The agony continues. I hold posiitons all day hoping that they will move out of their 25 cent range (and these are $50-$75 NYSE stocks) and they don't. I short stocks that are clearly weak, but they just don't move down much, or up for that matter. All i can say is that it will continue to be like this until it isn't. Action or lack of action is contagioius. No one going to trade when they are trading with themselves. So we are stuck in this rutt until we get out of it. I'm confident it will get better. Just don't know when. We don't need an up market to make money, but we do need trading activity!! Last year was a good year for trading in my opinion, most months at least. I think that trading is probably better in bear markets than in bulls. There should be iraq resolution in 2-3 weeks. War no later than beginning of April. Hopefully thats as long as we have to wait. My screen is amazing during the middle of the day now. Everyday is like a preholday trading session.
