Analysts in investment banks and stockbroking companies have some of the toughest jobs. They have to say something about the stocks, market and economy almost on daily basis - even though there is nothing to say. When market is up, they need a reason to justify it and when market is down, they need to say why. The market consists of many buyers and sellers. It is perfectly normal for it to go up and down, without any particular reasons.
Analysts have perfected the art of talking nonsense or talking without really talking. Here are some examples:
Nonsense #1: Trading in a range
Meaning: The stock market has not moved at all and they need something that sounds interesting to say
Nonsense#2: The market is likely to go either way
Meaning: The analysts have absolutely no idea where is market is moving, so bet on both sides
Nonsense#3: The market is in the process of bottoming out
Meaning: The market is going down but the analysts have no idea how low is low or how long it takes
Nonsense#4: We are cautiously optimistic
Meaning: Again, the analysts is betting on both sides - cautious and optimistic. Either way, they are right
Nonsense#5: Macro volatility
Meaning: The market is uncertain but this phrase sounds smarter
