It's funny.....since I was thinking about the CCI....I made a new template for it......and now that I don't need it.....the indicator makes a lot of sense.

The 100 line is the 34 EMA.

Did my first "live" CL breakout this morning. Had resting orders above and below the 30 min candle at 9am EST. Certainly thought it would go short but made money to the upside. Lots of movement in CL.....will take some getting used to......but thanks for sharing this with us.....

Way to go Papa!!

Don't rush into trading CL. Learn your times of day and keep losses small as CL provides ample opportunity everyday to recoup losses. Are you starting with one contract?

Define your trades well.....know what your set ups are....make them part of your plan and don't make stuff up while you are trading.

Good luck !!!! You are off to a great start.

Yes, just trading one contract and for now doing the breakout of the 8:30 to 9am candle. Still looking at the afternoon candle. Really like using the Virtual Bar superimposed over the 5 min candle to be very helpful. Gives a great feel for what is happening within the 30 min time frame and clearly defines entry points. Nothing else on those charts, so it is the cleanest and simpliest chart I have ever used.

I have watched your thread for about 3 weeks and practiced this trade....but fully intend to very slow....the volatility from 8:30 to 9 this morning caught my attention big time....

I hope that you will do historical reaseach on these two trades (open and close) to get an idea of the % win/loss ....this will give you more confidence about the big picture. Hopefully you have access to historical data.

I did the same and compared it to the d9PSSR. As you can see I like the
d9PSSR alot better. Have been using it for a couple of days. Notice how
it confirms the trend line breaks or pullbacks. Woodies gets you in but not
as quick.

CCI

Skid,

You have the CCI period set on 34........this is different than what I was talking about. On the indicator it has a "PeriodEma" and this comes set stock at 34.

If you set the actual CCI to 34 like you did or 50 like the famous "Dr.Bob" did.....you can use it in an entirely different way.

Here's the same chart you posted with the stock Woodies setting of 14 for the CCI and 6 for the turbo.....Way faster.

Your right. I set everything to 34. lol
I just remember in a choppy market
it will cross the zero line alot. Looks
good today. I guess it works alot like
the LBR. The 14 sets the trend and the 6
is the pullback to show you when to get
in.

Hi Skid, your chart intrigued me because it's a way of using the PSO that I hadn't imagined. So I studied some past days using your settings. There is often a zero line cross of the PSO lead signal when there is a trendline break. This makes sense because the PSO signal line is a de-trended moving average and it oscillates with price.

Your example makes it look really easy to use it as an entry signal, but in studying previous days I found that it usually isn't so easy. I attach an example. I think due to the lagging nature (there is a 5 period moving average there) it can get you in late and if the move is a false one you won't have any room to recover.

Hey Cunparis,

You are right in a choppy go nowhere market you would
get killed using it alone. It is only one indicator I was trying out. The way
I'm trying to trade now is say the PSO crosses the zero line now you look
for a pullback to enter. When I first started trading two years ago I would
use the CCI in this matter and I would take every cross of the zero line. After
my account was getting drained I started uping the ma like in the post 2016.
As young traders we are eager to jump in and alot of times, we have the direction
right only to have the floor traders come take out are stops and then go the way
we were going. So now if it crosses I wait for a pullback to confirm the trend and get
on.
