stock trading: summer time volume

We covered patience as a stock trader in a previous post, now we have the summer time volume kicking in for most of the day. Traders have been fortunate for most of the summer that there was amazing volatility and volume. I hope you were able to capitalize on it. Currently we are being very picky about when to be aggressive. It may be this way until September gets here.

Always remember you are in business for yourself. Its not always busy. You are here to make money for the month and for the year. Don’t worry if you have to pull it back for a week or two. Net profitability is your goal, do a little tape reading and pay good attention to the size of the prints. If they are sporadic and small, nothing is going on. Keep your hands off the enter button!
