English term or phrase: squeezy market
We started the year with a very squeezy market in January followed then by a big bout of volatility in February and March.

I am not sure what a "squeezy market" is :-(
Any ideas?

Thank you!!

The term makes me think of sponges. They keep their shape when full of water or air but when you squeeze them, they become a lot smaller.

What is 'Squeeze'
Squeeze is used to describe many financial and business situations. In business, it is a period when borrowing is difficult or a time when profits decline due to increasing costs or decreasing revenues. In the financial world, it is used to describe situations where short sellers purchase stock to cover losses or when investors sell long positions to take capital gains off the table.

BREAKING DOWN 'Squeeze'
A squeeze is used liberally in finance and business and describes any situation where people are realizing losses, taking gains or finding credit financing difficult. The four types of squeezes are explained below.

Reference: A definition of squeezy market

Reference information:
Squeezy market is a market where people get washed out both directions pretty much. Especially happens when there is a big consensus on the market and participants are positioned in the same direction. It's usually the moment when a lot of information is already priced in and expectations are overstretched. When you get a market event or eco release (or series of such events) which is against this consensus, you get an avalanche of position unwinds and price moves against the consensus position in search for "pain" triggering a lot of stops on the way. Many times after this happens you get a resumption of the original move as some people use the dip / stops triggered spike to get into the consensus trade (the ones who didn't participate in the previous move). Some people might do it a bit late though (i.e. not catching the spike, but only after the trend resumes) and therefore get bad entry levels, and many times it happens in a very event driven fashion (e.g. series of events/eco releases against the consensus triggering stops, followed by an event/eco release in next few days confirming the previous consensus trend) and it is driven by emotions where market participants chase the market...
