Crude Oil trading

Hello All,


I have found that there are not so good forums talking to real CL trading, i just came here and see that there is a lot of trader dedicated to Crude, and i would like to share what ive learned and continue learning from all of you, basically i use an intraday strategy my trades go for 10-40 ticks, average 20 ticks, i use Market Profile, ACD, stochastics, price patterns, i will describe one of my strategies the one that is the most profitable, and maybe some could test it, and share with us your own experience. I use NinjaTrader 7, with Global Futures and AMP clearing, i used to trade using Penson Futures (now knight futures).


What you need:

1. 10 range Chart, plot EMA 13 and 150
2. Stochastics 3,9,3

only this for now.



STRATEGY:

1. IDENTIFY

a. Plot the PLOD (Previous Low of Day) level
b. Plot the PHOD (Previous High of Day) level
c. Plot the most important swing lows/highs


This give and idea of where the market would trade (range) and if buyers/sellers fail on this levels, (see attached image)


d. Most Important channels (Asia & Europe Session)
and channel developing in the US Session (if there is any channel) if not look for range area.

2. FILTER TRADES

My approach is combine zones and levels with the stochastic levels, we know that 20 is oversold and 80 is overbought, COMBINING this with PLOD, PHOD, Swings we can filter our trades and take a better decision at the moment to pull the trigger,

When we trade in channel we want to sell high channel level and buy low channel level

But filtering the trade means that you will ONLY trade in the direction of the channel (UP or Down)

and you double filter is the stochastic level support the trade, how? lets say the price is in the upper level of the channel and the stochastic is at 80 and crossing it down, this would be a filtered trade and a high percentage winning trade, you have applied double filter, OR you could use THE EMAs, "NORMALLY" when price trades under the 150 EMA you ONLY want to sell retracements, as indicated in the image 3, if you combine this three you are trading as a professional!. taking decisions based on price structure and behaviour.


We will keep adding on to this idea and if you could please share your comments and enhance it!!:..


Best Regards.


JDNeeman.

06/14/2012 Crude Oil trade


Only one trade today in the Crude due to some personal problem, but at the end the important thing is that the strategy is working and we made an analysis based decisions,


I saw (when i arrived my desk) that the price was exactly at the Value Area High from Yesterday at the top of the channel, and stochastic at the 100 level, since the price was right at a major level, and buyers were unable to break it, a reversal was imminent, we decided to sell at those highs @ 83.78 with a stop loss of 20 ticks and profit of 20 ticks,

the result was good and profitable.

Any doubt let me know.

see attached image.

June 20th Crude Oil invetories Trade

Hello,

Today we had the Crude Oil inventories
the news came with this numbers:


Wednesday, June 20, 2012 10:30:06 *(US) DOE CRUDE: +2.86M V -1ME; GASOLINE: +940K V +1ME; DISTILLATE: +1.16M V +1.5ME; UTILIZATION: 91.9% V 91.8%E- Gasoline demand -435K at 8.69M bpd - Distillate demand -180K bpd at 3.5M bpd

Have Market Intel? TradeTheNews.com Tip Line -> Click Here

Knowing the crude market personality that likes to fade the news, we saw price surge a bit, although the news analysis said: SELL, because: Higher inventories and NO demand= oversupply! price falls, product cheaper!.

we waited to see the stochastic reach the 90 level in the 10 range chart, we saw exhaustion and sellers on the tape, so we took the trade, shorting the crude, with a target of 31 ticks.


very good trade, we could have profited a bit more but, we are happy with what we have.


looking to buy now..since the market always retrace at the end of the session.

Trading Using Market Profile

I have been using Market Profile for quite some time, and would like to add my little knowledge about it,

I use Market profile for my day trading, along with PHOD (Previous High of day), PLOD (Previous Low of Day),

Market profile is very extensive i will explain the way i use it and what i use of the MP (Market Profile)

3 important things about it,

VAL: Value Area Low
VAH: Value Area High
POC: Point of Control


The VAL and VAH is the range where the 70% of the action happened in the previous day,
The POC is the Price at which the most TPOs (time sale opportunities) occur in the Market Profile chart
during the previous day. The prices that saw the most activity. Visually the
longest horizontal line.


when we combine the VAL, VAH, PHOD and PLOD, you have your fighting "arena" when this zones are very well defined you can make better and accurate trading decisions, you have your plan predefined, when the price reacts to one of this zones we will know exactly what to do.

when the price is close to one of this areas
what do i do?

i ask myself

1. where is the price at this level?, any double top/bottom?
2. Where is the stochastic? which level? 80?, 20?, 90? 100?
3. Price channel? where is the price respecting the channel? at the top of the channel --> Sell, at the bottom if the channel --> Buy
4. in the time and sales (T&S) window, what do you see? Sellers? buyers? in the filtered T&S what are the big boys doing? buying? selling?,
5. is there speed in the T&S or is passive...slow..

If the price is close to one of this areas and you see in the T&S window speed and buyers/sellers coming a possible break of the level could be around, to the contrary if the price in the T&S window slows down at this levels a possible reversal is around.

this questions when you get used to them are automatic and processed in fractions of seconds in your brain, this give you the ability to make better and informed decisions,


adding more to this....

If the price is below the value area zone (from VAL to VAH) we could expect a negative day, prices could fall, the plan would be sell retracements,

If the price is above the value area zone, we could expect a positive day, price should rise and the plan would be buy pullbacks.

NOTE: if the price is below/above the value area zone, at some time the price could try to reverse and try to get in back into the value area zone, then you should be looking at the 80% rule!!!.... (you can look at this, i have attached a document about it...)


I have attached an image explain the value area zone strategy and trading decisions.


Hope this help someone.

if any question please let me know.

JDNeeman.

Market Analysis June 22 2012

Good Morning all,

I just wanted to share quickly my analysis for the day,

As of this moment the price has attempted to get back in the Value area Zone, testing once the Value area low level @ 78.74, we have an inside day since the price is above the PLOD (previous low of day), price is above the open level @78.11, at 9:00 AM EST price could test the open level then test the VAL again, at this moment we dont have US dollar correlation, will see later in the morning, we have major resistance zone near the VAH @ 80.30, market could be volatile since is friday, avoid trading after 11:30 EST.

have a great trading!!

have attached some images....

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.
