I'm doing better in the spoos, but have had to stop trading oil. It is a trade-off. I'm okay with this.

Been very slow for me the past month. Only made 2 trades (oil and S&P). Good ones though!

Loving the huge down moves over the last two days! Guess this poll is a little old, but I just saw it today.

I'm surprised recent market behavior has had no impact on most people. It's starting to feel like a different market, bigger intra day ranges and more two sided action. In saying that I primarily trade stocks, and it's been earnings season- so my opinion could be skewed relative to someone who trades only futures.

I think people learn to roll with the punch. With so much info available you also have a long list of experience people to lean on.

I wasn't getting much with my usual edge so I started looking for another one and seemed to have found something that's worth checking out. I'm not sure of its longevity but with the current sample size, it's done well.

I think you have to learn to roll with it. The market flying 5 points in one five minute bar and back where it was or past it in the next, it's hard to trade longer time frames in new all time high situations where we aren't in a runaway bull market. I will like it when we start to get nice 30-120 minute trends again.

What is not to like about the recent volitility, where I had been chipping away I am now killing the pig and feasting, I just hope that it continues for a decent period.
Cheers John
