##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, 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) they're trading.

##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. Exceptions for those that are actively posting via private messages or posting at one of our support forums.

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 via the the instructions from the TSL Support Forum @ http://www.thestrategylab.com/tsl/forum/viewforum.php?f=164

[12:15:43] <@wrbtrader> Crude Oil CL futures still the best price mover but I hate trading it now after 0930am est
[12:16:08] <@wrbtrader> Thus, I'm still taking a rest from trading Crude after 0930am est
[12:16:39] <@wrbtrader> If it can get back above $100...that will bring a lot more volatility back into it.
[12:16:55] <@wrbtrader> That's when I'll get interested in Crude Oil CL futures again.
[12:20:47] <Coin2> right, or a mess in Sochi
[12:22:40] <@wrbtrader> Sad to say but the markets should start increasing its volatility when the Sochi Winter Games start

[12:26:56] <Coin2> do you think that the afternoon will be tradeable ?
[12:34:43] <@wrbtrader> No good news today
[12:34:59] <@wrbtrader> Also lately...afternoon trading session hasn't done much
[12:35:56] <@wrbtrader> Markets are stronger when they are working together...hopefully that happens this afternoon
[12:36:25] <@wrbtrader> That togetherness will be tough to do without any decent key market events
[12:37:13] <@wrbtrader> Simply, we're going to need to see some breaking news this afternoon or someone important in the markets say something stupid or say something that spooks folks
[12:46:38] <@wrbtrader> Emini ES trying hard to push down while Emini TF trying hard to push higher

[14:56:22] <Coin2> kind of triangle so far
[14:56:31] <@wrbtrader> That's an extremely tight trading range going sideways
[14:56:43] <robbin_banks> is that unusual from your experience mr perry?
[14:57:02] <@wrbtrader> Not unusual
[14:57:04] <robbin_banks> retracement of spike i mean
[14:57:13] <robbin_banks> thanks
[14:57:17] <@wrbtrader> We get 2 - 3 of these types of days per month
[14:58:17] <@wrbtrader> Only thing nice about days like this is that the following day is usually (very common) an excellent trading day.
[14:58:37] <robbin_banks> yeahhh
[14:58:46] <@wrbtrader> That's why I always push the size (increase) the day after a day like today.
[14:59:23] <@wrbtrader> I do that for two days
[14:59:47] <robbin_banks> but i noticed you jump on these spikes quick as opposed to waiting on the retrace to enter...
[14:59:58] <@wrbtrader> Thus, Thursday and Friday I'll be very aggressive as usual on the following days
[15:00:21] <@wrbtrader> I stick with the plan...bite my teeth on the 2 - 3 days like today.

[15:31:39] <@wrbtrader> A ton of contraction today...usually produces a volatile 4pm rush hour traffic
[15:32:08] <@wrbtrader> Yet, past months since early last year...very little volatility has shown up to to the lack of instituional interest

[16:09:53] <@wrbtrader> but I just now got it in the overtime session and I didn't make any changes in the order
[16:09:55] <@wrbtrader> :(
[16:10:39] <@wrbtrader> I could have easily exited that trade at a loss due to frustration because of the earlier "no fill".
[16:11:32] <@wrbtrader> I'm still holding 1/2 of the Emini TF futures position
[16:12:45] <@wrbtrader> I doubt I'll hold them into the European opening regular session because they got some big key economic events beginning around 3am est
[16:13:28] <Coin2> ok
[16:14:21] <@wrbtrader> Those reports out of Europe are important enough to cause a "big movement" in the Eminis beginning around 2am est
[16:15:20] <@wrbtrader> 2am - 6am big area of concern and then follow by the U.S. 0830am est Unemployment Claims report
[16:15:59] <@wrbtrader> :(
[16:16:39] <@wrbtrader> Covered all Emini TF Short @ 1178.90 --> - 1.6
[16:16:56] <@wrbtrader> market decided for me as soon as I tighten the stop
[16:17:22] <@wrbtrader> nasty little snap back after it hit 1178.10
[16:17:34] <Coin2> yes, EBAY just got it's earning
[16:17:58] <Coin2> same time Russell pushed
[16:18:05] <Coin2> tomorrow is another day !
[16:18:16] <Coin2> see ya wrb, have a nice one
[16:19:40] <@wrbtrader> Will be aggressive tomorrow...got some big KMEs in comparison to almost none today except for BOC rate announcement out of Canada that was only important to Forex currencies paired with the Canadian dollar.
[16:19:48] <@wrbtrader> Take care all and see all tomorrow
Session Close: Wed Jan 22 16:53:04 2014


##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 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 traders in price action trading.

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 price action 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
