It's been drilled into my head to always have a trade plan for all contingencies. I happen to use mental stops and I also have a plan and targets for positive daytrades and longer holds. Most of us have dealt with sudden bad news, trading halts, power outages, computer seizures, etc. - but what about something broadbased and horrible such as the attack on our country that places our markets and our accounts in terrible peril? What are traders thoughts on this? Would you attempt to "trade" your way out of it to minimize the damage if possible say when the markets or your position(s) reopened for trading or just what would you do? Thank you. Geo.
