I haven't had a trade in a week...how does my automated trading strategy seem to miss the juiciest moves? I know the answer to this question...and I'm not complaining since it's been profitable for years now...but I'd love to catch just one of these moves the last few trading days...

The answer is...for the curious...opening gaps tend to negate any chance of a trade for me, for the most part...that's why...and strong down-trending markets tend to have opening gaps...

Brutal, unrelenting drop these past few days...who saw this coming?

Even I'm starting to believe a little while watching today's action...

Too bad I've been sitting on my hands in cash since last Monday....

Should be a pretty big volume day today, judging by the futures action....

Down 600+ points on the DOW again...been trading for almost 20 years now, and seems so long since we've seen days like these...

Pure speculation, but I believe there was a large incorrect trade placed on the TLT around the time of your comment here -- it freaked people out. Please see one-minute chart of TLT.

VIX at 30+ right now....WOW

Haven't seen a VIX this high since I don't know when...wasn't even this high when the market had that mini-attack back in August '15

Closed near the low...and futures went down another 20 points (or close to 200 DOW points) after the close...tomorrow should be pretty interesting as well...

Still 8 minutes of after-the-bell trading to go on the futures before they close for a break
