Online Trading Academy Encourages Investor Patience During the Summer Months

Trading and investing in times of low volume and volatility demands knowledge of different markets

Irvine, CA, June 3, 2014 - Online Trading Academy instructor, Gabe Velazquez, is encouraging investors to have patience and gain knowledge in slow summer months to maintain a high balance for when volatility returns. The summer trading months have low volume and volatility due to the fact that investors are vacationing and not remaining active in the markets, but traders need to remain vigilant.

With fewer trades being made, markets can be manipulated more than when there is a higher volume of activity. Maintaining an account balance that can handle the increase in margins is the key to profiting when heightened volatility returns.

When avoiding the markets is not applicable, it is important to diversify. On any given day, there will be one or more markets that will be moving, offering the opportunity for financial gain. According to Velazquez, summer trends show that Grains is an active market that is moving.

Since low risk, high probability trades are not common during the summer months, patience is critical. “If investors don’t exercise patience they will tend to force trades in a quiet environment,” said Velazquez. “If the markets are choppy and not offering quality opportunities the best thing for a trader is to find another area of interest outside of trading, and go pursue it.”
