@rwh03001

Hello, Yes i normally use the 233 tick chart and i still use it, i decided to use the 89 tick chart because i need to see clearly when the market is retracing and my entries get better and cleaner, in the 89 tick i can see when the market is slowing, more clearly and faster than the 233 tick, this combined with my swings i can project better the fibonacci Tool.

yet the 233 still is my main and default gun to trade this markets... the CL and GC are very fast markets, one need speed and time to make money,...this two charts 233 and 89 help me read the speed of market and have some detail in it..

Hope it helps.

Cheers.

JD

You generally use the 233 tick chart. What prompted you to switch to 89? Do you just choose one that seems to be giving signals for that day?

GM all,


Remember to change your contract con CL from 02-03 to 03-03, volume has changed to the March Contract.

OPEX Alert: This morning is the third Friday of the month, which means we are in Options Expiration today. Look for early-morning opportunities leading into a slow end of the morning as trader hit the exits earlier than usual.

Ok,.

My Opening Range for the Crude Oil today,

High: 96.53
Low: 96.24

A range of 29 Ticks...will see the market wants to break on of this two levels, if breaks 96.53 i will test the Previous High of day at 96.90.

If breaks below 96.24 it will want to test Previous day low at 95.47.

so watch this out...as it moves...

JD.

Just as a question, if its not a secret how many contracts (position) do you guys trade? i am usually not more than 3 contracts, as i consider cl a very volatile contract and a smooth change can change my account considerably

Interesting how the market respect this levels,

i have been using this balance line level since i started trading, and i think is good to let this know to other traders,
what we do (all traders that use this method) is:

PHOD+PLOD/2, for example yesterdayīs high was 96.90 and the low was 95.47 if we take this:
96.90+95.47 = 192.37/2= 96.185 approx. next number 96.19.

you can see today this number was tested to the tick and triggered a trade that resulted in a move of about 45 ticks.

you can add this levels for the day before up to 4 days back in time.

it will give you this levels that some call "Hedge Fund Levels"...

Hi JD,

I understand that you use a 5 minute opening range because you deal in small time-frame bars/trading, but my initial guess would be that the 5 minute opening range wouldn't really be indicative of anything that you could use to forecast the day's trend. Obviously it works for you. What do you think it is that makes the 5 min OR significant when the big boys probably aren't basing anything off of it?

Hello,

I think the importance relies on the "price action".. i mean,,,if i see the market is rejecting one of this levels (5 min OR) then the market is giving it the relevance probably the big boys arenīt basing anything off of it...but the market is noting the levels...if you see the past three to four days,...the 30 min OR share the price with the 5 min OR...coincidence...???... so at this point i would ask ...which or what the big boys look at...if they look at OR...it seems they do...but i donīt know it...i just want to trade the price...and what the market is telling me... it could be the 5, 30 Min OR...the One hour Opening range...donīt know...i use this 3 ORīs....and i trade the market rejection on this levels...so at the end..i will trade what the market is giving relevance...no matter which OR is....

Well today...will be a good day....

i would like to start my day with thought i read "One of the marks of excellent people is that they never compare themselves with others. They only compare themselves with themselves and with their past accomplishments and future potential." – Brian Tracy


Today we have Crude Oil Inventories and as always the market likes to play before the news release...so we need to keep the eyes wide open...

Price has reached the balance line 95.93 From yesterday.. it managed to break it...but it is under this level now...

We have an INSIDE DAY so far...

iīll wait for market open to draw my levels...ORīs .

Price is approaching the 5 min 61.8% level, watch this out, as it could break it and the news hit the wire!!!

Interesting Move!!!:...

I closed my 3rd trade of the day...

positive...

JD

Ok.. Crude seems a bit undecided...normally if price goes UP before News release ..it is the possibility that the number will come negative and price could fall...(not always)---

but my bias are short...i expect the market correct me...

Well this trade went as expected,
i sold at the predicted zone, once again the price respected the 5 Min Opening range, market closed me out as i didnt change my trailing stop settings...but ended with 7-8 ticks...not bad to start,,,

5 Minute Opening Range:
High: 96.53
Low: 96.32

30 Min Opening range
High: 96.53
Low: 96.10

Now, the market could try to rotate itīs bias up....we have New Home Sales News report at 10:00 EST.

Be aware..

5 Minute CL Chart...

JD


My personal criteria for scalping CL is 11 ticks. I won't enter a setup if the expected reaction is at 15 ticks, I'm looking for setups that have an expected movement of 30 ticks in the direction I need to go. This gives me more room for leeway and more chance of getting 11 ticks.

That's because CL, when not sluggish, will burn through 20 or 30 ticks in a matter of minutes, meaning it can go 15 ticks pretty easily against my entry point, leaving me much less room to work with and so I have to adjust my profit target possibly to the point of break-even. No point in doing that several times in a row, hence the reason I look for the larger setups.

I'm just saying, that's my personal approach. I'm not critiquing your method at all. Nobody can critique anybody who consistently makes money trading, regardless of what method you use.

But when I'm looking to short it, I'm looking for the lower boundary of the resistance area to be at least 30 ticks higher than the higher boundary of the support area. And since I use the ticker a lot, these areas may not be actually evident on the chart, they may be evident only on the ticker.

I should say that's for shorting when there is known support below.... The other kind of shorting is on downward plunge or downward breakout of some kind, in which case I don't have a predetermined profit target, I let the price behavior determine it.

