Here are my trades on CL this morning. Missed a big runner by moving stop to BE. I think I'm not doing that any more. Gotta give them room. Caught a few later on to make up for it.

Normally I wouldn't trade the news but this morning has been non-stop news so not much choice. Euro & YM untradable.

Still experimenting with CL for timeframe and targets. I think no set rule will work, you really have to know how to cut the losers short. I'm not good at it.

Today CL : +$358
Yesterday : -$223

Two trades, fib retrace....+8. breakdown from lower high..+10 should have stayed with it.

So, this morning a total of +18.

How many ticks are you trying to capture?

Captured ticks

+18 per trade...... more of a scalping mentality. +7 on the first portion,+11 on the balance.

Once my first objective of +7 has been met I move the stop to -7 from entry. If the second objective is not met within a few minutes I pull the plug. On the first trade I'm glad I pulled the plug... on the second I wish I would have let it play out as my second objective would have been met.

Thanks for the tip on posting better charts !

TRO,

Thank you for sharing. Very interesting. How many bars back do you draw the lines on top and bottom of the candles? (for the H1 trades). And do you have an indicator doing the drawing for you, or do you do it yourself?

Set and forget... let the market do its thing.

Then there is no "wishing".

You know your SL and TP when you enter, so the only thing to be determined is which one get hit first and the market will do that for you.
