There seems to be no end to the posts about the market being manipulated. The market is not being manipulated, this is perfectly normal market movement for an economy that is heading into recession and/or a bear market. If you are getting whipped out of your trades it probably means you just don't know how to trade this environment, or you just don't know how to trade period. The current environment is spectacular for trading. The stuff is just MOVING. If you need to have a strong trend at your back to make money in the market then you don't know how to trade. Go back to the drawing board and realize you typically have to do the exact opposite in a volatile market, compared to a trending market. When we trend buy strength and sell weakness. When we chop buy weakness and sell strength. If you can't adapt to changing market conditions then either stand aside or change your method. Just stop blaming the "manipulators." That ain't happening. There is tons of money to be made out there; you just have to know how to get it. Take a different approach if what you're currently doing isn't work. Don't argue with the market, just trade what happens. Pay real close attention to candlesticks. In this market they are incredibly valuable.
