  1. I can't trade index futures right now.

    I've been getting hammered!!!

    Are there any stocks or sectors that trade "normal" ie natural buying and selling not pure panic mania and pandemonium every second of every day?

    Should I just take a break until things cool down? ie dow 4500?
  2. Your username suggests that you can't stick to a strategy. Thats probably why you suck at trading.
  3. The Dow Jones trades like a some penny stock on the pink sheets.

    I make all my money in the quite moves. I really miss the normal days.
  4. Are you on margin?
  5. How can you not love volatility???! :eek: :eek: :confused: :confused:

    I trade crude oil and its a nifhtmare to trade hhenn theres not loads n loads of volatility, like for te last 4hours when its been so quiet! :(
  6. It's great for gambling but the moves seem to be more erratic and extreme.
  7. I loved volatility before this craziness. vix around 30 is great for me.....but not 70
  8. Volatility, I like. Whipsaw can kiss my ass in the crack! The current volatility has doubled my profit targets, so what is not to like about that?
  9. Whipsaw is for damn sure.

    Market could end up down 300 points today.

    It usually sells off at least 400 points in the last 30 minutes.
  10. "Anybody hate Volatility?"

    Nope....Vol is a great thing.
