##TheStrategyLab (located on the Freenode IRC network) is free along with being a serious professional trading chat room for traders using WRB Analysis (e.g. Contracting Volatility, WRB, WRB Hidden GAP, WRB Zone) by itself or merged with other trade methods to improve the performance of those other trade methods regardless if you're a position trader, swing trader or day trader. Therefore, you're welcome to use the chat room to ask questions about WRB Analysis, post real-time price action analysis involving WRB Analysis merged with your own trade methods, post real-time trades or talk about general market issues impacting today's price action involving stocks, futures, exchange traded funds or forex currencies. In addition, we welcome all traders (beginners, experience, part-time, full-time) that are merging WRB Analysis with their trade methods or using WRB Analysis to help develop a better understanding of the price action (market context) they're trading...improving their position size management and trade management after entry.

##TheStrategyLab is primarily designed to be a trade journal for documentation purposes only so that members can have a real time stamp archive of their trades and their market commentaries of each trading day...giving 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 the past. Therefore, if you use our chat room...its highly recommended you post messages that reflect what you see in the price action on your monitors. Your diary (journal).

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

Chat room only for traders using concepts of WRB Analysis. In addition, 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 that's located on the Freenode IRC network...please follow the instructions here at the FTCHAT Support Forum @ http://www.thestrategylab.com/ftchat/forum/viewforum.php?f=5 or via the the instructions from the TSL Support Forum @ http://www.thestrategylab.com/tsl/forum/viewforum.php?f=164

[10:06:57] <wrbtrader> Covered all Emini TF Short @ 910.50 --> - 0.9
[10:07:27] <wrbtrader> This is slowly developing into a range bound price action...other key markets already doing such
[10:07:34] <canaandog> very poor s/n ratio so far
[10:07:44] <wave1> y
[10:07:53] <wrbtrader> volatility suddently dropped off the map

[10:14:50] <wrbtrader> Other key markets still range bound while Emini TF is pushing higher
[10:15:26] <wave1> tf being stronger lately
[10:16:25] <wrbtrader> too bad Oil CL futures is stuck in a very low volatility tight trading range
[10:16:54] <wrbtrader> Long Emini TF @ 911.70 -> large size
[10:17:06] <wrbtrader> 2+2+2
[10:17:18] <wrbtrader> tried to get 911.60
[10:18:08] <wrbtrader> SPY range getting tighter and volatility continuing to drop
[10:19:19] <wave1> L es 17.25

[10:20:45] <wave1> out +1
[10:23:05] <canaandog> long EMD 1106.5; flat 1106.6 = +1t :(
[10:24:03] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini TF Long @ 911.70 --> 0
[10:25:09] <canaandog> should have taken a few ticks and been happy
[10:25:36] <wrbtrader> If the volatility continues tightning...
[10:25:47] <wrbtrader> It's going to be a trading day of ticks...not points
[10:25:54] <wave1> today is a day for small profits
[10:27:45] <canaandog> cl looks horrible
[10:28:16] <wrbtrader> Yeah...I think CL futures is still in bed with a hangover
[10:28:40] <canaandog> :)
[10:31:01] <wrbtrader> volatility now showing up in Oil CL futures
[10:31:33] <canaandog> fell out of bed
[10:41:37] <wave1> today need to be careful
[10:41:59] <wrbtrader> Need to be careful EVERY trading day :)
[10:42:14] <wave1> lol true too
[10:43:53] <canaandog> looks like CL is now going to hack around on that level
[10:48:12] <wrbtrader> volatility picking up in EuroFX 6E futures...
[10:48:25] <wrbtrader> Hopefully other key markets will too.
[10:50:57] <canaandog> short CL 92.56; flat 92.41 = +15t
[10:51:44] <wrbtrader> Shorts Light Crude Oil CL @ 92.27 -> large size
[10:52:02] <wrbtrader> 6+3
[10:55:17] <wrbtrader> :(
[10:55:42] <wrbtrader> volatility shows up...then disappears just as fast
[10:57:02] <wrbtrader> Oil CL futures long shadows showed up
[10:57:19] <wrbtrader> support trying to develop below the volatility spike
[11:03:53] <wave1> S es 16.25
[11:04:58] <wave1> out -1
[11:05:34] <wave1> geez make 1 lose 1

