Having had to work a weekend for the first time in a while, the true nature of the volatile markets we have had has hit home. Prices of UK shares are rising and falling very quickly right now and day to day. If you can't follow the markets closely then your positions become very exposed.
This is normally a bad sign, similar to a spinning top running out of energy, as the wobble grows the crash comes nearer. QE has prevented a crash so far and yet the top of the market seems close now. My hunch is that we will see 2009 out and then in 2010 there will be another roller coaster with big drops in prices of oil, commodities and share prices in the first few months of the year.
Interesting times for trading, if only I can find the time to keep up!
