look at my sig
Volatility => get whippedSurely they can't be "big" traders if they go away when the volatility is highest, traders thrive on that, more moves = more opportunity etc. It's quite odd, I have video of earlier this year and some more recent and its a huge difference.
Unfortunately, I don't have the leisure of sitting down watching screen all day long.Get whipped in vol = bad trader to me. Traders should thrive on vol, more opportunity, I'd much rather vol than trend, almost all traders I know would too, maybe its the longer term traders who are getting whipped.
Fair enough, whatever floats your boat If we were all the same style I wouldn't be asking this question, each to their own, I'd rather ride each yo instead of sitting through the swings all day hoping it lands where I thought it would when it opened. This is usually a highly traded instrument, from what I know a lot of prop traders trade this, which would mostly be intra-day I would say, so it seems weird that traders would suddenly stop trading it when volatility is on the rise.Unfortunately, I don't have the leisure of sitting down watching screen all day long.
Much prefer trending markets. Market makes a move on opening and closes higher or lower. Job done.
I have enough stress and excitement supporting traders without the accompanying stress of watching position yoyo all day...
Good or bad trader to me is in the P&L EOD reps.