Well this week was a good week, i think the market did what it was written to do...to say it with a fancy word... then the market behaved just like that... a market,...one of the most important things a trader most know is "to know the way of the market"..and frankly i think to achieve such a knowledge requires a lot of experience, years and years of time...or...the dedication to see chart after chart until you see a pattern and recognize it just with a blink of an eye, for me i have come to a point that always return to a one single pattern that now i call "Breaking Two Step" pattern, i have tried a lot of systems that promises large sums of profit but almost every system do not teach about trading management, profit management, mind and emotions management.

i will use this space here at futures.io (formerly BMT) to make a thinking and say:
we are about to finish the first month of this new year, and the question could be: have you been profitable at least this three weeks? do you think you are going to end the month in the green?, for me itīs been hard to fight my fears and emotions, the market give me everyday invaluable lessons, and is a great teacher...it always probes you are right or wrong reading on it....

itīs been a hard way to become profitable for me...i still average 18-25% weekly...i have had to put an spreadsheet to order my thoughts and have control on every trade i do almost every day and follow my trading performance, but i can say it was worth the time, the effort...

I really hope you find your own pattern, setup and become profitable....

just my two cents.

added the image of my own setup on what i call the perfect setup:leading you to a perfect trade.

Right on target. Light Crude trades nicely at support and resistance. If wrong, just reverse.

shane


1. Look at the electronic ticker. Bids and offers will stall and reverse at those levels

2. Look for areas of price congestion on 15- and 30-minute bar charts

3. Look for areas of price congestion on the 2000 volume bar chart

Work with areas, not individual price levels.

GM all,

Hope you all have had a great weekend!!!...

Crude Oil trading for today is a bit tricky, 5 Minute chart indicates Tone to the upside, but it will retrace before go up further, my levels that the price could bounce could be the 61.8% and 50%.



in my 89 tick chart i see a possible short trade, but letīs see what the market does...

Price should come below the WMA 200 to plan a short trade.

GM all,

Market has set the TONE...we want to trade with the tone...a break of 97.32 with enough strength will bring prices near 97.60...if market fails to break this level price could test 96.68-96.81 zone...and look for continuation.

Opening ranges:

5 Minute: High 96.82 Low: 96.49
30 Minute: High 97.32 Low: 96.49

Letīs trade....

JD

Hello GM all,

After some time out of the country i have not been able to trade, but iīm back with batteries charged!!...to continue trading, this week is a bit special since there are no major news events, so the market could stay in a volatile and sensible manner and we could make some ticks!!...


Today i see prices in Crude are testing Previous day Low 95.27 and Prior week low 95.05 and so far this levels have sustained the short wave, letīs see where the market goes at market Open.

Crude went up like crazy and crossed very important levels. Prior day Low was tested, and Prior day high was broken,

When you are away from trading a while, do you sim trade for a bit to get back in the rhythm of your method, or are you that confident, you can jump right back in?

Hello, Good Morning All.!!!

Well, the market today seems tired, we have a price range,. and having Bernanke speech today could make some movement in the market, 50 SMA is flat saying that is time to sell the high, buy the low, until a breakout happens,
Price is under Yesterdays VWAP, and also todayīs, since the 50 SMA is flat the opening range trade could be a bit hard to catch.

How to spot this trades,


Step 1

Identify scanning to the left the previous two swing lows,


Step 2

Identify highest swing high,

Step 3

In the intersection of the two previous lines, there will be your entry point,

target? measure the entry point to the highest swing high and project this from the entry point down to find the target.


Stop? it could be hard stop or 10 ticks above the market structure,




....

hope it helps...

JDNeeman.

Price is still below the 200 WMA and 50 SMA so price is under pressure and will take some time to go up further, price did tested 93.17 had 7 ticks of fire and then went back up 20 ticks, we need to see the 0.0% fib line broken and retested to long above the current price level if price fails to sustain the up move it will probably come down to test the 50% level.

Ok..

today i saw an example of the 123 rule when price touches and tests a defined level,

in this case the Reverse Short level 88.42 it was tested 3 times, the first two were sell signals and the third has the 70% chance to be a breakout, this is a rule that happens quite often and you could use it to grab some ticks from the market.

Hello,


Well, I just closed this position i took, the first trade was bad since the beginning and closed me out after i moved the stop loss, since it wasn't a valid sell signal, after that came the retest of 87.93 level and the rest is history...price came to my target i closed the position earlier since i went to a quick meeting.

this is very good i will be sharing my levels to whom find it useful.

Hi JD.... I have been looking at this thread from the beginning and have not posted anything in quite a while. I noticed in March and April, you seemed to firm up the horizontal lines on your charts and started placing labels on each. Some of your lines look like those I use: H/L of today, H/L of yesterday, Daily pivots, H/L of last 5 days, H/L of last 10 days.

My first question is are all of these lines automated and based on the current day as well as prior days?

Are your s/r, weak stop and reverse, pivot reverse, top of trading range, major s/r line, bottom of trading range, pivot reverse, weak stop and reverse and ultimate s/r based on prior support and resistance areas on longer term charts, fibs, pivot levels, etc?

how are the following lines constructed: long level, breakout up level, resistance/support, reverse short level, reverse long level, short level and breakout down level?

I am not asking how you trade these lines, just how they are constructed so I can compare to my lines. For example, I went long off of a pullback just above my daily pivot and my daily pivot looks like your "pivot reverse".

thanks in advance and I really enjoy reading your journal.
