How come the supposedly older and more senior traders here are having trouble trading this market? This market is like any other bull market with sharp thrusts and pullbacks. A volatile bull market like this one should not be that difficult to trade. When I look at the posts, I come to one conclusion. Most guys here are letting their emotions get the best of them. The truth is that this environment is one of the best ones to trade since the late 90s. In fact, in some ways, this is the late 90s. Today the Russell 2000 is up over 3% alone and thats just an index. Certain mining stocks like SWC up 16% in one session. I dont know what to tell you if you can't make money in an environment like this one.
