I have been in the futures industry for 25 years. I currently work at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Many traders like to pick my brain and/or share their thoughts with me. A friend and colleague presented me with an interesting scenario today with regards to the strength on Wall Street. With an 8 pm Little League baseball game tonight, my son will come first. Keep your eyes open this weekend for my thread, ONE POSSIBLE REASON FOR THE STRENGTH ON WALL STREET. Remember, the last 3 hours of trade on Friday are the final 3 hours of trade for the week worldwide. 2/3 of the players are either sleeping or enjoying wine over dinner. Out of the remaining 1/3, half of them have started their weekend early. The last 3 hours are hardest trade of the week. Leave this time for the ADDICTS. Do not give them your hard earned money.
