How do you spell volatility? How about a 25 handle “downdraft” in futures in the last few minutes of the trading session on reports of ECB revoking waivers regarding the use of Greek government debt as collateral for loans…That’s not enough you say? OK…How about a 25 handle “updraft” in futures overnight with PBoC’s 50bps RRR cut for banks. Are you sick yet? Do you want to get off this “vomit comet” amusement ride? Maybe riding the Kiddie Tea Cups is more you speed. Welcome to the New World of Algorithmic Futures Trading.

I will identify my mistakes and learn from them. I am optimistic, realistic and honest. I will not make up stories about the good or bad things that occurred in the past or are happening now. I admit when something is not working. My optimism gives me faith and courage. I will not fall prey to blame and fear.
