Copy thread

Does anyone have any ideas on the most efficient way to go about saving this electronic journal. Being marked as a "vendor" and such doesn't give me confidence that I'll be around here much longer. This journal has been one of my main trading/journaling outlets and I don't want to lose this information.

Any ideas from some smart, tech-savvy people?

There is no danger of the posts prior to this point being deleted. As I explained in my message to you letting you know what our vendor guidelines are, you are free to continue posting so long as your intention is not to promote your business and that you don't use posts for self-promotion.

I thought from your PM response to me you understood and were fine with it, so not sure what has changed.

But no, there is no way to download the thread.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Hi Merritt,

Thanks for the thread. I really enjoy it!

If you'd like your own offline copy, try out
HTTrack. I use it and really like it. Since this is my first post, I can't send the link, but it's just like the name with a dot com following. Freeware.

You can set the link levels to go really deep, but you'll pick up a lot of other threads too. You might have to run it a couple of times on different pages of the thread to get all the posts.

My response to you was polite. Honestly I felt it a slap in the face to label me a vendor within seconds of me announcing the news. This is a trading journal.

Don't take it personally. There are dozens of new vendors every week, I can't purposely delay labeling them and expect to remember everything. When I see someone is a vendor, they get labeled as a vendor that moment, and they get sent a private messaging informing them of the rules. Then I move on to hundreds of other posts I need to read.

CL

I would love to hear some thoughts from you guys about CL market. For short term trading. What are some things you've learned about it? Personality, pitfalls, technical features, patterns, trend/range axis, news to really watch out for, time of day stuff, day of week, etc) I'm probably going to be stepping into that market a good bit going forward.

Thanks as always for everyone's tremendous support, feedback, and input on things. Much love.

I have traded ES, TF, CL. I trade CL exclusively at present. CL trades more like TF than ES; more a trending instrument than a back and fill instrument(like ES). Therefore, some of your TF strategies might be applicable.

I do not know really your trading plan or how you trade except you seem to trade S/R levels; reversals at key S/R areas and pullbacks to S/R in a trend. You seem to trade very discretionary with this basic concept.

I have never seen a totally discretionary trader trade CL successfully at all. I call trading the low time frames or tick charts on CL "The Devil's Chocolate". It looks so easy to do after the day is done looking at the chart, yet it moves so fast during the day, you are tempted to take a bunch of trades. Its high volatility seems to bring out the worst in discretionary traders. This can lead to seeing patterns not yet developed fully by being anxious, revenge trading due to missing a trade or taking some quick losses, averaging down, cutting profits short, moving stops to BE too soon, or increasing trading size randomly. I am speaking from personal experience here unfortunately.

If you want to insure you keep your capital in tact, I strongly advise that you move closer to some back tested rules(can be based on price action) and trade those. If you do not have a back tested rule with an edge(or set of rules) , I would say the odds are stacked against you trading CL successfully my friend. That is my advice to you.

The speed at which CL moves can bring out some demons in you that you thought were dead, so be cautious my friend.

Shalom,

Wolf
