That market evolvs constantly is no news. The thing here is if we are able to adapt fast enough to survive on it. What will then, this 2012 bring? More banking jitters, higher chances of default in Europe, and more runs to the dollar on a continuous improving economy would be my educated guess.
Correlations may stay, or may change; I’m seing the beginning of a return to the dollar/stocks correlation we had before the 2007 crisis, yet is early to comfirm it. Maybe tomorrow’s NFP in the US will gave us a good hint.
However, I found more interesting the fact that several professional traders, had based their new year resolutions in one, just one thiny word (with a huge meaning): DISCIPLINE. Either with masters en economy or psychology, the one thing in common is working on improve discipline. Something we all know, but not so sure if we all apply when trading. If you are looking for a successful 2012, then work on your weak points by stablishing a disciplined working plan.
I particularly loved Walter Peters, and Yohay Elam remarks, and be sure, I’ll be watching those two to see what they did by the ends of 2012 ;)
