It’s safe to say that 2020 has been a peculiar year for the stock market: There’s a global pandemic, half the economy is still closed and the “Nasdaq Whale” is on the loose.
There are whispers that this whale could be one of the reasons for this summer’s unpredictable tech rally — and its decline.
A “whale trader” is a term that refers to investors or companies that have a massive amount of capital to trade with.. We’re talking about people who are making trades so big their movements can cause ripple effects in the stock market and disturb the smaller fish trying to trade there.
Depending on how things shake out, these whales can be bullish or bearish for stocks, sectors and even entire indexes.
This explains how the Nasdaq Whale could have caused a bullish feedback loop that added to the index’s August when they poured tens of millions of dollars into tech options trades..
The Financial Times also said that the Nasdaq Whale’s options buying had “stoked the fevered rally in big tech stocks before a sharp pullback” in September.
With so many things still going on in Wall Street, analysts are beginning to wonder if the Nasdaq Whale will make even more waves in the market this October — whether for better or worse.
Market whales have been known to become problematic: Whether they decide to move their sizable amounts of capital or leave it sitting on the sidelines, their choices are going to affect volatility.
And it looks like we have a new big-time player on the scene… an options trader that Wall Street has dubbed the “Nasdaq Whale.” This investor already made huge waves in the stock market these past couple of months — tossing down billions to buy contracts on big-name tech stocks like Amazon, Alphabet, Microsoft and Tesla.
This whale also might have been responsible for pushing the Nasdaq up by 60% from April through September…
The New Money Crew’s Joshua Bellanger heard that the investor behind it all has made $4 billion off those trades, and now they look to be positioning themselves for more upside…
