What the F*** Did Powell Say?

Happy Thursday ,

Wow, another insane session.

Look at this…

At 2 pm EST, interest rate data came out and the market pumped,

extending us three times the initial balance…

(IB is the first hour’s range of movement.)

The amount we extend during the rest of the session

is a good measure of the day’s volatility.


Extending the IB three times one way is unusual.

Three times the initial balance is the maximum I have marked.

But when Big Daddy Powell came to talk at 2:30 PM?

All hell let loose.

The market mega-dumped in an insane selloff cascade that left me bewildered…

And the price decreased to over four times the IB

In the opposite direction!

From the peak to the time you get this email…

ES dumped from 3907 to a low of 3735.

172 points from one news event.

Or a move of $8600 per single ES mini contract.

This is why I advise newbie traders to stay away from news days.

And if you were trading…

I hope you set your stops like I told you to yesterday 😉


P.S: If you’re wondering about my profit, your boy Korbs

didn’t get caught out in this maelstrom.

I profited a healthy $322.

P.P.S: If you wanna avoid getting wrecked on days like this…
