While trading some commodities I noticed how the market suddenly became extraordinary volatile at around 8.30 AM EST - Someone explain an amateur trader? Thanks
always check whats going on in terms of news before you trade. if you're an amateur and don't know how to trade news then it is best to stay out of the market at these times as they are usually volatile and fast moving. Yellen said some shit about the US economy and the markets responded.

What would you recommend in terms of general news updates?
Also, how significantly are oil and commodities such as gold and silver correlated? When oil goes they seem to go up
The more unstable the economy is (partly due to oil), the more gold goes up
