It is not for the rookie. It is not for those looking for a quick buck. It is for professional traders, who make confident decisions. For those who are fast on the keys and place trades with conviction.
Can you learn on a day like today? Yes absolutely. Will there be opportunity today? Yes.
Should you day trade today?
Only you can answer that. I can’t put a blanket statement on everyone, but if you are a casual self-directed trader, I would pick a fight tomorrow. Over the last 16 years I have witnessed rookie traders who blew up their account in a month taking on too much too soon. Be smart. admit where your skills are today, at this moment.
If you are a pro, go get em… You can make your month today.

After a dramatic and tense night and morning, it gradually became clear Britain has decided to exit the bloc it’s been a member of since 1973. Early results, coupled with late opinion polls, had indicated a win for the “remain” side, but as more results trickled in through the morning, the momentum swung to the Brexit side.
Shortly before 7:30 a.m. London time, or 2:30 a.m. Eastern Time, Jenny Watson, chairwoman of the United Kingdom Electoral Commission, made the official declaration that the U.K. has voted to leave the union, with 51.9% backing an exit vote.
The results sent shockwaves through financial markets and trading floors. The pound GBPUSD, -7.9199% has tanked 10% to trade at a 31-year low, while U.K. and U.S. stock futures pointed to sharp losses at the open.

Central banks have sounded the alarm over a potential Brexit, with chiefs of the Fed, Bank of Japan and Bank of Canada all citing the vote as a potential disruption to the global economy. Yellen said yesterday the decision could have consequences for financial markets, and “in turn for the U.S. economic outlook.” The International Monetary Fund had warned that a so-called Brexit risked damage to the U.K. economy.

Apple, Inc. May be Planning a Huge Redesign to 10-Year Anniversary iPhone
Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) investors shouldn’t get too excited about the upcoming iPhone 7 if a new report from The Wall Street Journal is true. The tech giant may depart from its typical two-year cycle for major redesigns as it focuses on a massive overhaul to its 2017 iPhone, which happens to land on the iPhone’s 10-year anniversary.

$AAPL comfortably bearish for two months. Will open below the $93.51 support, look for that level to hold as resistance. A new short sale has a target of $90.
