Is volatility going to dry up like 2005?

  1. After 9/11, 2002 was very volatile.

    After the low in March 2003, start of the second iraq war, we still had good trading markets until early 2005.

    Then the VIX went to 10 and until mid 2007 things were pretty dead.
    Still some profits were to be had but the S&P would move like max 6 pts (ATR) on most day.

    Im thinking after the volatility of 2008, and the low in March 2009 (like the march 2003 low) we are now going to dry up just like we did in 2005?

    Yeah it will, I just go back from 2015 and not much happened from now till then.

    Point is this, other global events could happen any-time and give the markets a shot of adrenaline.

    If you trade a wide variety of uncorrelated instruments some are bound to be moving a lot of the time.

    Lots of instruments to trade. Ya Es ranges are pretty weak as of lately, but still lots of movement with other markets like CL, ZS etc.