[11:08:53] <t4npaper> cl
[11:11:15] <wave1> TF snap back
[11:12:34] <wave1> S got a bit comfortable & boom
[11:18:37] <wrbtrader> Covered all Light Crude Oil CL Short @ 92.54 --> - 0.27
[11:19:23] <wrbtrader> not a good area to exit that short with the volatility contraction
[11:20:05] <wrbtrader> If it drops...got to sit and watch it retrace back down to 92.35 and then hope a trade opportunity appears soon afterwards
[11:21:53] <wrbtrader> Key markets overall volatility dropping again
[11:22:16] <wrbtrader> and price action has retraced back to their most recent tight trading range area
[11:26:09] <wrbtrader> Oil CL price action above the R area of that recent big down WRB Hidden GAP
[11:27:40] <wrbtrader> Long Emini TF @ 911.50 -> large size
[11:27:52] <wrbtrader> 6 contracts
[11:27:55] <wrbtrader> geeesh
[11:28:27] <wrbtrader> start showing volatility expansion...it just dies over as soon as I enter :(
[11:28:55] <wrbtrader> Oil CL futures also killed its slowly developing volatility
[11:29:40] <wrbtrader> I'm now expecting a BIG volatility spike
[11:29:45] <wrbtrader> hopefully not against me...
[11:29:53] <wrbtrader> price action suddently got jumpy
[11:29:59] <wrbtrader> tightening stop
[11:31:16] <wrbtrader> The only good thing about today's price action...
[11:31:23] <wrbtrader> I won't stay like this all day
[11:31:38] <wrbtrader> Eventually it'll do a strong directional continuation price action...
[11:31:52] <wrbtrader> Hopefully when it does...I'm not away from the computer on one of my breaks
[11:31:58] <wave1> it seems S is not the way to go
[11:32:28] <wave1> range for es 5 pt
[11:32:57] <wrbtrader> That's a very small range in comparison to the range the past few trading days
[11:33:03] <wave1> N ow may breaks u during trading?
[11:33:03] <wave1> many
[11:33:48] <wave1> u take
[11:34:55] <wrbtrader> 3 - 4 time outs I take (sleep, eat, toilet, store)

