Trading Stocks At Night

Chronic Town - R.E.M.

Adapted from early R.E.M. (YouTube)

I lost some money on the Floor I felt the market’s changed for all
The fleeting moves from 9 to 4 just didn’t seem to be too real
The market’s nothing but a farce, Sun servers churning SPY somewhere
There is no time for hesitance -- trading stocks at night has got to work

Trading stocks at night, trading stocks at night

Most traders go to bed at ten 
Crank your Keurig for a change
The charts are changing every month
They say nights have the biggest gains

We mellowed out in garbage time but then saw bids from 2 to 4  
It felt odd not to see the sun, trading stocks at night had a strange flow
I see the Russell find a floor, I felt the rocket flame and launch
Price ceiling broke through like glass doors
that 12 hours prior were hard as steel

Trading stocks at night, trading stocks at night

Resisting says that you’re not young
Why not try it once or twice?
The tightest band since ‘51
They said we couldn’t break this range

As the last floor traders snore I felt the market pad the score
The price swing bark became a roar, the bid stack spike to green surreal
We mellowed out in garbage time but then went nuts from 2 to 4
We cashed out long before the sun, trading stocks at night was never slow

Trading stocks at night …
