Time frames

Hi Lolu,

Great trading as usual !! Good work.

I have recently been looking at both the 30 and 60 minute charts......it certainly looks promising.

Also, remember..........just because a bar is painted magenta does not make it a reversal bar.....it just makes it a bar with a big wick. A reversal bar will come at the END of a move on higher volume.

Jeff

Oil inventories

I know that I've mentioned this many times but........I don't trade on oil inventory day until AFTER the report has been released.

Jeff did you take the first trade this a.m. Inside bar ,,,it was 15 Minutes prior to PMI , did not know if that report was " news worthy " enough to skip the trade . Got + 8 + 1 on it .

Ooooo I did not know your "oil inventory day" trading preference until now. It's my inadvertent oversight. Luckily I got out of a real Long CL trade (my first CL experience) minutes before the report and it's a baby green one LOL!

Thanks for your kind reminder and it's now documented on my VI log.

Looks like I got my strat to finally start firing trades. I thought, because it's entering on a 1-range bar (for backtessting purposes) but the strat was being added to a minute chart that maybe it wasn't loading any range bar data so it wasn't firing. So at 4:30am I got the brilliant idea to add a 2nd chart that is just a 1-range bar chart and maybe then it would have the bars necessary in memory to fire off the trades and that seemed to do the trick.

I'm running with +10/+18 because, well, I guess I'm just greedier that Jeff!

+38 ticks so far!

Avoiding the news kept me from a loser too!
