Enter The Doldrums

Enter The Doldrums

by The MoleJuly 6, 2020

Independence Day marks the onset of the summer vacation season, although to a much lesser extent in 2020 due to global travel restrictions. While I’m stuck in the sweltering heat of Spain Tony managed to plot his escape from Chicago to some camping ground near Kern River, CA. I have very nice memories visiting there and one of the main advantages is that Sequoia National Park with its higher elevations and cooler temperatures is only three hours away.

If there is one thing I really miss about living in California then it is the amazing national parks. Don’t get me wrong, as the 2nd most visited country on earth Spain offers some gorgeous scenery. But IMO nothing compares with the natural splendor of California and once things settle down politically I’ll be sure to plan our next trip there.

Now from a trading perspective we are heading straight into the annual summer doldrums. Although June offers a slight bullish bias it’s obviously one of the least rewarding seasons of the year. Unless of course you are trading volatility and time decay, which is exactly what’s on the menu for the foreseeable future.

Week #28 has decent weekly positive stats at 58%, just don’t expect any large outlier moves.
