does anyone trade shares (short term, end of day) in horizontal (ranging) markets successfully? bedford (author) reckons one could opt to not trade them when the market is going sideways while Hull suggests his 'breakout' method. I'm guessing it's harder to make profits during these times, or not too difficult? and what types of patterns or trades would you be looking for? any rules for taking profit? just something for me to think about. later on down the track I'd really like to be able to trade at all times if it's not too difficult.
