short CL 102.81.


Out flat 102.43. Lunch hour chop zone , now. If 103.20 area gets taken out with FORCE- it can get busy for next leg up.


reshort CL 102.84. Clearly defined trading box. 103.20 to 102.40 area.

and no reason for longs- except scalps in TF etc.

Your Active Trader seems to be missing the Level II info; the live account should have 10 levels instead of just 1. Might need to email support to get it fixed.

CL moved too quickly off 102 for me to try long.

Per my RULES, i want consloidation before trying long. I have never won trying to trade like an algo.

i agree. I don't try to capture V bottoms. Its highly unproductive for me. I much prefer consolidation before going either direction.

Hi Rmeja,

I hate times and Sales so much that i have this feature turned off. Main reason being that i lost so much money trading stocks off it that i had to tun it off and start from

ground zero when i switched over to futures.

Thx

Shorts and shorts to ones hearts desire.

1) GC never pulled back to an area for me to try long. So no trade.

2) No trade in CL after last short.

3) TF kept me busy.
