I am long tonight, 2 @ 96.12. Took one off +15. Stop to 96.08. Can't get hurt at this point. Friday's reversal was interesting. Obvious serious pushes up. Maybe they were just nailing the obvious shorts, I may never know the difference sometimes. And, CL is in a trading range, no clear sign.

But I had expected CL to break the lows in what remains the "blue zone", and when it didn't and could barely even think of pulling back the rest of the day...

I don't think of this as a great trade really, just a hunch. Actually working on something else in my mind tonight. I am in a risk free position as I sit. Why stop a profit? I'm just going to watch my stop for awhile.

You are on the other side of my trade? That is hiliarious. I am locked in now.

The wireless in hotels is horrible. Great signal strength does not equal great speed. Plug in if you are going to trade live.
