    Monkey King's Oily Tales (Day Trading Crude Oil)

    crude is strangely moody. it may follow news, fundamentals, technicals, rumors or anything else (eg -tweets) :eek: if you can easily guess which way crude may move on inventory - then be sure it will not, :rolleyes: inventory is just a trap as most info is already guessed correctly by the big...

    you are spot on :). I treat inventory as a speed-breaker. the trend resumes despite outcome of inventory after a while usually. if you know the trend before the inventory then one can go in direction of trend by entering on a spike that shoots up against the trend. if the spike shoots in the...

    I follow investing.com mainly for tracking Major events are API, epi, bh rig count etc. There are a few good traders there who put out news as it happens in the chat too. But, lol - do not follow the guys there, most of the good ones are trading big and positional. A lot of the rest are lost and...

    Note to self - better to scalp today as the inventory and flash news from the middle East will be used to eat stop losses. I guess post inventory a clear direction will emerge. Going down to 3 min or even 1 min if reqd for the day. May look at base metals if I spot a good entry. Crude will as...

    On the edge really, lol - target wise. Targeting 5000 pts for the 4 weeks / 20 days. Can afford no more than 5 days of losses and pointwise, a max of 1000 pts. That puts me in a very tight spot of a max of 250 pts. With the number of lots I trade that is a time bomb just waiting to explode...

    Took a long, forced myself. In loss of some 1700 net. Red day perhaps, lol Too large position size wrt capital and too tight a sl. Today whipsaws in market need a bigger sl which means smaller position size. Taking a break now. Will check later if things are clear. Took a 11 point 10 lot...

    Since crude is acting funny again I am kind of playing the circus today. Set up for today is 15 min heiken ashi with 20 ema for trading signals and 200 ema for long term trend. If today goes well I may do this untill a strong trend appears and only then go back to my 20/50/200 set up on normal...

    If it breaks 3915 or 3865 there is a chance of another trade. But I dont want to give back what I have in my pocket. Somehow I am biased and feel bearish so taking a long will not be me. So, the lone trade for the day it remains for now unless I see a break below these levels by 8 pm. If not...

    Trade exit @ 3872, all 20 mini. Done for the day.some 3000 net. Held on during pullback as did not find a clear breach of 50 ema (clear breach to me is strong candle above ema) Was a dangerous trade but I willing to lose a bit as my chart showed divergence and no reversal.lucky start to the...

    Final closure for the day. Good thing I am ending in the red. If I tried harder could maybe end up break even. But when wrong I must not spare the rod. Wonder how I could be so casual and let the trade run blind. Right now I feel I must payback for this folly by not trading anymore this week...

    Trade update - will square off a min or so before inventory. Will have to write off today as a horrible day in all likelyhood Update - sold 10 lots @ 4191 and now may just hold the rest and transfer them to positional maybe. Not sure but no pressure to square off now.
