this was a long position on CL,so far it was capable of generating +32 points .even if declines i've moved stop loss to entry point and worst scenario is break even.

You mean ticks, not points.

i use multiple factors such as an- self made- volume based indicator and price action as well as other combined methods .i have less than 50% win rate (usually 40%) but my winning positions are much larger than my loss .also i ignore lots of setup and only trade those who fit to "1% of equity risking" criteria.so on average i have 3-4 positions per day. i will post every trade -whether loss or win- here .

Thanks for correcting me @Big Mike , i meant ticks which each tick's value is 10$ in CL.to be honest after these years i still thought they have same meaning .i'm not a native speaker,so it's unavoidable sometimes
