Trade

Only shorts on my mind. Conext and direction of the trades were right but timing was off to get paid when position size was right. Not sure why CL will not get sold during 9 to 10.30 am eastern time peroiod which is typically busy time slot and a time slot for most of my trades.

Direction of the trade was very clear all day except we never now when and how the FAT LADY will sing. It's not easy when CL is just stuck in a tight range and every thing looks like a support. Picking bottoms or reversal areas without REAL buying is never a good idea. Our channels, triangles, HVN, LVN etc have very little value. Longs made sense yesterday at 49.66 for me as some buying showed up and today since NY open there has been none. Looking at charts and saying this is support etc. only goes so far. PRICE has no value.

Trading

Tim Seymour- of fast money at CNBC has been saying for 2 months now to buy Oil becuase one may not get a chance to buy at these prices. He put the caveat that CL may go to 35 etc. but what if CL does not go there and just slowly keep going up?

What a piece of logic. He said couple of days ago " Considering where US $ is he is very encouraged by CL price action" (lol)

CL has only pulled back 7% since he spoke. I am sure he is $ cost averaging and buying with both hands. He could have been buying with both hands , legs and every thing else but YTD he has nothing to show for. It's not easy being a SWING trader either. I am not sure where his STOP LOSS is but for a Money Manager it's a death sentence where one has been building a position for 3 months, nothing to show for after 3 months and then getting stopped out.

Trading

Do not trade without it. There were nothing but shorts in ES, TF, GC since last Friday at least. Traders get so focused on their levels that they do not realize for example ES got sold off 100 full points in 3 days while they got 2 points here and 4 points there and after adding stop outs they are back to where they started at best.

Note: I do not trade ES. Just using ES as an example. I prefer TF but context and trades are similar.

Trading

I was hoping for a bounce during Globex to get a better location to short but no go. In my mind there is always 2 sides to a coin.

1) Price action is so weak that it does not matter just short it. But i have experienced many times CL bouncing 50-100 ticks while rubber band is stretched.

2) I can say no need to put on a trade. There is no way of knowing what CL will do. Wait for a bounce or wait till DOE report comes out. But then a voice comes out asking what if CL gets sold off 100 to 150 ticks before report comes out?

How to decide? It came down to asking one question. Has anything changed since you started shorting CL yesterday? Answer was NO, so i took the short.

Out flat 48.20. If we did not have upcoming DOE report at 10.30 am , i would have held some shorts. I typically wait 15 minutes after DOE report to decide what to do.

Trading

Sitting on Hands since covering shorts at 48.20 area. Will try longs if some signs of exhausation to the downside or buying shows up. I can not initiate a new short at 47.40 area since i can not define risk. Sitting on sidelines is also a trading strategy/set up.

Trading


Short 48.42 NY open. Cover 47.72. Looking for longs now. No need to rush to take a position. It takes a long time to get paid with lot of head fakes in between.
