##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

Note: ##TheStrategyLab chat room is now located on the Freenode IRC network after moving from the Othernet IRC network.

[10:00:52] <wrbtrader> WRB pt1 reached
[10:53:51] <wave__> gm all
[10:54:38] <wave__> S eur 2980
[11:02:59] <wave__> out -9 eur
[11:03:25] <wave__> dang it ..:(
[11:04:18] <wave__> hmmm anyone heree?
[11:04:55] <wrbtrader> You can't see anyone here or you're using something else that's not IRC to log in ???
[11:05:55] <wave__> i had used this link before ..may be no one is commenting
[11:06:29] <wrbtrader> wave...can you SEE anyone in here...yes or no ???
[11:06:38] <wave__> yes i can see
[11:06:43] <wrbtrader> thanks
[11:07:33] <wrbtrader> I ask because there are IRC software out there that allows someone to log into a chat room but you will not be able to see others also log into the same chat room.
[11:07:50] <wrbtrader> That's why I was asking you if you can SEE after you asked if anyone was in here.
[11:08:10] <wave__> k thks
[11:10:21] <wrbtrader> Also, if you remember, I was using a script in the old chat room on the Othernet that PREVENTED members from seeing the message posts of other members if that member was "inactive" (just lurking and not saying anything)
[11:10:37] <wrbtrader> I'm trying to get that script to work on the Freenode server...
[11:10:51] <wave__> k
[11:10:56] <wrbtrader> They are working on my script to get it to work in here.
[11:11:27] <wrbtrader> Thus, anyone that logs in here and doesn't say anything within whatever time limit I designate (e.g. 30 minutes)...
[11:12:06] <wave__> k makes sense .. at least interact
[11:12:12] <wrbtrader> Will not be able to see any messages from others until that person post a message that's more than a specific number of characters (e.g. 3 letters)
[11:12:36] <wrbtrader> I used it a lot in the old #FuturesTrades chat room.
[11:13:08] <wrbtrader> back when there was +30 members logging in but not saying a single word :)
[11:13:46] <wave__> lol geez folks log in and then just go to sleep
[11:14:36] <wave__> going for early lunch and then back in 2 hrs
[11:14:52] <canaandog> hmm
[11:19:00] <canaandog> did you find in past that the signal/noise ratio was raised or lowered with that script?
[11:20:21] <wrbtrader> didn't change
[11:20:45] <wrbtrader> Reason - Folks didn't know I was using it.
[11:21:28] <wrbtrader> Yet, once in awhile someone would compare the posted archive chat logs with their own log when they were in here...
[11:21:59] <wrbtrader> They would send me an email asking why they were'nt able to see a lot of the discussions that was posted in the archives
[11:22:23] <wrbtrader> That's when I would explain the use of the script
[11:23:32] <wrbtrader> Most of my scripts from the Othernet server don't work here on the Freenode server.
[11:23:48] <wrbtrader> Freenode OPs are working to get those scripts working in here.
[11:24:09] <wave__> back later
[11:24:11] <wrbtrader> They're only doing it so that they can use them too :)
[11:24:57] <canaandog> interesting. I can see how an active, high s/n group is better, but on other hand not sure lurkers do any damage
[11:25:34] <wrbtrader> Lurkers are the biggest problems on IRC...
[11:26:43] <wrbtrader> Statistically they are IP spam collectors, message spammers, multiple aliases, flooders, and so on.
[11:27:21] <wrbtrader> Only in public rooms.
[11:27:27] <wrbtrader> This is a public room
[11:27:41] <canaandog> ah. hadn't thought of it from that perspective
[11:28:02] <wrbtrader> Yet, if the room is private...an OP can be more specific about whom to allow into the chat room.
[11:28:21] <wrbtrader> I've had this room public and private since 2001
[11:28:54] <wrbtrader> 98% of the time when there were problems in here...its when the room is public and after most are lurking
[11:29:37] <wrbtrader> For example, recently, I had to BAN someone from here because he was using this chat room to LAUNCH spam in other chat rooms.
[11:29:59] <canaandog> do your scripts have whitelists, for "known good" people who may not post much but are not in the "statistically bad" category?
[11:30:02] <wrbtrader> Simply, he was a lurker in here but not so friendly elsewhere.
[11:30:09] <canaandog> that's a pain
[11:30:22] <wrbtrader> No.
[11:30:25] <canaandog> gotta wonder what's the matter with people sometimes
[11:30:40] <wrbtrader> Best way to use a whitelist is to password protect the room.
[11:30:50] <canaandog> suggested feature :)
[11:30:59] <wrbtrader> Those interested in getting back into the room will eventually contact me.
[11:31:10] <wrbtrader> Those not interested...won't contact me.
[11:33:24] <wrbtrader> For now, I have to keep the room public for a little while longer...
[11:34:12] <wrbtrader> Then I'll go back to the private chat room...more work to maintain.
[11:35:00] <wrbtrader> Most of my "price analysis" (not trades) are posted on twitter or stocktwits via "private messaging".
[11:35:22] <wrbtrader> Once in awhile I'll post a public tweet but not too often.
[11:36:43] <wrbtrader> Only reason why I don't post trades on twitter or stocktwits is because there's not a way to keep an auto log of such along with my conversations with others that's easy to copy as line text like you see here on IRC
[11:37:34] <wrbtrader> As soon as that is fixed...I'll close this chat room permanantely
[11:41:10] <canaandog> k
[13:19:06] <wave__> back
[13:21:02] <wave__> eur L isde seems to be the way now ..
[13:28:13] <wave__> S 50.50 es
[13:31:44] <wave__> out b/e ...geez
[13:37:16] <wave__> got spooked on that up move

[14:30:40] <wrbtrader> 4 contracts
[14:31:02] <wrbtrader> Oil CL futures trying hard to climb the most recent "long upper shadow"
[14:36:21] <wrbtrader> Exited all Light Crude Oil CL Long @ 93.70 --> + 0.04
[14:52:02] <wave__> just difficult to keep my head in ..trading geez Fri and ready to call in ...
[14:52:28] <wrbtrader> Not a pretty looking price action in the Emini futures today
[14:53:02] <wrbtrader> The move basically started BEFORE the regular session open of 0930am est...
[14:53:45] <wrbtrader> After that, its basically chasing and trying hard to hold a position in those little pullbacks that's been mainly just "contracting volatility".
[14:54:00] <wave__> yes
[14:54:47] <wrbtrader> Emini NQ had the best looking price action amongst the Eminis
[14:55:02] <wave__> NQ does move bit dont trade ...:(
[14:55:17] <wave__> it acts like TF at times ..takes out stops ...;(
[14:55:25] <wrbtrader> In contrast, Emini TF futures had the worst amongst the Eminis today
[14:56:05] <wave__> plus Fri end of week tarders in the pit call it quick ..
[14:56:12] <wave__> quit
[15:17:11] <wave__> let us see what closing will bring ...rush outthe door?

##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.

Commonly discussed trading instruments from stocks, futures, exchange traded funds and forex currencies:

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
