Nice job. Given the volatile environment right now, trading is more risky than usual. There is a thin line between volatile = good, and volatile = gambling. Nonetheless, enjoy your long weekend

Yeah, I know what you mean. At the moment this market gives me lots of opportunities to capture movements of more than 1% in the indices but it's also very frustrating with all the sudden changes in the intraday trend. Tough, but interesting times.

Bought CL at 97.10. I'm not sure if I really think stuff will keep going up from here today but it's worth a shot. What I do know is that I'm not bearish, not yet.

Oil feels awfully weak but I'm long at 97.00, the support at 96.90 looks pretty solid.

Long, 1071.25. Wrong side of the intraday trend but I got a hunch.
