Volatility Heading Our Way

Honestly, I have no idea how we made it through this summer largely unscathed (at least thus far), and -assuming you played along our setups – even managed to accumulate some more ill-gotten (and very politically incorrect) gains. A bit of luck didn’t hurt of course but for the record: we truly worked our butts off in order to squeeze whatever edge we could find out of an impossibly volatile and sometimes erratic market.

Getting Hammered

And not in a good way, I may add. I just checked the event log for the remainder of this week and it looks rather petrifying: Starting tomorrow one market moving event after the other, and given the current frailty in equities the potential for continued hilarity can not be ignored.
