Any idea how to trade CL on Inventories Day?

Hi guys

I'm just seeing that trading on Inventoies Day usually gives me surprises, some good, some bad, but thinking that maybe is better to avoid it:

1- If you trade before the news you could get stuck by a range move

2- If you wait after the news came, which what I do always sometimes the price moves into a big backward move and it's difficult to know when the price is stable to make a good trade...

How do trade this day guys??? or you just don't trade that day???

Thanks to all

That's a question I've asked myself a few months back.

What is your trading style, what do you do ?

My main strategy is to do intraday trend-following and when I look at 40 years of data, trade my strategy every day, or trade it every day at the exception of days that are inventory days, I have the same results, roughly. So for my trading style, on average over a long period of time, inventory day is traded as business as usual.

This is a tricky one.

I typically am very cautious on report days as any surprises can send prices skyrocketing or dropping like a rock.

Usually you'll see market movement in the days leading up to the market report as to what the report is "expected" to say.

In other words, if traders are expecting a bullish report, you'll see prices moving up prior to the report date. But, if the report turns on to be bearish or not as bullish - not what was expected, then this is when we can see big price moves.

Just be careful trading on report days is the best advice I can give. Use stops and/or futures options to minimize risk.

Best wishes,
