As usual bullish/bearish calls from very experienced traders were of no use. Best thing to do is let market settle downn, internals giving some clues and then HOLD.

ORL of 1115 to 1125 area- pretty decent size move and counting. But based off my ATR targets, on a rotational day, i will take 6 points.

On CL shorts off ORH and now trying long off 97.20 for rotational move in a tight range , so small size for lunch money.

As posted this morning"CL back to rotation. Short ideal target 97 area and see if longs make sense there." Had to wait 3 hours for CL to come to an area to try long. On a tight range day, either do not trade or be very picky with set ups. Still not sure what caused 140 ticks rip up in CL during Asian session.

Intraday i sold this back down into yesterdays range,

We saw crude open with a small gap up today from yesterdays pit session into the 5 EMA.

One Time Framing down filter has been taken out suggesting more 2 way trade.

but again intra day i sold this back into yesterdays range back down to yesterdays fairest price.

this is what made the most sense intra day from a Auction Market Theory view






Now im waiting for more info

Hi Greenr,

Everytime i visited London it rained but when sun came out it was always beautiful. Lot of bands got formed in London. Here is one from the master. Put the trade on, get numb and let the natural course follow is my motto.

Yes your right London can be so beautiful!

I love this city but the weather does suck, its a real shame as i would like to live here the rest of my life but the weather is really driving me towards the USA.

Im still pretty young but the end plan will be to live in USA though the UK winter and come back here for our so called summers lol.

Give me a head up if you every in London

" now trying long off 97.20 for rotational move in a tight range , so small size for lunch money."

While being numb as to what CL is doing , it just rang the bell asking what to do? Nothing to do for me except to book it.

Out flat 97.59.

No love from NG today. After a loss or gain - everything makes sense. Just define the risk and let the chip falls. Forgot to pay attention to rotatinal nature of every instruement and was looking some more selling pressure. There was none and slowly up 2% on the day. They all trade the same way most of the time.

RULE= Never short a dull market. But most of the time markets are dull and that's why this is a tough RULE to follow.
t Now looking at all the things i should have looked at before taking a trade- i am like how can i do this? Well that's how discretionary traders build their tool box and get ready for next time.

We have people all over the net who share and then we have people who troll different sites while keeping their identity hidden. I never understood , as an example, why anyone will follow my posts while keeping their identity hidden but i do not understand lot of things any way so i don't worry about it.
