Thursday Update

New Trading System: Whenever Allan goes on the road for a few days, GO LONG  VOLATILITY.

China trade talks continue to dominate the market, only now to the downside. Equites are one headline or tweet away from a 1-2% move in either direction. sometimes both directions in the same session. That's no way to trade options, or anything for that matter.

By this time next week, probably sooner, the news will be less of a factor and opportunities will arise without the risk associated with news-driven mini-panics, up or down. In any case, no new system trades have been triggered.
