this move to 8320


mfbreakout View Post
Yesterday CL sold off from 82.64 area to 80.80 area with usual SONG and DANCE in between. Today, it went upto 83.29 area and after an hour down to 82.30 and counting- a good example of video game.

may i consider strong this move up at open?
i made a long 8218 , breaking 8273 imaging at 83ishes....daydreaming with 85 and i am seeing evaporating and and now waiting for a pullback

Trading

Traders coming up with pre conceived levels are STUNNED just as they were to the down side. Follow the Money. I tried short before NY open and got some points but once market is open- follow the money. GREEN= LONGS
RED= SHORTS, it's a pretty simple equation.

If 82.18 long was part of your plan then it's a good trade. I was short from 82.54 area from Globex session. Covered most 82.10 and after NY open once price got above 82.70 area, there were no longs for me. I waited for ORH formed and shorted 83.20 area.

I had no way of knowing if NY open will be strong, so i stayed with my short and got out at 82.71 and waited for moneky to bounce higher.

Why on my short around 82.48 i cut down position size yesterday? becuase of probability of Monkey jumping higher as it did this morning. Well, yesterday i cut down size, today i added back size from the short size. Still holding some shorts, will look for longs around 81.70 to 82 area.


CL came to 81.80 area . Long made sense. Out flat 82.50 area.

Once a trader gets used to Scalping and action- slow ride does not make sense to them.

NG

NG- not a good day. Should have paid attention to Gap down in NG .


NG rise from the ashes. Yesterday Zero, today Hero- such is a life of a day trader.

Trading


CL in 80-85 range till new catalyst shows up. CL is forming a base for next up move. When and how that will happen we never know.

" Investors are buying into funds that track oil prices at the fastest rate in two years, betting that crude will rebound from a bear market. The four biggest oil exchange-traded products listed in the U.S. received a combined $334 million this month through Oct. 20, the most since October 2012, according to data compiled by Bloomberg."
