    This being my first Christmas trading, I was wondering from some expereinced traders what the action is like during the holiday season.

    I was wondering about day's like Dec 24,26,31, Jan 2?

    Cany anyone provide some insight as to what to expect on these days....Is anyone playing?

  2. the volume is usually lighter
  3. juve


    so even on days like Dec29th and Dec30?
  4. I used to work in a foreign exchange hedge fund couple of years ago and I saw that the volume was light towards end of the year but the price action was very good. I suppose it would be the same for equities, few people who dident go on vacation take over the market and drive prices.
