For 2015 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!
Swiss franc made a huge move today as Swiss officials decided to detach the Swiss rate from the Euro currency….This was probably the biggest one day move I have witnessed in any commodity/futures market percent wise in my 17 years as a broker ( at the high today it was up approx. 25%, closed up 17%!!!)…..
Monthly chart below for general knowledge below…
And repeating yesterday’s words below as today was even a crazier day than any so far…..
VOLATILITY is the keyword today and the last few weeks.
Personally I think this market has been harder to trade.
Do your homework. Review the charts over different time frames.
Do you need to adjust entry techniques? Do you need to use LESS leverage? Perhaps your stops needs to be adjusted based on volatility?
i am just throwing some ideas out there to help you think, research and hopefully implement and adapt to what I consider a different market for day trading than we have seen for most of 2014.
