  1. The market is trending up again today but I don't dare to get into the market and LONG any positions.

    With the VIX in this low level, it is better sit tight and be ready to short the market when the time come to .. :D

    What you think ?
  2. if you're an ES trader, I think trading this week is stupid.

    Low volatility, low volume garbage. Wait til next year.
  3. Never Disagreed :D

    I think that if the price is going up, then buy the dips
  5. I don't think I want to LONG when the VIX is around 16.5. :D
  6. Btw, , you still can trade with those HFT robots as they don't take break :D

    Try trading the price instead of the VIX.
    If there are large Traders pushing price up, then up it goes.
  8. Did it ever occur to you that the recent big plunge in the VIX (which occurred late last week) was the result of the market place simply finally recognizing and adjusting to just now UN-VOLATILE the next two Holidays weeks will be???
  9. Large traders ? you mean the Fed ?:D

    Ah, I see that you are a thinking man.

    When the price goes up, it just goes up and you can figure out the "why" as you bank the profits.

    This game is only about profits ... try not to confuse it with other things
