(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, WRB profit targets, Key Market Events) 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 trading
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)
##TheStrategyLab is primarily designed to only be a trade journal for documentation purposes
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 so that the chat room becomes your diary (journal)
to correlate with trades on your broker statements.
Also, if you want ##TheStrategyLab chat room to be educational
for you, ask questions
instead of lurking (not participating in conversations). You can talk about anything related to price action analysis, trade execution, financial markets, economies or news impacting the markets in general.
The chat room is only for traders learning or applying concepts of WRB Analysis. In addition, traders that use ##TheStrategyLab are required to post at least one WRB Analysis price action commentary, one real-time trade or one general trading related commentary per day they log-in to the chat room. Yet, if the trader decides to post real-time trades (simulator or real-money)...the trades must be clear (not ambiguous) entry price/exit price and position size. Traders that consistently log-in and not post any price action commentary involving WRB Analysis or 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 price action 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

[13:23:09] <@wrbtrader> Reminder: I didn't see much hype going into this FOMC announcement.
[13:23:29] <@wrbtrader> Thus, I'm expecting very little volatility.
[13:23:46] <@wrbtrader> Hopefully I'm wrong and if I'm wrong...I'll be ready.

[14:12:32] <@wrbtrader> Cover remainder Light Crude Oil CL futures @ 104.33 +0.30

[14:21:41] <@wrbtrader> Light Crude Oil CL futures back to where it started prior to the FOMC announcement
[14:22:05] <@wrbtrader> Very little volatility via this FOMC announcement as I expected.
[14:22:19] <canaandog> russels too, approx
[14:22:25] <@wrbtrader> Yet, would have been great to see continue volatility increases
[14:22:32] <@wrbtrader> didn't happen
[14:26:16] <@wrbtrader> volatility increasing
[14:30:33] <@wrbtrader> Long Light Crude Oil CL @ 105.30 -> medium size
[14:31:26] <@wrbtrader> Long Emini TF futures @ 1048.00 medium size (4 contracts)
[14:34:51] <@wrbtrader> correction...
[14:35:13] <@wrbtrader> Crude Oil CL entry @ 105.03 (not 105.30)
[14:35:26] <@wrbtrader> we aren't at that price level yet for 105.30
[14:39:51] <@wrbtrader> Exited all Light Crude Oil CL Long @ 105.60 --> + 0.3
[14:40:20] <@wrbtrader> that's +0.03
[14:40:25] <canaandog> good trick
[14:40:44] <@wrbtrader> wish it was +0.30
[14:42:20] <@wrbtrader> Emini TF futures WRB pt1 reached
[14:42:36] <@wrbtrader> target is a WRB pt2 or WRB Hidden GAP pt2
[14:54:30] <@wrbtrader> WRB pt2 reached after the volatility spike
[14:54:48] <@wrbtrader> holding still to see if the volatility continues to increase
[14:59:58] <@wrbtrader> Exit all Emini TF futures @ 1052.00 +4.00 (trail stop pick pocketed)
[15:08:20] <@wrbtrader> I think that's all I'm going to get out of this "low volatility" FOMC announcement.
[15:08:36] <@wrbtrader> Take care all and see all next month (tomorrow)
