1. FOMC Statement Tomorrow!

If the first day of November is an indication of what to come….then hang on as it may be a wild ride…..

FOMC tomorrow and before that more than a few economic numbers.

FOMC days have different characteristics than other trading days. If you have traded for a while, check your trading notes from past FOMC days that may help you prepare for tomorrow.

if you are a newcomer, take a more conservative approach and make sure you understand that the news can really move the market.

My observations suggest choppy, low volume up until announcement, followed by some some sharp volatile moves right during and after the announcement. However, with tomorrow early morning reports and recent volatility, we may see wild action through out.

HEADS UP – NORMALLY FOMC COMES OUT AT 2:15 EASTERN TIME. TOMORROW IT WILL BE OUT 12:30 EASTERN TIME

One advice everyone can benefit from is, reduce your trading size in proportion to the increase in volatility. This should help your comfort level while in the day-trade.
