The Return of Two-Way Trading
- Posted by DynamicHedge
- on February 16th, 2012
There are times when the market only moves in one direction and you’ve got to do your best to not get run over. Then there are times when the market is in flux and there are opportunities at every turn. I think we are finally in a situation where we will start to see some volatility and opportunity and two-way trade is once again possible.
Unless something changes dramatically in the near term we’re likely to see highs in the months ahead. I still think we’re in a bull trend and pullbacks are to be bought. Trust me, I’m no bear.
The market knows exactly when to screw the most longs and when to pound the most shorts. I do not questions the motives and mysteries. Interpret, act, and adjust. Check out the $TRAN index breaking the late January pullback lows.
