For 2013 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!
Extremely low volume on stock index futures. Some of this may have to do with the summer vacations, perhaps some has to do with the fact that we are trading at new highs? To be honest I am not sure and will do some research to find out what kind of volume the actual stocks/ NYSE are having.
Overall, market making new highs on low volume does not give me much confidence in the long side. In between the intra day ranges are tight and volatility is low. I know that many of you are mini SP 500 traders, ES. However, keep your mind open to other markets as well like mini Russell (usually has more volatility than the ES), crude oil and gold futures as well as currency futures and 30 year bonds.
Each market has different personality, different behavior along with different times of the day when it is most active. If you are finding that the ES is not giving you enough risk/opportunities then start monitoring a couple of other markets and perhaps explore them in demo / simulated mode.
I will be happy to share feedback and answer questions via email or phone.
