Large Daily Swings - The New Norm?

Markets have been very volatile this year. With the large run up in the markets from November 2016 to December 2017 the new and frequent daily swings we are seeing may in fact be the new normal and represent a new opportunity.

The markets appear to be digesting the data on producer and consumer prices to indicate low inflation risks and therefor a Fed that is unlikely to accelerate any interest-rate increases. The U.S. stock market seems to have turned the corner, overcoming concerns about inflation, rising rates, trade wars and other geopolitical issues, as witnessed by steady gains over the past six weeks.

May is here and Markets Remain Very Volatile

Yesterday we witnessed continued market volatility with the Dow moving over 400 points first down over 330 points then back up into positive territory. We continue to see these wild swings be we have to remember that we are at historic highs and maybe this is the new normal. If so it may provide great opportunities for daily swing trades.
