Trading Gain of 56 Ticks Today in Crude Oil … First STAB Hit!

Hello Traders,

Today was a nice trade setup and nice overall win trading one contract in the Crude Oil Market today.  Once again, the trade showed a LONG entry at 10:09AM Eastern time.  I was long from 105.71 with a 2P target of 106.33 in today’s trading.  (See Attached Trading Chart).  I was out on the trade at 106.27 in today’s trading.


Some of my Trading Notes:

012 formed again … will it hold??  Still a double bottom by definition … only 4 ticks separate the lows.  Entry at 105.71 for now … today we do have Federal Budget Balance at 2PM Eastern as I look over the economic reports for the afternoon.  The longer it takes to find an entry the more power this report will hold.

LADR is at 105.04 currently … will we reach down there?  NO … I am long at 105.71 looking for 1P to be run before moving to BE.  My stop is at 105.47 currently.  Top target on trading is 3P … although I will be quick to take a 2P move if available.  Today 2P on this trade is at 106.34 … 3P is at 106.65 … 1P is at 106.02 … which is below the PDL … yes … we had enough room for profit on trade entry.


Today’s trade also marked the first STAB (Starting Trading Account Balance) wire out.  I will talk more on this on my next post.
