And the volatility continues…..between FOMC, craziness in crude many of the commodity markets experienced some extreme volatility these past few weeks….
Be careful. These are different market conditions and high volatility may require you to adjust your stops based on volatility, may require you to adjust your entry techniques and in general will require you to do some home work, look at previous periods of similar volatility and adjust your trading accordingly.
This may be a “stupid example” but will serve the purpose:
If 2 months ago you were trading the mini SP and 3 point stop was sufficient for your method and entries, I can almost say with 99% confidence that it will not work during this period of volatility as the market can move 3 points in 15 seconds and take you out very quickly just to go back to where you thought it would.
Do your homework. Trading is NOT easy to say the least and markets evolve and change all the time. Markets also go from periods of lower volatility to higher volatility etc.
If I can be of help – let me know and best of trading to everyone.
Trading Futures, Options on Futures, and retail off-exchange foreign currency transactions involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors. You should carefully consider whether trading is suitable for you in light of your circumstances, knowledge, and financial resources. You may lose all or more of your initial investment. Opinions, market data, and recommendations are subject to change at any time.
