Fear of Missing Out: Buying when prices rise

The "Fear of Missing Out" – FOMO for short – leads traders to buy stocks whose price has already risen significantly. This trading motive could be observed last week with the German copper producer Aurubis. Last week's run on the stock, which has been performing strongly since October, was triggered by the commodities company's latest figures. Aurubis significantly increased its sales and operating result in the last financial year. The company also pleased investors with an EBIT forecast increase for FY 2021/22.

Buying the Dip: Buys when prices fall

# Name Performance 7 days bought in this wikifolio, among others
1 Moderna -17,8% Green Energy Megatrend
2 Compleo Charging Solutions -10,7% Tech & GreenTech Aktienwerte
3 Upstart -19,5% Wachstumsstarke Disruptoren
4 About You -7,3% Refresh
5 Endeavour Silver -12,8% High Speed Hunter

The "buying the dip" trading motive is evident when traders buy falling stocks in the hope of a bottoming out – in other words, the imminent turnaround. This is what happened last week with the stock of vaccine producer Moderna. The security gave up a good part of its gains – due to the uncertainty surrounding the new Corona variant Omikron. The reason for this is likely to be statements by the company's CEO Stephane Bance. In an interview, he spoke of the presumed "considerable decline" in the effectiveness of existing vaccines due to Omikron and of months of vaccine adjustment processes, thus curbing investor fantasies.

Taking Profit: Selling when prices are rising

# Name Performance 7 days sold in this wikifolio, among others
1 Hypoport 0,5% Wachstumsstarke Disruptoren
2 K+S 4,3% Trendfolge Long/Short Smallcap
3 Total 2,2% Free Investment Trend
4 Royal Dutch Shell (A) 1,9% Opportunity Pick
5 Weichai Power 13,8% Peak Power

The motive "Taking Profit" – i.e. selling when prices are rising – could be observed last week with Hypoport. One of the traders who recently parted with Hypoport's stock is Thomas Hamann (Tom16). He justifies the sell as follows: "Hypoport certainly remains exciting in the long term; however, this platform for insurances is not taking off as well as hoped, so I don't expect much momentum here in the short term." The Hypoport trade was a complete success for Hamann. He sold the shares of the German parent company of several technology companies from his wikifolio TomsTrends‘nTrades for a profit of over 200 percent.

Jumping the Ship: Selling when prices are falling

# Name Performance 7 days sold in this wikifolio, among others
1 Plug Power -19,6% Trendfolge Long/Short Smallcap
2 Sea (ADR) -14,7% 2M - Market Momentum
3 Alibaba (ADR) -15,6% Goldesel Stockpicking USA
4 (ADR) -12,1% Top 100 Community Aktien M
5 Netflix -9,8% ANT1 FRAG - HPS worldwide

Selling when prices are falling – this is what characterizes the "Jumping the Ship" category. The same fate befell stock of the hydrogen company Plug Power last week. The weakness of the security is probably mainly due to the tense situation of the overall market. Other hydrogen stocks also lost significant ground in the last trading week.
