Regarding the most recent inside bar signal, can you please elaborate on why you selected that inside bar versus other inside bars that occurred the same day. For example, the inside bars at:

6:10
6:35
6:50
7:45

6:10
6:35

6:10 bar was valid but I don't trade oil until 6:30.
6:35 was not a reversal. Bar closed in the same direction of the move.
6:50 was not a reversal. Price in consolidation.
7:45 is not visible so I can't see what it is. Plus I only take one trade per market per day and I took the 7:30 entry.

My apologies. I thought you were simply trading breakouts of inside bars. I didn't realize that the rules were similar to the reversal bars.

I trade both Inside Bars and Reversal Bars but the rules are the same for both of them. It's just their structure that is different.
