Balance broke lower shorted 5260 as DOE # came out got 30 ticks but was wanting more only to see stopout at 56. Tried again at 5260 scaled at 5209/5183/5140 all out. Not many times you get a chance on a rebound like today. 15 tick stop above 5280 was good enough to find out if you are right for 75-100 ticks. Now no more good ideas. Mostly we get a larger than normal range on EIA# days but really have no good setups or ideas. Wait for FOMC next

Quoting 
The United States Oil Fund, ticker "USO," is set to jump into the futures market this week, rolling a huge share of the outstanding U.S. oil futures contracts from May into June.

Traders are keeping a keen eye on the exchange-traded security, set to roll out of its more than 60,000 West Texas Intermediate futures contracts for May delivery into June, as volatility continues to rock the crude market.

May-June spread was 1.25 as per yesterday's settlement. A little wider right now.

EDIT figures I shouldn't have trusted CNBC for full information. The roll has already been happening.
May-June spread was 1.43 on April 6th, the day before roll started.

The roll started April 7th and continues until April 10th.

Still need more people to post though. I ve seen on other threads how people get admonished but no fear here. At least not from me. I just post to show how auction theory works. Since there are a lot of critics of that esp random line theory. It's always If...Then scenario running in my head. Two important levels above 5209 and 5228-29 so far really weak. Drift around until FOMC bears have all the chance to push lower down to 5075

Reshort after DOE report Cover some more as CL got stuck around 51.40 for 40 minutes. But i am not going long till evidence of buyers shows up. CL up 10% in 2 days and down 4.75% today. What's there not to like about trading CL?

So far there is NO BID for CL so staying short. Looking at where price was yesterday and then saying there are buyers or support without any evidence from today PRICE ACTION mostly means one thing, -ve SURPRISES. There is a REASON our heads SPIN or we get headache becuase CL tend to SURPRISE.

Even i got tired of holding shorts this long so only left with the RUNNER but there were no longs for me, so far.

I'm getting crushed.
X/Z down more than most spreads, and F/G down less than most ~ hurting the most.
They settled X/Z 1c to high last night, which explains some of the X/Z move.
