We are now at the price range of the biggest relative difference between SPY and SPX. Maybe the 4th possible explanation for this is that this is a long-term topping signal? ~33% more volume in SPX at this range than SPY.
I'm 26 years old and have been trading for over 2 years now.
I have no formal education about trading. I just read many good blogs like Market Rewind and Brett Steenbarger's Traderfeed for ideas.
The more experience I get the more clear the market looks like and the easier it is to control my fear, greed and hope when trading.
I'm a technical trader.
I used to swing trade stocks a lot more often when there were plenty of technically appealing mean reversion set ups. The melt up of '09 has shut me out of stocks and made me adapt to other markets. Now I mostly scalp currency futures and sometimes even swing trading in very carefully selected situations.
