60 Ticks Profit Trading Crude Oil Today!

Hello Traders,

Trading today was profitable to the tune of 60 ticks or $600 less commission of $6 net today in trading $594.00.  As I look over my notes for the morning trading day, I find today being the Monthly Employment Friday which was a little later this month in March than most other months generally speaking.

BELOW IS A TRANSCRIPT OF SOME OF MY TRADING NOTES ON TODAY’S TRADE:

Waiting for 9:00AM Eastern plus 5 minutes to see what the market looks like then … once again it is proven profitable to stand aside and give the 5 minutes before seeking an entry … the market has not decided to stop going down … we have a HVS SKY Long Bar on the chart … looking for a complete 012 to form to attempt a long entry … we are driving into the 200 bar MA and the PDL right now …

PATIENCE NOW IS KEY!!  Don’t get pulled into the market wait for the pullback and retest of the LOW to see if it is strong or not … these HIGHER LOWS hold now and we are GOLDEN!!

1P RUN … but we have an HVS SKY BLUE BAR … the LONG may be over may be not … moving to BE plus 5 ticks now … went to 2P … this can be your OUT target if you like … I will explain why I went to BE before the move a little later … target on TRADE is 5P … if the market wants to move off the MONTHLY EMPLOYMENT REPORT I WANT TO MAXIMIZE THE MOVE … but protecting at 1P now.

REMEMBER OUR GOAL on this TRADING STRATEGY is to CAPTURE a 2P Target Normally … I released it today because of the possibility of a strong run up … so I am HAPPY with getting out at 2P today!!

    You state “REMEMBER OUR GOAL on this TRADING STRATEGY is to CAPTURE a 2P Target Normally … I released it today because of the possibility of a strong run up … so I am HAPPY with getting out at 2P today!!”

    Is there somewhere that you actually teach this strategy? Sorry if I missed it.

    This is my current trading strategy. I have not released it. I am doing live testing on my account at the moment. I have offered up some trading advice on how I am working it with the YouTube videos I have posted. I could possibly answer any direct questions. Right now, I am not teaching it.
