It's all pretty frenetic

I'm a tad surprised that the boards aren't full of chat about the frenetic activity on the markets at the moment.

I suppose everyone is too busy coining it or (like me ) trying to limit the damage.

there's not much to say really - as you say it's bloody hectic but what can one say? this definitely one of those situations you need to trade the market you see and not what it was 2 minutes ago

Most of us miss the frenetic activity because we're too busy reading stuff like this.

There is no way you can be trading today and miss the activity.

reminds me of the fun during the credit crunch... I think I'm going to add a bit more to ISA than I usually would... this seems a sensible time to be buying stocks

I was going to say that if you can see the waves coming you can make a lot, but that is in really poor taste

For a US stocks trader the first half hour has been brilliant even though it looks like a typical "gap and c r a p" day on the indices as our American friends say.

Another reason to day trade only - no overnight risk and you can get huge leverage on your capital by using it again and again on trade after trade; it's not tied up.