[12:09:59] <t4npaper> no vol
[12:11:18] <wrbtrader> volatility spike in Oil CL futures
[12:11:40] <wrbtrader> back near the price area of the R area
[12:11:54] <wrbtrader> still stuck inside the overall range of that big WRB Hidden GAP
[12:19:53] <wrbtrader> Covered all Light Crude Oil CL Short @ 92.58 --> - 0.15
[12:20:07] <wrbtrader> Its going to take out that R area again
[12:37:51] <wrbtrader> Long Light Crude Oil CL @ 92.62 -> large size
[12:38:06] <wrbtrader> 9 contracts
[12:38:33] <wrbtrader> around 1130am est I tried to get Long in Oil CL futures around this price area...
[12:38:37] <wrbtrader> no fills
[12:38:49] <wrbtrader> Lucky because they would have resulted in a loss
[12:39:40] <wrbtrader> better stop location for this trade via that prior R area arond 92.60
[12:40:17] <wrbtrader> a little too tight for me
[12:43:13] <wrbtrader> volatility decreasing again
[12:44:33] <wrbtrader> In crontrast, volatility increasing in Emini futures
[12:44:48] <wrbtrader> looks like I'm chasing the volatility of the wrong trading instrument
[12:46:48] <wrbtrader> Emini futures in Creeper Up Movement
[12:48:02] <canaandog> amost went long TF around 912, but just didn't trust it with today's action so far
[13:10:36] <canaandog> long TF 912.2; flat 912.5 = +3t
[13:12:52] <canaandog> stop biased towards small gain
[13:13:29] <wrbtrader> Exited all Light Crude Oil CL Long @ 92.66 --> + 0.04
[13:13:46] <wrbtrader> :(
[13:13:58] <wrbtrader> got pick pocketed while on break
[13:15:44] <wrbtrader> 92.83 was profit target of the trade via the R area of the WRB Hidden GAP @ 1025am - 1030am est
[13:16:39] <wrbtrader> By the way, that's my first profitable trade of the day.
[13:17:41] <wrbtrader> Long Light Crude Oil CL @ 92.67 -> large size
[13:17:51] <wrbtrader> 7 contracts
[13:17:54] <wrbtrader> re-entry
[13:18:00] <wrbtrader> looking to add 2 more
[13:18:40] <wrbtrader> chance to add missed
[13:19:34] <canaandog> emini spike
[13:20:36] <Donnin__> .
[13:20:52] <wrbtrader> Long Emini TF @ 913.60 -> large size
[13:21:08] <wrbtrader> 6+2+1
[13:21:22] <wrbtrader> In Oil CL futures and Emini TF futures at the same time...
[13:21:29] <wrbtrader> rare trade situation for me
[13:23:03] <wrbtrader> volatility slowly increasing...not getting what I want :(
[13:27:06] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini TF Long @ 914.80.00 -> + 1.20
[13:27:20] <wrbtrader> WRB pt1 reached
[13:28:53] <wrbtrader> increasing voaltility in Oil CL futures taking prices down
[13:30:02] <canaandog> seems to me that lately eminis have tended to move as gold nears close
[13:31:04] <wrbtrader> What time does the regular session of Gold closes ???
[13:31:18] <canaandog> just did
[13:31:20] <canaandog> 1330
[13:31:36] <wrbtrader> ok
[13:32:27] <wrbtrader> I'm making a note of that for research to see if there's an intraday tendency involved
[13:32:33] <canaandog> 132624 long GC 1578.8; flat 1578.9 = +1t; late entry, foolish trade, lucky escape
[13:33:17] <wrbtrader> increasing volatility in Oil CL futures
[13:33:30] <wrbtrader> trail stolen
[13:33:39] <wrbtrader> Exited all Light Crude Oil CL Long @ 92.54 --> - 0.13
[13:34:17] <wrbtrader> stop was @ 92.57 but I losen it up because I thought it was too tight
[13:35:07] <wrbtrader> Emini futures still in a Creepr Up Movement
[13:36:40] <canaandog> that possible tendency was one reason I took my last TF long. I should have held on.
[13:39:47] <wrbtrader> Shorts Emini TF @ 92.47 -> large size
[13:39:59] <wrbtrader> 6+1
[13:40:27] <wrbtrader> support failed
[13:40:46] <wrbtrader> Oil CL futures increasing volatility
[13:41:02] <wrbtrader> Yet, so far all day, those volatility spikes have not held much weight today :(
[13:41:32] <wrbtrader> they have quickly lost their steam and immediately went into volatility contraction
[13:42:45] <wrbtrader> starting to feel like a churn
[13:43:32] <wrbtrader> 92.34 is the churn...wasn't fast enough to catch it
[13:43:48] <wrbtrader> Looking for a 2nd try at it
[13:44:37] <wrbtrader> SPY retested the R area of its most recent WRB Hidden GAP on the 3min chart
[13:46:09] <wrbtrader> key markets showing support developing "together"
[13:46:16] <wrbtrader> trying hard to get insync
[13:48:15] <wrbtrader> WRB pt1 reached
[13:48:35] <wrbtrader> will hold...still trying to dig myself out of a red hole for the day
[13:48:55] <wrbtrader> trailing @ profit
[13:52:16] <wrbtrader> Covered all Emini TF Short @ 92.41 --> + 0.06
[13:55:13] <canaandog> meanwhile, 6J has been falling
[13:56:37] <wrbtrader> Oil CL at another support area
[14:11:12] <canaandog> long CL 92.47; flat 92.49 = +2t; wrb1 and quick retrace
[14:13:17] <wrbtrader> Long Emini TF @ 92.50 -> large size
[14:13:28] <wrbtrader> 7 contracts
[14:14:11] <wrbtrader> chop has had its way with me today :(
[14:14:48] <canaandog> it's like your karma is bad. did you kick your dog?
[14:14:59] <canaandog> :)
[14:15:49] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini TF Long @ 92.38 --> - 0.12
[14:15:54] <wrbtrader> :(
[14:16:17] <wrbtrader> I tried 3 times to get that 92.38 as a Long and coudln't get it
[14:16:39] <wrbtrader> after the bounce off the support area
[14:16:46] <wrbtrader> back there again
[14:17:16] <wrbtrader> Shorts Emini TF @ 92.27 -> large size
[14:17:37] <wrbtrader> 7 contracts
[14:17:46] <wrbtrader> 2 ticks below the support
[14:18:30] <wrbtrader> geeesh
[14:19:11] <wrbtrader> fills are tough
[14:19:23] <wrbtrader> tough on the entries and tough on th exits
[14:21:58] <t4npaper> you dont normaly trade during this time of day
[14:22:13] <t4npaper> could be a factor
[14:22:22] <wrbtrader> I pulled my order for 92.12 after two no fills...lets see if it can now work in my favor
[14:23:55] <canaandog> wrbtrader, do you use usually use limit or market orders to exit?
[14:25:44] <wrbtrader> Covered all Emini TF Short @ 92.06 --> + 0.21
[14:25:56] <wrbtrader> I usually market out when WRB targets are reached
[14:26:26] <canaandog> k. "no fills" made me wonder
[14:28:00] <wrbtrader> Depends on the trading instrument
[14:28:16] <wrbtrader> Most of my market orders are in Emini TF futures.
[14:28:39] <wrbtrader> If I start trading something new...I'll begin for awhile using other orders (not market orders)
[14:30:16] <wrbtrader> Shorts Light Crude Oil CL @ 92.03 -> large size
[14:30:34] <wrbtrader> 8+2
[14:30:43] <wrbtrader> re-entry
[14:34:10] <wrbtrader> Covered all Light Crude Oil CL Short @ 91.62 --> + 0.41
[14:34:31] <canaandog> nice. unusual post-close movement in CL
[14:34:54] <wrbtrader> where was that volatility earlier today :(
[14:37:03] <wrbtrader> Lucky trade because I almost took a 15 min timeout break from trading @ 1430pm est after that prior winner
[14:39:58] <wrbtrader> Not a pretty trading day...still negative in Emini TF futures
[14:40:17] <wrbtrader> Yet, today I'll be able to trade the 4pm rush hour traffic price action...
[14:40:37] <wrbtrader> Something I haven't been able to do for many days now due to personal reasons involving the kids
[14:46:47] <wrbtrader> volatility spike in EuroFX 6E futures
[14:53:06] <wrbtrader> Oil CL futures volatility is now dead in the water
[15:04:15] <canaandog> 145623 short TF 913.8; shallow wrb1; holding at be
[15:04:46] <wrbtrader> Emini TF range has been getting tighter the past 15 minutes
[15:04:51] <wrbtrader> Its due for a volatility spike
[15:05:09] <canaandog> attempting to exploit recent tendency to reverse trend around 1500
[15:05:24] <wrbtrader> Shorts Emini TF @ 912.70 -> medium size
[15:05:31] <wrbtrader> 4 contracts

