View From The Hill: April-21-2015

Commentary & Performance Summary

So you mean to tell me just one guy trading from his home in London flash-crashed the markets? If so, then we are all truly (insert your favorite expletive here) and so is the structural integrity of the financial capital markets.

Oh well, it was another listless day of trading in equities with significantly lower than average volume. By the way, sometimes May comes in April in case you’re looking to get away. (Speaking of which, I’m so looking forward to this weekend’s upcoming New Orleans Jazz Festival.)

The only thing that really captured my attention was the short-term correction in Crude Oil, but, then again, as my livelihood is derived from trading oil futures, I will rarely find this particular commodity market to be dull.

I wish I had more to say, but I honestly don’t so I’ll just stop here and post the data and let you connect the dots for yourselves.
