Traders tend to love volatile markets - the up and down movements create opportunities. But such was not the case for the Performance Coaches today, who lost just under $100 total after three trades.
The Performance Coaches jumped into a long S&P 500 early in the morning, looking for support ahead of the Weekly Kickoff low at 2575. But, they jumped in a little too early and put their stop a little too close - causing them to get stopped out of a long they initiated at 2579.25 for a 4.5 point loss. As prices stabilized, they reinitiated that trade, buying back at 2575.75 - riding that to 2580.75 for $250 in gains. That gave the Coaches roughly $20 in profits on the day.
