Holiday Week

How do you guys plan on handling trading this week? Will you trade every second the market
is open or take some time off because of lower volume?

Hi @tderrick

There are 2 types of US holiday weeks:

1) the one like this one - holiday Thursday - Friday normal
2) the holiday on Friday or Monday to prolong the weekend

My experience: On weeks with 1) there is a lot of volume - trading on every day (except holiday) brings $$$
on weeks with 2) the volume is going back - so NO trade BEFORE the holiday

Only my 2 cents

..just to deepen the theme: I am using that rule for the german DAX future
as I know that in abscence of US trading - the same applies for the Dax.
This helped me a LOT to not jump into shallow water.
Plus it was great to get some free days more within a generally heavy
trading year.

Good trades

I definitely agree with GFIs1
On top of that, I have also found that during these periods, support and resistance levels; moving averages, etc... work very accurately, and we rarely overshoot them.
Moreover, the general bias should be towards going long rather than shorting if you are to attempt intra-day plays nonetheless: As they say, it is difficult to short a dull market!

I usually open a very small position to the long side off good support, and let it run for several days throughout the holiday duration and hangover (pre/post...).

Successful people will do what unsuccessful people won't or can't do!
