Well CL did not break 74 area despite my best hopes (lol). Turned out to be a scratch type of day for me- so far unless short into close get somewhere. Planning to hold during Globex. Short 75.80 area.

Did went long 75.50 area . Was hoping to get an exhausation bar to 76.50 area to short right in CL face but no go. Exhausation bar shorts gives quick 40-60 ticks and then slow down move. This short without exhausation bar will be a slow dreadful back and forth move.


CL at 76.50 area. Only surprise is that CL did not hit that area during RTH when i was long. Short.

Cover some 76.10 and planning to add to shorts if CL bounces higher. Ideal target 75 area. First target 75.50 area.

Damn CL reversed from 75.50 area at the speed of light. I had to cover short at the market and go long. As usual all kinds of conflicting news as to why part of the equation. CL move from 75.50 to 76.70 very orderly, subsequent pullback very orderly but this reversal very UNUSUAL to say the least. Longs and Longs till the freight train stops. Any short attempts will require a pretty wide stop loss due to UNUSUAL price action underway in CL.

' European Stocks Jump as Draghi Repeats Inflation Pledge"

Catalyst to short the hell out of Euro. Short.

In situations like these CL can RUN beyond what most of us can comprehend. Out some 77.30. I took some off at 76.30 area thinking to add on pullbacks to 75.60 area. There was none.

All right pretty lady time to pullback some. From this point on ONLY shorts for me. Purpose of covering shorts is to add to shorts into bounces. This does not mean CL can not make new highs and 77.80 is high for the day. $80 is stop loss area for me. Plan to focus on CL, NG and GC for most of the day. To try longs in 77 area BAR is very high for me. I do not anticipate a situation like that coming up today based on probabilities.

Nice set ups on this size chart today.....i will have a new workstation with more monitors in the coming weeks to help with Trading more markets.

Hi Sandptrader,
Do you have a list of your indicators and a template for your Ninja charts on this thread? I'm trying to build a similar look for some of my charts but have not been successful - any help would be appreciated - thanks!

Cover most 76.50 area and still hloding shorts. No longs for me till FLUSH down shows up. Picking longs within macro bearsih trend set up BAR is very high. CL can drop another 100 ticks in a NY minute and if she gets stuck in a box- get your scalps from long side and RUN. Serious buying or monetum is tough to hide, for example during Euro session this morning. Till then it's just guessing based upon 2 candles up and one down etc.
