last weeks held great opportunities for a trader. nice. but I'm getting absolutely depressed when I look forward. once the dust settles and volatility returns to normal, things will be horrible. investment banks and other major players are broken, hedge funds destroyed, 1000s of traders were / are being laid off, large prop desks are being closed like small grocery stores. those who remember 2003/2004 know the ES 5 handle ranges. this time it will be much worse. CME stock price says it all.
