Event Details Add to Calendar

Dr. Peterson demonstrates how information flow drives price patterns in Asian equity and currency markets (China, Japan, Singapore, and Hong Kong) utilizing a proprietary data set. Positive news leads to strong monthly and yearly stock price momentum in Asian Stocks. Media sentiment typically turns down before major bear markets begin, giving investors time to exit in advance of the selloffs. Learn the themes driving asset prices in Asian markets.
