Research Finds Confident Investors Taking Advantage of Market Conditions

Investors remain confident in their actions despite recent market conditions, according to research from Barclays Stockbrokers. Active traders and bullish investors are seizing the opportunity to benefit from falling share prices, with more than half, 52%, planning to buy in the current market conditions. In addition to this, a significant number of investors have long-term confidence in the market – almost four in ten (37%) have opted against selling their stocks and are preferring to hold on to them. A minority of investors, however, are more wary of the current volatile climate, with 11% deciding to sell their investments. Amy Nauiokas, MD and head of Barclays Stockbrokers, said: “It is an optimistic sign to see investors so confident in the present market climate and taking advantage of cheaper stocks. The findings of this survey reveal their assurance as self-directed investors, and exposes them as keen to exercise increasingly sophisticated techniques to maximise their returns – even in times of market jitters.”
