Guys - just FYI - if you are just starting to look at the tape in the last few days - do not be put off.

What we are seeing now is not normal!

Is anyone else having problem with tape reading Yesterday and Today? Whats wrong? I noticed that on the DOM the levels are smaller than normal. Is it the problem. When the market is thin its volatile. I hope something is wrong with the market and not me and that it gets back to normal soon.

I hope you right about tomorrow. I think I will take my first trade tomorrow in my head and see if market is normal. If it is then I will trade. How many times a year does market behave like this?

For sure - you certainly want to reconsider that tight stop in this market...


It's like watching Ninja Replay on 500x....
