##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 either one WRB Analysis price action commentary involving any key concept from the free study guide, 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

[09:47:27] <wrbtrader> The issue is seeing them form live.

[09:56:07] <wrbtrader> VIX moving higher (not ranging) while Emini futures and other key markets are ranging on low volatility
[09:57:28] <wrbtrader> Hopefully the KME @ 1000am est will force the Eminis to make a move considering VIX current price action is providing support for such
[10:01:53] <wrbtrader> Short Emini TF futures @ 1127.20 small size 1 + 1 contracts
[10:02:53] <wrbtrader> Hmmm...my analysis is wrong. I need to dump this
[10:03:05] <wrbtrader> Cover all Emini TF futures @ 1127.50 -0.30
[10:03:17] <wrbtrader> Houdini Escape even though price action not doing anything
[10:03:29] <wrbtrader> Higher lows after price action tested the S area of the Up WRB Hidden GAP from 0949am - 0950am est
[10:03:35] <wrbtrader> volatility increasing due to the KME but price has stalled so far around 1127.50
[10:06:38] <wrbtrader> Long Emini TF futures @ 1129.20 large size 4 + 1 + 3 + 2 contracts
[10:07:28] <wrbtrader> volatility still increasing but LESS choppy now
[10:09:21] <wrbtrader> price action trying hard to retrace back to breakeven for this trade
[10:09:51] <wrbtrader> still holding total of 10 contracts
[10:15:59] <wrbtrader> WRB Analysis -> - Chat room for day traders, swing traders, position traders using concepts from WRB Analysis such as contracting volatility, key market event (KME), reaction high/low, WRB, WRB Hidden GAP, WRB Zone, WRB pt levels to help improve understanding of the price action their trading and/or improve the performance of their trade signal strategies while price action trading. WRB Analysis free study guide @ http://www.thestrategylab.com/tsl/forum ... =119&t=718 or http://www.twileshare.com/user/wrbtrader
[10:29:51] <wrbtrader> price currently @ 1132.20
[10:39:39] <wrbtrader> I'm still Long and price action still around 1132.20
[10:40:37] <wrbtrader> WRB pt1 had been reached via the WRB Hidden GAP of 1025am est
[10:52:19] <wrbtrader> The goal of this Long position is a WRB Hidden GAP pt2
[10:53:34] <wrbtrader> It has already reached via the Up WRB Hidden GAP pt1 @ 1026am est (1132.60) but has been struggling since to get back above that R area of the Up WRB Hidden GAP
[11:24:10] <wrbtrader> WRB Hidden GAP pt2 reached @ 1122am est (1136.50)
[11:25:20] <wrbtrader> Exit 5 contracts @ 1136.50 +7.30 and still holding 5 contract remainders
[11:26:57] <wrbtrader> held the remainders for a higher price action after I saw the volatility show up again.
[11:27:36] <wrbtrader> Unfortunately its now declining and trying to retest the S area (1135.40) of that WRB Hidden GAP
[11:33:11] <wrbtrader> Exit 4 contracts Emini TF futures @ 1137.60 +8.40
[11:33:23] <wrbtrader> WRB Hidden GAP pt3 reached
[11:33:43] <wrbtrader> Holding 1 contract remainder with volatility still trying to push prices higher
[11:50:45] <wrbtrader> Exit remainder contract Emini TF futures @ 1139.90 +9.70
[11:51:43] <wrbtrader> I exited that last contract into a volatility breakout of the prior three intervals...essentially its a WRB
[11:52:23] <wrbtrader> I'm done for the trading day eventhough Emini TF futures is still going higher after my exit.

##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:

Image CME Emini Futures EMD, ES and NQ

Image ICE Emini TF Futures (formerly CME ER2)

Image CBOT mini-sized Dow Futures YM

Image Eurex Index Derivatives (futures) DAX and DJ Euro Stoxx50

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
