150 K lots. In 21. feb. this year it reached it max with 2 mil lots and then it started to drop. Traders were closing positions. Right now its been 3 weeks since that maximum and the volume is 680 K. Take a look at EUR/USD and USD/JPY on 21.feb when volume started to drop.
World markets in recent days have shown an extremely high incidence of coronaviruses and severe restrictions on the prevalence of infection.
The amplitude of fluctuations in stock markets is at record highs. The American 'fear index' (VIX) on Monday managed to update the highs in history. That is, this was not observed even in 2008. In just a couple of months, global stock markets lost a quarter of capitalization (according to MSCI ACWI).
