I wonder how much of the volatility we've seen of late is related to the death of the old short rule. Nobody benefits from that more than a quant machine.

I kept thinking there was a group of freaking retards who kept buying like, well, retards on acid every time the market move sharply downward. Then it dawned on this tard that it isn't people....it's emotionless machines.

DJ Transports indicate the bull may be tired. Banks don't even trust each other overnight. Where's the catalyst?

>>he gov. is devaluating those dollars to the point that they don't want them any more?

=======================

I'm thinking they aren't just changing the rules of the game - they're changing the game.

I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see chaos in the EU and Asia within 24 months and a true "Black Swan" event that creates a need for a revamping of the monetary system - with a global one of course.

Much like the Soviets walked away from their socialist commitments in the 90's, we may see something with our Social(ist) Security and pensions as well.

General Discussion · QUESTION: Is Now The Time To Sit Out Of The Market For Awhile?

The volatility lately is good for trading, treacherous for long entries. Better to trade now or stay in cash and wait for greener days. Nobody can blame anyone for sitting these last few days out.

There's lots of chatter about banks and the actual stability of the whole system so maybe it will be a long, cold winter. Or maybe it's just more bear BS. Who knows? Roll with the punches.

General Discussion · What is your min amount of volume before entering a trade?

I don't like to listen to crickets when I hit the sell button. Usually 1 mil is the minimum and that's still thin sometimes.

Pretty much if the trend is up and the volatility is high then volume will be too. You have to watch the float turnover though. If a stock is turning the float 1 or more times a day be ready to bail quick.

This is true. "Trading in the Zone" is a good book to read.

This is a great thread...sure beats listening to the crickets chirp in here. I canceled all my pay sites except this one so I don't get to interact with other traders much outside of here.