[15:58:14] <canaandog> almost made the zone target I wanted last trade
[15:58:30] <canaandog> there it went
[15:59:14] <wrbtrader> WRB pt1 reached
[16:02:18] <wrbtrader> Covered all Emini TF Short @ 907.90 --> + 3.1
[16:02:25] <canaandog> vn
[16:03:33] <wrbtrader> The 4pm rush hour traffic trading session usually saves my butt whenever I'm in the red for the day.
[16:03:37] <wrbtrader> It did today again
[16:03:46] <canaandog> amazing performance
[16:05:05] <wrbtrader> Toughest trading day of the month and it happen on the last trading day of the month :(
[16:05:32] <wrbtrader> Usually get 1 - 2 very difficult trading days each month...
[16:05:50] <wrbtrader> I was due for one this month and thought I would escape February without one.
[16:06:49] <wrbtrader> Mostly losing trades today except for the big trade in Emini TF futures and that big trade in Light Crude Oil CL futures that got me out of the mud
[16:07:32] <canaandog> at eod, that's what matters
[16:08:07] <canaandog> I was "lucky" today w/100% winners, but comparatively I need not have bothered
[16:08:10] <wrbtrader> I picked the wrong day to "expand" my stops in Light Crude Oil CL futures
[16:08:35] <wrbtrader> First loss in Oil was -0.27 ticks per contract on a large size position.
[16:08:38] <wrbtrader> That was a killer
[16:08:40] <wrbtrader> :(
[16:09:03] <Zr1trader__> Do you have a daily loss limit WRBtrader?
[16:09:23] <Zr1trader__> a monetary point where you stop trading
[16:09:32] <wrbtrader> Yeah...basically 50% of my average monthly profit.
[16:10:38] <Zr1trader__> interesting thx
[16:11:47] <wrbtrader> Basically I would need to be down about 10k for me to call it quits and go take a long walk on the water front
[16:12:19] <wrbtrader> Haven't had to do that since my Emini ES futures trading days
[16:12:36] <wrbtrader> Had too many of those types of trading days.
[16:12:50] <wrbtrader> Take care all and see all "next month" (tomorrow)

##TheStrategyLab (located on the Freenode IRC network) is free and is a serious professional trading chat room involving WRB Analysis in which any trader (position trading, swing trading, day trading) 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 ##WRB_Analysis 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: chat logs saved (timestamp) from Qu├ębec, Canada in eastern daylight time
