Low Volatility, long hold time to get paid. It's tough but that's the way it has been. Traders waiting for Volatility to trade may find it difficult to adjust when volatility finally shows up.

Yesterday London, U.K was closed and

" Yesterday's Total US Equity Volume (including dark pools) was -35% vs the YTD avg"

Asia session: big yawn from Asian Equities post the newsy $SPX 2,000 bubble day. China led losers -1% overnight - Japan -0.6%, Indonesia -0.6%

Volume can be low can be high but internals remain +ve , so longs and longs.

Speed of the move and potential gains? I will take 5-7 points in today's enviornment- it's been like this for months with some exceptions in between.

@mfbreakout

On that top right market internal why are you subtracting nasdaq advancing issues from nasdaq declining volume? Is there a reason for that?

You have in there $ADVN/Q-$DVOL/Q

Don't you want instead $ADVN/Q-$DECN/Q

GSL8R,

Thanks very much. I did not realize that one day when i was playing around with charts- i messed up that input. I was getting the wrong readings on that panel and it was costing me some VERY NICE POTENTIAL GAINS for at least 3 weeks , that was last time i remeber playing around with some inputs.

Lukily for CL i do not have to look at market internals ( i will be screwed with wrong internals)

1) Long in the morning

2) and then short- Just had to sit through till enough longs were lured in to " PULL THE RUG".

It's easier to make a decision based on kind of pressure CL has been over last 3 weeks that new longs at 94.30 area does not make sense. Do not make it too HARD on yourself by insisting that if one is taking short in that area then the set up has to play out with some stop loss which is comfortable for you. CL could have plulled back from 94.10, 94.50 etc.
