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

Trade update - 20 ema approaching 200. Good thing for me is the slope of 20 n 50 is down.

Will recheck before nymex now, break time

Lol, just logged in. What a sight, deep red.

Hmmm - either I jump out now or prepare to take a deeper cut. 20 ema yet has not been tested on the other hand.

I will chance the 20 ema I guess. Would I buy now as per my chart - no. So I will hold untill the answer is yes which is the breach of 20 ema.

On the brighter side it took 9 hourly candles and pb have not yet even tested the 20 ema.

Tough call but I need to make a tough decision quick.

If I am wrong again I will bleed real heavy today. Lol, crude seems to have delivered me a uppercut today. A knockout perhaps ?. Moment of Truth. Let me see.
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.

Lost the first trade big
Made up for some lost digniity in the second, lol

Red day but happy to take this loss as I could have been kicked real bad the way I gambled the first trade.

1 hr tf not for me, 3 min is my strength. Next 2 days I will trade aggressive on 3 min, let me see how the week ends.

My red days are growing bigger every week. Must correct that asap.

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. Might just do that to shake myself up.

Anyway, this is how it ends today finally.

on thursday i did not allow myself to trade. on friday i just allowed myself just one trade and made some 4200 approx.


ended week with some 4 k or so.

this is how the week finally ended


so i have been consistent with 1 day loss per week which has been growing bigger :eek:. lost 3 days in the last 15 trading days. the second and third is of concern as the loss is growing in amount. working on that end. capital at start of week 4 is 51,200. profit avg 5000 per week which was alright to just begin with.

this week on i just pushed up the stakes a bit higher. now my base camp lies at 1.0 L and i have 20 days to reach there. will reveal details of next base camp once i arrive there. hope to make it there within 20 trading days / 4 weeks and the average need is 17 points daily per lot.

i can only try and put in my effort, will i reach there in time??, depends on a lot of factors. until i do not make it i will believe i can and will. let me see :rolleyes:

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 week and a good day.
