I don't trade the indexes often, however I'm trading the YM and the ES on occasion. Recently I've become increasingly concerned about where the general market is going and I have a question specifically directed to the folks participating here as I believe some have experience with past market crashes. The following is hypothetical of course: Assumption, today is the mother of all crashes, but it doesn't really start off like that, i.e. lulling you into a sense that it is going to be just a standard buy/sell S/R or pivots. The following is all intra-day for the crash day only. Let's say you were in an ES trade short during a significant down move portion of the day. Let's say you actually are able to exit the trade and be in 100% cash. Let's say you know both intuitively and visually from the screen and the news that something really significant and terrible is happening. 1) Where would you put your trading money that is sitting in 100% cash right at that moment? Remember, you've already banked multiples of your normal daily profit, several times. 2) What did gold, and the US dollar do at a time like the above? 3) If the market closes, and you are in 100% cash in your futures trading account, can you even get your money out of your broker? On to another scenario. Same as above, but let's say the following is happening: The stock market, the bond market, the US dollar, and gold are all crashing. Yeah, far fetched, but what would you do with your 100% USD cash sitting in your brokerage account? OK, call me paranoid, in my line of work we have what is called a business continuity plan (BCP). This is what comes into play when a 911 event happens. That is what I want to know in a nutshell. What is your BCP?
