Just a little background. I've been trading for almost 6 years and trade mostly momentum and have always been profitable. Anyways, my problem is mornings like today: The S&P has pretty much become a derivative of the dow minis, which trade no volume and the index is pretty much meaningless. THe volatility in the S&P is huge as compared to the dow and I just can't for the life of me understand why and think it's total bullshit but it is what it is. Charts turn negative so i get short, instead of trading down the S&P just sits because the dow just stops trading. I"ll do this over and over and it's killing me. to me a futures contract of 30 stocks that trades 2500 contracts in 10 hours should be closed and obliterated but it's more important than anything else. Anyone have any good advice? I just need to hear how stupid I am from somebody else.
