#TheStrategyLab is not a signal calling chat room, we do not offer a signal calling service and we do not have the resources to manage #TheStrategyLab as a signal calling chat room. Most members (including myself) post trades in real-time within about 5 - 10 seconds after the trades have been made...after getting confirmation in the broker platform and after the initial stop/loss protection is properly set.

Therefore, its impossible for you to follow (mimic/copy) my trades or the trades of any other member for the following reasons...

1) These are real trades or simulator trades (depending upon the trader posting the trades) and not signal calls. Thus, the trades you see posted in the chat room are only posted after (within 5 - 10 seconds) the confirmation received in the broker platform. In contrast, signal calls occur before the fact regardless if the trades actually occurred...usually hypothetical trades. Therefore, a signal caller tells you when to trade whereas in #TheStrategyLab the members tell you what they have already done (within 5 - 10 seconds) after such has occurred.

2) Our chat room requires participation to maintain its usefulness. Thus, everybody is posting price action analysis involving WRB Analysis, market news, trades or questions related to being a trader. Thus, you will never see someone's trades fast enough from amongst the other commentaries by others because of our required participation rule.

3) To legally operate a signal calling chat room to prevent getting into trouble with regulatory agencies...the signal caller and chat room must operate within the guidelines of those regulatory agencies. That's another reason why our chat room is free and mimicking (copying) someone's trades is not allowed in #TheStrategyLab...we avoid all the legalities (headaches) associated with signal calling chat rooms.

Do not attempt to mimic the trades of any trader in #TheStrategyLab chat room. If we suspect you've joined #TheStrategyLab to try to use it as a signal calling chat room in an effort to piggy back (mimic or copy) someone's trades, you will be banned...no exceptions and no warnings.

#TheStrategyLab is free and 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 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. Simply, if you're attempting to not use #TheStrategyLab as a journal of your real-time market commentaries and/or real-time trade posts...you're using #TheStrategyLab for the wrong reasons and the chat room is not suitable for you.

In addition, we welcome all traders with their own methods price action or indicators via different trading styles that's merged with concepts from WRB Analysis to help keep the chat room diversified...posting trades, price action analysis or market commentaries. Yet, if you're looking for education specifically involving trade methods of TheStrategyLab that we call WRB Analysis...you must first download and learn our free study guide at a different forum @ TSL Support Forum * http://www.thestrategylab.com/tsl/forum/viewforum.php?f=5 prior to asking any questions about the trades, price action analysis or market commentaries posted by wrbtrader (owner of TheStrategyLab) in #TheStrategyLab. WRB Analysis Tutorials will help you to understand some of the key price areas (WRB Zones) that I'm looking for trade opportunities within along with learning how to use volatility analysis to help with position size management and trade management after entry.

With that said, thanks for reading the archived chat logs and we highly recommend you make reading of the logs a part of your trading routine because you will sometimes find useful trade information not discussed anywhere else online nor in any books.

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 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.
