S/R zones for 2014.10.28

Bias: neutral

The price now is in the „sticky zone” again. As I wrote before, that I’d like to see the price come out of the 80-83.1 area, because the acceptance zones in this area are growing into each other – see today’s chart: from 80.5 to 82.5 it’s practically one wide zone.
If the price doesn’t move out, it’s sideways again.
I’m bearish below the ONL.

The zones for today:

94.42-94.6
93.48-93.65
93.21-93.3
92.66-92.86
91.9-92.11
91.15-91.41
90.6-90.8
89.93-90.21
89.4-89.77
88.86-89.13
87.66-87.82
87.15-87.43
86.5-86.71
85.65-85.9
84.3-85.15
83.57-83.7
82.9-83.06
81.5-82.50
80.9-81.25
80.45-80.76
79.54-79.84

I’m bearish below the ONL.

The price didn’t come out of the „sticky zone”, one could see a beautiful sideways move, in a simmetric triangle. In the last 20 minutes the bulls tried to break out, but only managed to close just above open.

How the predefined zones played out today:

Well, the bulls couldn’t make it, so basically the price is back to the „sticky zone”. The bears slightly won.

S/R zones for 2014.10.30

Bias: slighlty bearish

Overnight the bears worked very hard to pull back the price.
A very interesting thing: the ONL is exactly the same as yesterday’s: 81.21. So probably if the bears can work through it, and break below 81, maybe the crude finally finds its way..
Still a long-term bear.

The zones for today:

94.42-94.6
93.48-93.65
93.21-93.3
92.66-92.86
91.9-92.11
91.15-91.41
90.6-90.8
89.93-90.21
89.4-89.77
88.86-89.13
87.66-87.82
87.15-87.43
86.5-86.71
85.65-85.9
84.3-85.15
83.57-83.7
82.9-83.06
82.42-82.7
81.8-82.25
81-81.55
80.44-80.75
79.54-79.84

The bears tried, but not hard enough. The price broke below 81, but always came back to the 81-81.55 zone. Sideways move ruled the whole day, but at least the close was below the ONL.
Maybe tomorrow the bears will finally rise..

Did you trade it. I have marked my observetion based on your levels. 3 sweatspot entry only based on your levels.
The 1st one is easy to take. Rejection at if I am right at the market open
The 2nd one has been comfirmed with divergency
And a 3rd one is clear also.

Only using your levels, and the oscilator down. I see you are trying to justify some trend levels with SMA or EMA but really the trend should be much stronger to these kind of move I guess. I am not an expert on Min chart, so please keep that on mind. But as I said before, and I do believe it right now, if you are a good profile trader, and marking the levels like this, than you should skip the scalp and look for bigger moves.

Nope, I didn't trade last week, I was pretty sick. Still not feeling good, but tomorrow I'll start again.
I don't have the nerve to trade on a 5 min chart, I tried before. I moved my stops too soon, or didn't move it when I should have, couldn't let the winners run, and so on. Made all the mistakes a trader could.
Now I prefer trades which I enter and exit within a couple of minutes, but I just reviewed last month's trading, and preparing for this one, with looser rules, I let myself enter on bigger timeframe as well.
We'll see.
