#TheStrategyLab (formerly known as #FuturesTrades) is free along with being a serious professional trading chat room involving WRB Analysis and any trader can use the chat room to post their real-time trades, real-time price action analysis or market commentaries involving stocks, futures, exchange traded funds or forex currencies. Further, although our chat room is smaller than the other popular chat rooms...we are the most active chat room in posting trades, price action analysis or market commentaries in comparison to other free chat rooms.

#TheStrategyLab is primarily designed to be only a trade journal for documentation purposes only so that members can have a real time stamp archive of trades and market commentaries of each trading day and this gives them a better understanding of their broker statements from one trade to the next trade when they review their performance numbers on any given trading day. In addition, we welcome all traders (beginners and experience) that are merging WRB Analysis with their trade methods or using WRB Analysis to develop a better understanding of the price action (market context) they're trading...improving their position size management and trade management after entry.

Also, if you want #TheStrategyLab chat room to be educational for you...please ask questions instead of lurking (not participating in conversations).

Quote:
Traders that use #TheStrategyLab are not required to post trades but if you do post trades...the trades must be clear (not ambiguous) entry price/exit price and position size. Traders that consistently post ambiguous trades will be KICKED (removed) from the chat room.

With that said, thanks for reading the trades, price action analysis or market commentaries that's below and we highly recommend you make reading of the logs a part of your trading routine because you will sometimes find useful market context information that's critical to understanding the price action you're trading. To log into #TheStrategyLab chat room...please follow the instructions here at the FTCHAT Support Forum @ http://www.thestrategylab.com/ftchat/forum/viewforum.php?f=5 or for registered members of the chat room at the TSL Support Forum @ http://www.thestrategylab.com/tsl/forum/viewforum.php?f=164

Note: Registration is not allowed here at the FTCHAT Forum...it is allowed at the TSL Forum (link above) that provides support for the #TheStrategyLab chat room.

[09:43:03] <@wrbtrader> not an early exit
[09:43:47] <@wrbtrader> exit based upon had I got the entry at the trade signal of 795.00 without the 8 tick chase
[09:44:51] <@wrbtrader> A little distracted because I'm "still waiting" for my Eurex DAX chart to open...been having problems with the Eurex and Euronext data

[10:09:31] <@wrbtrader> too many long upper shadows to endure staying in the trade
[10:10:03] <@wrbtrader> Had it moved a few more ticks more in my favor soon after entry with those long upper shadow...
[10:10:16] <@wrbtrader> I would have stayed in the trade longer for a possible WRB pt1
[10:11:41] <@wrbtrader> Creeper Up Movement still active
[10:12:22] <@wrbtrader> Creepers provide good entries...difficult to hold for a WRB pt1
[10:16:07] <+Fleneer> Just doing my scalps. two trades lasted 2:16 and 2:14 min each less than 5 min exposure to the market for NQ +2.25 less comm. high risk price action. roll the bones and if you get a winner grabb the green. :o)
[10:29:00] <+Fleneer> jumpped on the dopwntrned and got burned with the bounce. gave back all the gains. :o(
[11:00:00] <@wrbtrader> Emini futures ES, NQ, EMD, TF and YM are stuck inside the range of YESTERDAY's price action...
[11:00:55] <@wrbtrader> Along with the fact they are stuck inside the range of the regular session GAP between Monday's close and Tuesday's Open.
[11:01:39] <@wrbtrader> That's churn (overtrading) territory that can easily sucker us into trading too much.
[11:03:03] <@wrbtrader> Chat Room Purpose -> - This chat room is not a signal calling chat room...it is a journal of price action. Also, if you want education, you must participate via asking questions about the price action on your monitors because many in here are following the price action of different trading instruments (e.g. CL, 6E, ES, TF, ZB, EurUsd, GbpUsd, DAX, CAC40 and others) to help with their understanding of today's "market context".

-------------------------

#TheStrategyLab is free and is a serious professional trading chat room involving WRB Analysis in which any trader can use the chat room to post their trades or commentaries about stocks, futures, exchange traded funds or forex currencies. Simply, you don't need to be a client of TheStrategyLab.com to use the chat room nor do you need to be a price action only trader (no indicators) because some members use indicators while others do not. Yet, the only requirement is that you want to learn WRB Analysis.

Therefore, we welcome all traders that want to learn about WRB Analysis regardless if they are beginners or experience

The purpose of #TheStrategyLab is that it's designed to be a trade journal for documentation purposes only so that members can have a time stamp archive of trades and market commentaries of each trading day so that they can better understand their broker statements from one trade to the next trade when they review their performance numbers on any given trading day.

Further, members are not obligated to educate nor help other members but members are encourage to ask questions about any trades or market commentaries that's posted by others because sometimes the answers contains useful trading tips.

In addition, our primary job in the free chat room is to moderate the room (keep the peace) because with so many members using different trade signal methods along with different opinions about the market...debates or arguments can easily flare up without moderating. In addition, our presence in the chat room is to ensure it's a spam free chat room during trading although these archived chat logs may contain advertisements for guest visitors.

Also, to prevent the usual mix-up about our different chat rooms, most of our fee-base clients do not use chat rooms just like most retail traders do not use chat rooms. Yet, the few clients that do use chat rooms, our fee-base clients are discussing market analysis or price action only trade signals via concepts from our strategies in the private chat rooms called #VolatilityTradingTSL or #SwingTradingTSL and they're not allowed to do such in #TheStrategyLab.

Reminder, our Terms of Use (TOU) Policy is a must read to prevent any misunderstandings along with revealing that #TheStrategyLab is a serious professional trading chat room and we expect members to act professional. Also, these logs may have been edited (rarely) to remove any messages that a member has complained to me via private message that they consider a particular commentary to be inappropriate, offending or too far in the off topic area that's a distraction when the commentary was posted.

Note: All logs regardless to their location at TheStrategyLab.com website are eastern standard time.
