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?
