The open is the most important line in day trading.


How novel is that? bowrie.gif

Does anyone have any good ideas or Timing tools on when the next big VIX spike up occurs ?

Key dates are supposedly the WEEKS of September 11 and October 2

So maybe 15 trading days sideways to down on VIX into labor day??

I bought a bit of VXX this morning, up about .80 now.

Bought Thur AM, sold out Friday late AM.  I don't consider myself a day trader, but it seemed the market was reacting well to Bannon leaving the WH and Gary Cohn staying, so I bailed with a nice little profit.  If the market is up nicely this week, I will consider buying some VXX back later.
