Income Gap Hindering Trading Volumes

Recently, there has been a decent amount of coverage on the lack of volume within the trading markets. The consensus theory is that there is a lot of money sitting on the sidelines waiting for the right moment to invest. The conversation also suggests that the money is not yet invested because there is a lack of regulation direction. That probably is correct. But does the income gap have a part in this equation?

The fact that the rich have more to invest in the stock market and don't even while balance sheets and profits have never been better should be an indication that something is amiss. The extra money being made by the rich is going into safer instruments (i.e. bonds) than stocks because the money doesn't need to be invested at a level of risk normally associated with equities. Combine this with a growing number of families that lack the income to invest, and you might have lower volumes.

Having a lower volume right now is not good. But when the rich don't need to and the rest can't, what else is supposed to happen?

Thats an interesting post. Nobody would ever have thought of trading volume having anything at all to do with wealth inequality.

She was so proficient; I'd bet she could get him to recite the Gettysburg Address. Over exercising your puppy before his bones is fully developed will only give him problems as he gets older in age. Teach him it's OK to bite on his
toys, but not a human hand or foot. Be sure to have the puppy sit when another dog is
approaching. Let me know if I can be of help to you with your beloved pets ' no question too large or small.
