Soybean Futures Offer Volatility During Quiet Emini Session
After a concerted effort by the ECB and the Fed to "print as much money as it takes" to rescue the global economy, many traders, economists and pundits appeared surprised by today's muted action. We did have a decent spike on Thursday's announcement and a slight follow through on Friday but by the close of the week we had given back all of Friday's gains and a good share of Thursday's as well.
It is not unusual to have a day of consolidation after a big move, but we are now entering our third session in a market that seems to have run out of steam. Many are beginning to question if liquidity was truly the heart of the problem. It is our belief that until banks are forced to actually put money into the hands or responsible credit worthy entrepreneurs and would be home buyers, any chance of a real recovery is but a distant dream of somebody's father.
We did offer a Soybean Trade during the Globex Session Sunday night and aside from one small scalp in the S&P that was it for today. David has shared with us over the years that Soybeans are a good secondary market to fall back on when volatility is lacking in other markets.
Here's the Tweet and the Trade -

S&P 500 Emini Futures
Our one trade in the S&P was to short 1457.25. It began as a scalp and turned into an investment. That's how quiet the market was.
