For 2013 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!
September is front month now for most futures contracts.
Stock index futures are more volatile the last 2 weeks than we seen in a while. Many times, this can be a signal of a longer term trend change but the main thing for most of you who are daytraders, is to simply understand and expect higher intraday volatility. Higher intraday volatility for me = trading smaller size, being more picky in my entry levels and allowing more room than normal for my trades and NOT using very tight stops. Of course, this is my opinion and every trader is different but in general this is what I do when the volatility increases.
