nasdaq futures; After months of NO volatility in stock index futures, markets went into extreme volatility the past 6 weeks or so with the infamous days at the beginning of February. On February 5th the Dow suffered it's single largest losing day, on a per point basis ,in history.
Since then we have witnessed some large swings, intraday and overnight. Many caused by geopolitcal events. It is my opinion that volatility is here to stay for a while. Many things are taking place on the geo political front that can cause the markets to continue swinging both ways but in between, as I am writing this newsletter ,on the heels of the latest unemployment report NASDAQ is back and testing all time highs....
Our brokers here at Cannon will be happy to chat about different markets, swing trading as well as day-trading and much more! Feel free to contact us at any time.
