New year, new market?
Nah… looks to be more of the same. Grinding moves higher with rotation underneath the surface. Volatility, both realized and implied, staying low.
Until we see evidence to the contrary, we must structure risk with the assumption that the market will continue with its trend. Once volatility does pick up (and it will) then we can time entries a little wider.
