There're 2 Inside Bar trades before the release of the crude oil report and nothing after that as at this second! The 12/16 Long strategy did well (24 ticks) while the 16/16 one only made 2 ticks. Money management makes the difference. For me, I am fine to SOH as my No 1 priority is to develop "good" trading habits!

Well, the day is not over and maybe an Inside Bar will be formed between 1:00 pm and 1:45 pm right before the FOMC meeting minutes. Else tomorrow will be another Successful trading day!

Continue enjoying your day. Now I will dig out some food to feed my belly .. smile ..

Time to pack and close the trading station!

No Inside Bar set up after release of the crude oil report. No trade 15 minutes before and after an important news. For this afternoon will be the FOMC meeting minutes at 2:00 pm. Sooooo, I look forward to tomorrow.

I'm a disciplined trader!!

Enjoy a Great afternoon.

Have a Successful day.

To trade CL, need to SOH when we have Natural Gas report too, ie 15 minutes before and after. We have 2 Medium news at 9:15 am and 2 High ones at 10:00 am, then the Natural Gas report at 10:30 am. Another morning with long line of news.

Let's see if there's an Inside Bar set up falling in-between else I will be patiently waiting for one after 10:45 am when all important news are done for today .. smile ..

As mentioned in my earlier post, we had tons of news this morning. Glad that they're now over. Total 4 Inside Bar trades and only one was official.

First 2 - Very close to news. SOH for me while my sim strategies suffered!

Third - It's my first time placing a pair of OCO orders (Long and Short with the suggested SL, 30 for this trade) immediately upon completion of the Inside Bar. Time passed by (over 8 minutes) .. still waiting (not me as I already had the orders in) .. Then I cancelled them just 2 seconds before the Long got filled!! What happened? I was in the CL room and saw "suspense"! Thought it's a cancellation warning. Acted immediately. Did I mention I type 100+ wpm?! My strategy got its Long and PT 12.

Clarification: It's NOT a cancellation warning. Just a comment that it's suspenseful waiting for our order to get filled LOL! Lesson learned ..

Fourth - This Inside Bar was completed right at 12:00 noon. It's been extremely slow and volume dropped substantially. SOH.

Let's see if I may get one Inside Bar opportunity in the afternoon. Else tomorrow is another Great day!

Beth (You will have a glimpse of my CCI Chart (indicators/template from Jeff's CCI thread + I overlayed it with WoodiesCCI) as I am learning how to spot continuation trade during the lapse minutes .. smile ..)

No Inside Bar set up in the afternoon. While waiting for a high probability set up, I have been practising what I learned (or remembered). Did 2 sim trades today, ie

1. Short when price broke DB. Made 12 ticks.
2. Short based on a Reversal bar set up (magenta long tail bar, high volume and after a big move). Made 8 ticks.

I SOH and utperform the strategies (2 Long and 2 Short incl 2 losers) -7 ticks. Bear in mind that they traded throughout and did not take news into consideration. Warning: Do not learn from them LOL!

Emotion: Quite calm esp when I was waiting for my order to get filled. I did place a Sell Stop around 2:00 pm when the bar might become an Outside bar. Did not mature. Hmm, I am going to give myself a better grade on that ... from C- to B+ .. great improvement in less than 2 weeks .. haha ..

How am I going to spend my afternoon? An early yoga session as I plan to attend a New Trader Night at 3:45 pm offered by the Woodie CCI Club. Hopefully it will help my understanding on Jeff's set ups.

Continue enjoying your day.

Beth

There were 2 Inside Bar trades. Unfortunately, the first one was at 9:00 am (High Production news) and one at 11:45 am when most major players have already left for the weekend. It's really slow and volume dropped.

Sooo did I struggle to be a "good" girl for the first signal? I don't recall having itchy fingers. Maybe my strategies on sim helped?!! No trade today and spent learning more on CCI patterns during the lapse hours.

In conclusion, I keep the 16 ticks which I made on Tue .. the only trading morning this week. I am now better trained and be patient .. haha .. Hey, I just broke a spell .. keeping over $100 that I made for the week!!
