Today was anything but easy trading the Futures markets. I knew to stay away from Equities because of the Yellen hangover. A bigger reason was that we had absolutely no confirmations on our charts.
These days can be so hard mentally, because after a big move in the markets we really want to be involved. I dipped my toes in the water ((@CL)crude oil) a small bit today and got bit. That told me all I need to know about this market. Stay away from it!
The days where everything you touch feels like you are holding on to kryptonite, you have to have the mental strength to walk away. Always easier said than done, but after years of getting my butt kicked on days like today, you eventually learn to take the early medicine and thank the trading gods that they didn’t take more.
