There is another way to play: the idea being that most look for bigger moves/swings, yes intraday there are many scalping opportunities and they are good too. But many try for the +100 moves, so what we are saying is that we want movement of some kind, so we focus on dow (for example), but the direction is not always sustainable on either side because intraday range of movement is increasing. Big players are not holding major longs anymore, this is shown by the gaps overnight. ie more movement, when is the last 6 months we would be waking up near flat to up nearly every day They dont need to protect anymore, so its a (slightly) more level playing field for retail.

But direction will be harder to call if taking this upcoming movement into account (yes you can buy and hold, or buy a major dip longer term), but anything below this could be dangerous as this baby wants to buckaroo.

So if you strat suggests something may happen, but one keeps getting killed on direction, take a look at trading volatility instead

Always pays to have multiple forms of adaptability. No one has to put their eggs in one basket. No one has to be defined by one style.
