How much out of potential gains is one willing to put on line to test set ups is always the question.

Back to Test Support at 2849

Rather than support i would call this area where shorts booked profits or were exhausated. For support on which we can count on with confidence to try long will be an area from which a significant turnaround came to change direction of the trend.

It's sure is a good area to cover shorts as daily and weekly ATR had been hit for CC. I am holding some cars to see if next leg down is in order.

Out of this news, i was focused on following this morning

" According to the agency, the decline was led by Saudi Arabia, which cut production by approximately 69,000 barrels per day to 9.6 million."

A production cut by Saudi Arabia- was the reason for my longs this morning. But when CL reversed and did not reacted to this news , i realized maybe something else is underway and therefore shorted 76.90 area. I hope i don't get fooled twice today. Constant flexibility and adjustment is needed to survive. Otherwise traders wonder what happened to bullish/bearish candles they were so closely watching all day long.

4.30 pm today API news came. I do not know what the report findings are but based upon price action my short set up is not looking good. I was thinking that the way CL reacted today into the close is an early tell sign to API report.

Still holding shorts but cut down the size. All this drama for nothing. Key point is that one has to take all the set ups. One can not cherry pick.

Is this the Report....i think this is not.
According to the IEA report, the use of coal and oil will steadily plateau, while natural gas use and consumption of low-carbon fuels like nuclear power and wind and solar will grow the strongest.

News and Reports are too much to keep up with while Trading.....

I can not believe that i traded Crude for 4 years day in and day out and never looked atGC, NG, ZS, KC, CC etc. Looking back i think the main reason was that these beauties require wider stop loss than i felt comfortable with. What a dumb ass reason/logic.

i can not believe it that before your advice i was strugling if use 10tick or 16tick stop to get ...?
now all in points
in this test i have to reach 450points in 10 days
today i got the half



thanks T
