A lot of the market direction for Thursday will be determined by investors setting themselves up for the jobs numbers both from the USA and Canada which are released on Friday. The past two days of selling have been stronger on the TSX than on the American Stock Markets. However 15000 on the TSX is at a point where many traders will be keen to try to place trades for quick profits. These traders are not concerned about whether the market will recover from this pullback. They are just seeking out a couple of days of bouncing stocks to add to their profits around the 100 day moving average.
The recent selling has created some interesting opportunities but with those opportunities there is always risk to capital being placed in a decline.

Downturns are scary but they also create some of the most profitable trades I have done. To protect my capital I designed a trade strategy that has worked well at advising me when to risk my capital and when to hold it back.
