Is Retail Trading Still A Thing?

Sharing is caring:

The question is not meant to be answered, it was more philosophical in nature. To be more specific, can a retail trader compete in the hyper-volatile market? That's another question I'm not looking for an answer for... maybe I don't want to hear an answer that doesn't fit my personal narrative?
Good old fashion technical analysis is higher highs and lower lows, support and resistance use to matter. Decisions to buy or sell are made within the "agreed" upon market dynamics. This has been the  rule of thumb for any retail trader seeking consistent performance, with a good understanding of S&R. It's not an exact science, but if your timing was in the ballpark with a decent stop in place, a trader could regularly capture a good trend for an ample amount of points.

I was going to post some old charts as an example of the kind of trading conditions I am accustom to seeing and contrast them against recent market conditions... but I'm feeling lazy and I'd rather have a drink now.
