In developing countries such as Turkey, changes are observed in foreigners’ positions depending on the fluctuations in country credit ratings and credit risk premiums. Foreigners who reduce their current positions or put them on hold when the risk rises can be effective in the direction of the market depending on their transaction intensity.

When the pass-through between instruments in the stock, foreign exchange and interest equation is followed, it is observed that developing countries are trying to attract investors by incurring too much costs. The biggest reason for this is that developing countries give less confidence to investors in the international monetary cycle. Foreign funds are, after all, making profit-oriented transactions. As such, there are more short-term inflows to countries with low credit ratings and high risk premiums. Such transactions lead to increased fluctuations in the markets.

How to make big money in the stock market?

1 In the stock market, big money is earned by saving.

2 Instead of sudden big gains, it should move forward with firm steps.

3 Investments should be made with portfolios to be created from dividend and growth stocks, targeting a period of 5 or 10 years.

4 Purchases should be made gradually, not all at once. Some of the money should be reserved and cash should be kept in case of unexpected developments. 8, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 400 day averages can be followed for the stock purchased. If 400-day averages are reached, there are extraordinary developments. Cash set aside for pickups on dips can be used. 100, 200-day averages are long-term averages. These are the times when the shares are multiplied. Stocks continue their short-term trends as long as they are above the 8-day average.

5 Leading companies in the sector, whose sales and profits are growing and investing, earn their investors in the long run.
