sensitive market

Definition

A market position that can easily be changed from one direction to another direction based on news. News that was reported during the previous session may influence the next session and cause stocks to advance or decline. During volatile sessions in a sensitive market, stocks are typically impacted by every piece of news whether good or bad. For example, if company A reports lower-than-expected earnings, the news may send stocks spiraling downwards.
