How is everyone making out with all this volatility?

Pay attention, times like this provide some of the best trading conditions. Size down if the volatility is too much for you, but keep on trading.

Any success stories? Any failures?

How's the market treating you?

I bounced back from -1.5% to a positive 1%. That's what I'll end the week with if I don't trade today. Would have been more if not for my phone, The lesson of the day "Do not use the phone while your on the clock"

I've never liked the idea of trading through a phone.. position checking or an backup way to get flat should your home internet go down?.. Sure, but otherwise trying to actually trade through your phone is limiting.

I also like to have an 'off' switch for trading. I have a time and place I conduct business, and when I'm out of the office or home then I focus on other parts of life. It's good to have a balance.
