Trade #1 on 10.8.14

Just came to my charts and saw an opportunity to start the day off with a winner. Traded 2 contracts on CL for +5 ticks each. I could have gone for +10 but I just wanted to start the day on a positive note.

Trade #1 on 10.4.14

Missed 1st test which worked. Took 2nd test. Didn't like the way it was looking. Closed for +2 ticks on 2 contracts. It was a smart decision. I would have been stopped out at -6 ticks.

The trend has been so strong down that I only took this bounce off target area for +5 ticks again with 2 contracts.

Passed Up

Elected to pass over 2 entry signals because of being so close to Crude Oil Inventories report.

Trade #4 on 10.8.14

Just took another +5 with 2 contracts as price reached a key level on my longer term chart. Normally, I would have taken +10 ticks but the market is in such a strong downtrend and I was still close to the news. Price still determining which way it wants to go but it looks like we may have the beginning of a retracement move.
