this is not a forcast.. just stating what is... the geometry in my work is the same as it was that quiet tuesday morning in feb 07 before the dow tanked 500 pts.
I thought the exact same thing I lost 5 figures that day I was long 20 contracts, I switched from short to long the around 4:00 the day before....some news out of Asia send the market way down jumped right over my limit order over night. Thats the most I have ever lost on one trade. Although I got most back by 4:00 by trading 2-4 contracts only I would have made around 80k if I had held my short from the day before. Thats what hurt the most.
