Not at all feel like this quite a bit of the time! If you've had a really good week, you can't wait for the market to re-open. Having said that, 7 day trading would be brutal - I'm glad it's only 5 days when it really comes down to it! :cheesy:
It's true - Monday to Friday you can take your pick. It's the fact that you have an obligatory holiday on Saturday-Sunday whether you like it or not.
Actually, it's not the not being able to trade, its more not knowing whether the market will gap up or down on the next open. Trading FX is not so bad in this respect, as you can take a peek at XE.com for a look at the latest spot price if you're desperate. If you trade futures though, you just have to be patient!
There are too many unknowns at the moment, and a nice outbreak of porcine flu would send already jittery markets all over the shop. I see the airlines are already taking a battering off the back of it - down 10% today already.
I trade emerging market indices, and they don't trade even 24 hours during the week. There's great profit potential, but I've already decided to go flat for a day or two until the impact of the latest round of news has settled in. I know it's a slim possibility, but if we have a major pandemic which infects the UK, at the very least there will be rabid panic, nevermind actual casualties.
Totally agree, 9pm Friday night when trading closes, it's like "what do I do now?" You can start Australia (and therefore gold, indices etc.) on Sunday night. But weekends are cold turkey. But you can ...
1. Set up your cashflow and strategy for next week.
2. Read research on small cap long hold stocks.
3. Learn a bit of Forex theory (if you trade stocks/indices) or vice versa.
4. Try and make sense of all this exotic maths.
5. Play Triviador on Facebook.
7. Talk to your family.
You can trade the UAE Markets on sunday. I have never traded them as I concentrate on the U.S markets. There is a thread by Amerf1 on the UAE markets in the Asia-Pacific Stocks section or you could play poker.
The weekend trading it sounds cool. there will lot of brokers and the traders also there to push the demand and supply to earn their profit so i like the on line marketing. this is so helpful for the trading system. http://robotictradingsystems.com/cooltrade/videos
