Its a great little tool and doesn't take up too much resources. I think you will love it. Careful of the link you click once on the download site. There's lots of irrelevant add links on the page. Make sure the link you click says clocx

ClocX - Free analog clock for Windows desktop

Traded the CL again today. 2 small runs, yet very profitable. No gifts, for 5 nuggets.

Horst, that was really nice. Thank you for sharing.

I would be considering moving to the next contract (May) as the volume is about 3 times higher just today. Usually around the 20th of the month everyone moves over. I am only telling you as I know you haven't been trading CL tooooo Long.

Hahahaha thanks Gil. I was wondering why people were walking faster than I was driving today. Getting filled had me a little suspicious that something was up. I will remember for next time.

I got feeling really frisky today as multiple products had entries at the same time. Shorted the DAX in what I thought was a short and sweet run. Entered the CL for a short and more or less forgot about it as it came down for a nice profit. Still short in the DAX I also shorted the 6E as it was screaming "SHORT ME". It was also pushed to the back burner as the DAX continued to challenge me, and demanded my full attention. End result was CL 1 trade no gifts, 6E 1 trade no gifts, and the DAX challenged me with 2 BE and 2 gifts. Total nuggets for the day was 5.1......and a grand ol time was had by all......

Juggling Made Easy

They were right about you being prepared to monitor and trade multiple products at the same time. You multiple products with ease. Anticipating the videos with 10+ nuggets. I can hardly wait for those.

hahahaha....you're killing me Ros.......yeah back when I had my training wheels on and I saw the coach trading multiple products, my first reaction was "I just want to trade 1 successfully, let alone 2 or 3. But it's kinda like after you stop wiping out and skinning your knees, the next step is taking your hands off the handle bars and......."Look Ma, No Hands" ..........and you go to that next level

Trade Direction

Horst, first I want to tell you how I love your videos and your trade method. Everything from your entries to your money management and calmness. I just have two questions to ask, if I may. Before I ask, if you do not want to share this with me and the other members or if it is proprietary, I understand. But I still find your trading method very interesting.

1. When you first get ready for trading in the morning, what do you look for to determine the direction of your trades. It seems that you get every direction right and this would be a big help.

2. When you find your set up what is your trigger to enter the trade. I know a couple of "gifts" are made sometimes but it always seems to work out for you in the end. This would be a big help.

Once again thanks for the videos and I understand if you do not want to share this with me or the room members.

Thanks,
Hector

Horst, thanks for the continued inspiration! On CL for this video today, it looks like you entered short at 102.85, and were short as of 7:18 central time, and your stop was at 102.90, your usual 5 ticks. On my chart, I see at least 3 ticks up to 102.91 at 7:19:25, 7:19:47, and 7:20:04 on my 13 tick chart. Did you not get filled here? Just looking at my charts to compare your nice entries on my end and ran across that, just wanted to inquire.

Dude, keep up the good work, you're killing it!! :-)
