Journal Notes:
Received an interesting e-mail from the brokerage where I place my trades on 6/15. Making it clear that they offer no trading advice, they nevertheless gave the heads up on the Greek Parliamentary vote on the following Sunday. It was just a statement of potential volatility in the market to come, so it was a reminder for people to assess exposure so they can make sure they have stop losses in tow, close any overexposed positions, etc.

I can’t remember getting that kind of heads-up e-mail before.

I’m a fan of volatility. Even with short-term losses, I usually pick up extra positions that bounce the other way before too long and I find volatility to be good profit opportunities, so I made no changes to my trading strategy. As it turns out, the result of the elections was such that the excessive volatility never materialized. In fact, June was an overall quiet month.
