We had very big drop in SPX yesterday. I hope everybody is fine. Trades we mostly do here shouldn't be affected tremendously. Most vulnerable, I guess, would be M3 but with very developed methodology it should be fine unless psychology: 'I should do this but I thing market will to that so I do nothing', get in the way. If I was still in my old way, trading weeklys with full time job, I'd be probably destroyed. Again I appreciated mental comfort that comes with longer term, OTM structures. It let me observe whole event with calm and curiosity and even try to grab some profits with daytrading (with mediocre results). During Friday session I noticed something interesting and want to ask more experienced traders for their opinion. In spite of 60 point drop there was no panic on the markets. Descending was performed in very controlled manner, we did not have huge intra-day candles. Down move accelerated toward end of the day but, still, no signs of panic. I'd expected, as others did, that influence of algos would be such that one algo try to beat another which result in madness of selling. It didn't happen. Same with human traders, it did not feel like everybody was looking for exit. Whole thing reminded rather controlled demolition. It almost look like – my imagination here – there was some force that new how traders/algos are about to go in panic mode and controlled market moves to prevent this to happen. Putting imagination aside, we do not know what will happen next week but looking few days back do you also perceive market behavior to be little unexpected or is it just me?
