lessons learned: in nowadays huuuuge-volatility markets i have to place much, much, much tighter trailing stops on winning positions (sugar, coffee, natural gas) as otherwise are the significant parts of theoretical profits wiped out again :o((
the commodity markets are not 'ready' for up-trends yet! even coffee and natural gas, which usually have strong seasonal up-trends in the winter months, ran just 2-3 days significantly up, today were all gains wiped out again :o(( ...
some more words about today = the next panic day:
DJIA -4.85% (all 30 stocks negative! best = coca-cola -0.54%, ... ,
general motors -13.67% = worst)
deutsche bank -12.82%
crude oil brent -9.48%
