On the original question: Yes, large players are absent near the end of december but there are still opportunities. I have done very well in dec the past 2 years (and hope to keep it going this year!). And if I was to have a down month, I wouldn't blame it on the holidays. Breakouts and breakdowns are usually less likely during this period, but if you're aware of it, that may be an opportunity.

I still trade, but I cut my contract size down and I cut my profit targets in half. I also use a smaller time frame chart to trade to compensate for the lower volume. Definitely not as many opportunities, but they are still there if you want to trade.
