Wedged In

Equities have managed to run circles around even the most sagacious traders over the past few months. We’ve been able to grab a few favorable entries, but constant whipsaw fueled by contradictory musings from central banks on both sides of the Atlantic has effectively turned directional trading on its head whilst offering ever more fertile conditions for swing traders and nimble scalping aficionados.
