The difficulty of trading a highly volatile and low volume move is demonstrated by last two days action. Market is swinging from one extreme to another extreme. 2% days or days with 300 plus 4% bullish or bearish breakouts are now a days a weekly phenomenon.
After day before yesterdays weakness a retest of high was what I was expecting , but not so fast. The market opened in green and stayed that way and accelerated post 2 p.m. on news of Fed Chairman's letter. Technology was leading the way. INTC the tech bellwether had 4% plus breakout yesterday. Expecting this strength to not carry through much and we are likely to have a pullback from this level.
Market is in confirmed correction phase as per Market Monitor. The entire idea behind Market Monitor is to avoid risky , volatile period and trade during safe, less volatile periods. All such periods are ultimately followed by less volatile more predictable periods. More than that the profit one can make during the safe period can compensate for staying out during such period.
