How To Trade During A Financial Panic

Serge Milman, a trader for Ronin Asset Management, explains what it’s like to make your living trading stocks in the middle of a market panic.  “Land mines are everywhere,” he says. The trick is to trade where the volatilty is. Where’s that? “It’s where the fear is. Banks. Financials. Insurance,” he says.

If the world is really coming to an end, it’s out of my hands and yours.
