Sot pops up in many of my trading searches on YouTube. I listen to youtube on my multiple drives out to the NorthShore.
I subscribe to various youtube channels like, (formerly BMT), sot, and others get listened to by me daily. I am going with my gut and will try to make a local trading buddy.

People going with Sot may be misled oar have their own edge.

One issue I saw/heard and didn't like is a video from last week. On CL which has been on a big trend down. The room used a 50tick stop loss on a head and shoulder pattern. Using 2 lots. They to my eyes took the breakout to the downside. Not saying it didn't work but a 50tick sL on CL?
Edit this is an amateur play, not saying I wouldn't take it in large part for scalp, but it has retail trader all over it.

Another related note is I thought they use profiling, either volume or market. What I saw in other videos was use of the footprint profile, Gomis type with some twist.
Who trading Profile uses a 50tick stop? On 2 lots. For fairness he was posting candlesticks in the video.
Volume profile from what I barely grasp tightens stops incredibly cause you see the order flow. So a 50tick sL is insane.
