Hi,

thanks for starting this thread, it is an interesting read. I don't trade CL but I do use camarilla pivots on other futures. I was wondering if you are using the prior day's close of CL for input to the pivots? I ask because when I look at the camarillapivots as shown on Emini Day Trading, , for CL with the contract month shown on your chart, there are some differences in the levels.

On your chart (of today) looking at H4 - H41 here are the differences:

Format:
Level : your chart : mypivots.com : Diff

H4 : 106.33 : 106.24 : -.09
H3 : 105.92 : 105.83 : -.09
H2 : 105.78 : 105.69 : -.09
H1 : 105.65 : 105.56 : -.09

Again i appreciate your thread and look forward to seeing more of your thoughts.

Sorry, I also meant to suggest that the differences might be due to the settlement price being different than the close price.


Regards

well i just finished my day trading on the higher levels,

The price is still testing today´s high, and it will try to break this or capitulate or be rejected on high volume, price will tend to go higher.

ended my day with $300.00 positive, after a negative trade of -$300 still fighting with anxiety, (I need to overcome this) but the second trade was good for $600.00, ending with $300 positive.-. good day.

Hello @Tasker_182;357679

Regarding the difference, you are correct, since i use an indicator it performs the calculations quite different than the website mentioned,

It is good to hear someone using the same tools!!

Good Trading today!

Do you feel that the difference in using the settlement price verses the close price is irrelevant in the placement of the pivot lines (as in it is close enough?)

Appreciate your thoughts.

CL Levels On Order Flow

Hello,

GM All, Today seems a that will be a slow Day, price is testing some upper levels, and think the market could surprise us in the hours ahead. It seems to be accumulation for now and then we could have some serious distribution-

Trading with Volume and order FLow CL

Hello,

This morning has started earlier, price is definetely heading lower but surprises could come, right now the price is sitting at a hard level, 102.63 there is very high volume by price activity, and low volume meaning sellers are making pressure to bring the price lower, to 102.28,

Well, i just finished my trading day, 8 minutes my total traded time for today, (on the screen) I have been preparing my self 1 hour ago,

$300.00 Positive, 7 ticks of heat, price went all the way down 2 ticks near my mark on 102.28, my trailing stop took me out the trade.

Price is forming a price range that could turn beneficial in the next minutes.

Order FLow, Volume by price on CL

Hello, GM All,

I just finished my trading day, for a positive $300.00 I had identified the zones the market was testing, using my two indicators Volume and Volume by price (volume zone NT), i worked really well, price was above the WMA 200 this means for me that the pressure will try to continue up and in the process i could make some ticks, price supported itself at 102.78 and this happenned to be a high level on the volume by price meaning some trades and stops, limits could be laying there, trigering some sparks, price went up to 103.06 where is another level of stops and traders positions, and also happens to be the high of the 5 min opening range, so I entered the market @ 102.88 2 contracts, and exit @ 103.03, very good trade, watch this levels,

102.78
103.06
103.27
103.96

To the upper side, Market will try to test this ones,

To the lower side, price needs to break 102.30 to enable 102.20 down to 101.82

JD.
