Stock Market Monthly Bifurcation…Volatility Explodes…..Neither Side Yet In Control

If you’re trading this market it’s quite likely you’re struggling mightily. The degree of volatility is off the charts about as much as I’ve ever witnessed. The moves from day to day are intense, but even more so are the moves hour to hour, and sometimes less than that. In a twenty minutes span you can see the S&P 500 swing twenty or more points. This process gets repeated many times over the course of a single trading day. No one does well in this environment unless you’re taking the highly risky chance of holding stocks in to their earnings report. I personally would never recommend that.
