IS THE STOCK MARKET PREDICTABLE? | Efficient Market Hypothesis
www.SkyViewTrading.com Is the stock market predictable? Many would argue YES... But the Efficient Market Hypothesis says that it's impossible to “beat” the market because all current and relevant information is already factored into the stock price. Most traders defensively argue against this theory because if it were true, then that means they can’t outperform the overall market… So why even try? It is up to you to decide for yourself... We, on the other hand, are advocates of this theory that the markets are incredibly efficient. But we see it as a GOOD thing because we know that as long as we are trading liquid assets, the pricing is always very fair. In this video, we show you a demonstration of Market Efficiency, and we also explain what this means to our trading.

Experiment: Theoretical vs Actual Probabilities

These two probabilities are Probability ITM and Probability of Touch, and they are found in the ThinkOrSwim option chain. www.skyviewtrading.com
