Just wondering if anyone has ever experienced Fed day on the CL. What it was like, if goofy or tradable?

This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer


The Fed, IF it makes a move, can effect the US dollar and that in turn can have a big effect on CL, so be careful.. (strong US dollar usually means weak CL )

I turn my strategies off about 30 min before Fed announcement and leave off for about 30 min after. If I am in a position before that window I will exit. Can get wild gyrations at times depending on what they say. Crude is fast on a slow day. Add in any kind of fuel and it can get dangerous. My main worry is stop getting jumped by a large amount. The only other time I turn off is when the crude weekly inventory report comes out.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."
