##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, WRBs, WRB Hidden GAPs, WRB Zone, WRB/WRB Hidden GAP profit targets, Key Market Events, Reaction Highs/Lows, Expanding Volatility, WRB Zone, R area of WRB Zone, S area of 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 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 chat room is is primarily designed for you to use as a trade journal of your WRB Analysis or real-time trades with time stamp archive....giving you a better understanding of your broker statements from one trade to the next trade when you review your 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 to correlate with your broker statements. Therefore, the usefulness of ##TheStrategyLab chat room is determined via your participation in the chat room.

Also, ##TheStrategyLab chat room is not designed to be educational. Simply, members using the chat room are not there to teach you how to trade and you will not see me discussing the reasons (strategies) behind my trades within ##TheStrategyLab chat room because those reasons (strategies) are only discussed with fee-base clients in a different chat room. Yet, if you want ##TheStrategyLab chat room to be educational or more active in discussing whatever it is that you're trading, we highly recommend that you ask trading related questions about your own trading instead of lurking (not saying anything) because your primary purpose is to improve your trading if you're a struggling trader. Therefore, don't join ##TheStrategyLab and then be silent. To be silent while using ##TheStrategyLab chat room, you'll be wasting a collaboration opportunity for improving your trading and doing such will make ##TheStrategyLab chat room useless to you.

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 to the chat room participation rule involves those traders that are actively posting elsewhere at TheStrategyLab.com (e.g. DOKs at their support forum in the public area or within their private threads)...these traders are then allowed to not participate in the chat room if that's what they prefer to do instead of asking for help with real-time WRB Analysis.

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 qualify for access to our free ##TheStrategyLab chat room that's located on the Freenode IRC network...please follow the instructions at the TSL Support Forum @ http://www.thestrategylab.com/tsl/forum/viewforum.php?f=164

[10:46:23] <tradermo> against puts
[10:46:30] <@wrbtrader> Emini TF ranging, VIX ranging, ES now ranging
[10:46:55] <@wrbtrader> The expected barn burner day has not occurred so far :(

[11:36:42] <@wrbtrader> I had 3 consecutive "no fills" in Emini TF before the Emini ES trade
[11:37:06] <@wrbtrader> In contrast, yesterday they were stealing the stops and trail stops just to get contracts :(
[11:37:33] <tradermo> es getting awfully close to 1890
[11:40:39] <tradermo> stop to breakeven 108.25
[11:41:19] <tradermo> tf still weak, no squeezing yet
[11:41:54] <@wrbtrader> Exited all Emini ES Long @ 1889.50 --> + 1
[11:45:26] <t4n> RUA looks like its on another page
[11:47:51] <@wrbtrader> Long Emini ES @ 1890.50 -> large size
[11:48:22] <@wrbtrader> volatility increasing but TF and others keeping ES from surging into a volatility spike
[11:49:22] <@wrbtrader> last two Emini trades are a point apart on the entry :(
[11:49:30] <@wrbtrader> too much space there
[11:50:05] <tradermo> exit all iwm 108.50

[12:16:05] <@wrbtrader> re-entry
[12:16:47] <@wrbtrader> reason why I'm trading Emini ES today is because I didn't like what I saw in Emini TF out of the gate...
[12:17:15] <tradermo> indeed !
[12:17:27] <t4n> looks like it was chopping around
[12:17:33] <@wrbtrader> now Emini TF has its volatility back...I may switch back to it depending upon the results of my current Emini ES position
[12:19:33] <@wrbtrader> beware of the snapback
[12:19:43] <@wrbtrader> tightning my trail stop
[12:20:57] <@wrbtrader> Covered all Emini ES Short @ 1884.75 --> + 0.75
[12:21:49] <@wrbtrader> another shakeout

[12:31:09] <@wrbtrader> Covered all Emini TF Short @ 1085.10 --> - 1.9

[12:41:20] <@wrbtrader> re-entry
[12:42:29] <@wrbtrader> feels like a snail moving in comparison to the past 10 trading days
[12:42:59] <@wrbtrader> Simply, more patience is required today
[12:43:05] <@wrbtrader> so far I've not have much of that
[12:44:24] <@wrbtrader> Covered all Emini TF Short @ 1083.40 --> + 0.4

[13:25:38] <@wrbtrader> Covered Remainder Emini ES Short @ 1880.25 --> - 0.75
[13:25:49] <@wrbtrader> snapback
[13:26:25] <@wrbtrader> will look for a re-entry opportunity near the R area of the most recent Down WRB Hidden GAP interval if it can get there
[13:26:44] <@wrbtrader> If not, will have to wait for a retest of the S area of the same Down WRB Hidden GAP interval

[13:34:00] <@wrbtrader> TF is weak but not worth trading
[13:34:12] <@wrbtrader> ES is strong but really not doing much
[13:34:45] <@wrbtrader> I'm just not in the mood to spend my day constantly adjusting my trail stops to prevent losers and its resulting in just small profits
[13:35:03] <@wrbtrader> Take care all, have a nice weekend and see all on Monday

##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 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
