Today (25th), the stock market was shaken by various bad news. The KOSPI once fell more than 3% and then pulled up to the 2,700 level, but individual investors' losses are getting bigger and bigger.
Reporter Kim Jung-woo pointed out where the end of the decline will be.
KOSPI at one point threatened even the 2,700 level during the day, but fell 2.56% to close at 2,720.39.
Of the top 100 companies by market cap on the KOSPI, 98 stocks fell except for just two.
The KOSDAQ also fell nearly 3%, breaking the 900 mark in ten months.
Most securities firms predicted the lowest point of the KOSPI in the first half of this year at 2,800, but it was wrong within a month.
In this situation, individual investors' losses are increasing.
When the US stock market, which had plunged overnight, closed with a slight recovery, individual investors bought nearly 600 billion won in stocks, but this was not enough to stop the amount sold by foreigners and institutions.
In fact, since the 14th, while foreign and institutional investors have been selling stocks, individual investors have bought about 3 trillion won in stocks.
Experts see a cold wind blowing in the market for the time being.
First of all, as the US central bank has foretold tightening the money line, foreign investors are recovering their investment.
In addition, there is a movement to organize stocks that were popular during the corona crisis and find the next investment stock.
