The worst scenario for traders is market apathy. We are pretty close to that right now.
We don’t make the stock market, we trade it. We hop on the back of order flow.
If we weren’t trading near all-time highs, the discussion would be about a 4 month trading range.
For some reason the historical level makes it less obvious. I am not an investor, I don’t care a bout setting new records each week in the indices.
I want price action I can sink my teeth into for more than one day. This tape is driving a lot of traders batty.
Stock Specific Market as indecision remains…
We are not in a tape that will correct sloppy trading. I actually feel bad for a new trader right now. There is opportunity but you really need to work for it.
A stock specific market means you should not be relying on market indices or internals, there isn’t much of a bias to give you conviction from the big picture. I am not saying the long-term trend is not obvious. It is. But we ar trading day-to-day and there simply isn’t follow-through.
Be picky and let everything else go.
Day Trading Game Plan: The SPY
SPY inside day close above resistance of $212. The close doesn’t mean much above the resistance as volume was putrid on an inside day. Break out mode.
