##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

[09:49:53] <Lightenup> Looks like all chop to me and ES and TF trying to fill gap like ym
[09:50:43] <CaydenV> dont forget the NQ- Ha!
[09:52:25] <CaydenV> one concearn i have if your looking to fill the reg session gap is the pre market volitility spike that did fill the gap but during globex- IDK what im talking about either- just that it happened so
[09:53:20] <CaydenV> YM was in that globex group with es, nq ant tf
[09:54:54] <eminimike> TF 5 min bars very choppy.. long wicks, small bodies
[09:55:47] <CaydenV> market sweeping for stops in chops
[09:56:22] <CaydenV> anticipating the 10 east kme
[09:57:43] <eminimike> definitely..
[09:58:33] <CaydenV> in 1 minute kme
[10:01:31] <CaydenV> market likes- looking to fill reg session gap now on nq, es and tf
[10:01:53] <CaydenV> bingo on the nq
[10:02:05] <wrbtrader> Emini ES futures filled in its regular session gap
[10:02:31] <CaydenV> tf only one left to fill that very gap
[10:03:55] <CaydenV> I'm spent
[10:04:14] <CaydenV> where's the open zone of S and R below?
[10:05:28] <eminimike> looks like no HG's after KME
[10:06:46] <Lightenup> The 1 min TF 10 am up wrbhg resistance is being tested
[10:07:37] <CaydenV> yep- might have to go back a few days- starting to look now- but i've been working the ON ever since the 1:20 east wrbhg was hit last night.
[10:08:55] <CaydenV> check that- we have open wrbhg from yes
[10:09:11] <CaydenV> quick look at a 15 minute
[10:10:22] <TradeSnake______> Long YM @ 16000
[10:10:38] <TradeSnake______> sorry 17600
[10:11:18] <TradeSnake______> Flat YM @ 17610 --> +10
[10:11:28] <wrbtrader> Emini ES futures did a breakout of the S area of that KME first WRB HG (Up WRB HG)...
[10:11:47] <wrbtrader> Then it snapback above that S area
[10:12:25] <CaydenV> reg session gap fill profits might have been the snap back ???
[10:13:16] <CaydenV> im sorry the snap down im speaking of is different from what you said wrbtrader- excuse me
[10:13:34] <wrbtrader> Shorts Emini ES @ 2038.50 -> large size
[10:14:05] <wrbtrader> That snapback allowed a chance for a better entry price...
[10:14:27] <wrbtrader> I had two no fills @ 2040.00 and 2039.50
[10:14:49] <wrbtrader> Yet, still able to get what I needed
[10:15:22] <wrbtrader> Now it just needs to pick up volatility to reduce the chance of being stopped out
[10:15:35] <CaydenV> Now are you at a place where "you might not be hanging around too long"?
[10:15:53] <wrbtrader> I'm where I want to be
[10:16:05] <wrbtrader> Just need some volatility to get a WRB pt1
[10:16:22] <wrbtrader> If contraction shows up...I'll dump this
[10:16:44] <CaydenV> on a 4 minute TOS candle- somehow the the wrbhg looks like a good magnet target for your short. IDK
[10:17:07] <wrbtrader> Covered all Emini ES Short @ 2037.25 --> + 1.25
[10:17:17] <wrbtrader> contraction
[10:17:24] <CaydenV> yep
[10:17:25] <wrbtrader> with chop
[10:17:30] <CaydenV> nice work
[10:19:19] <wrbtrader> 5min and 15min chart clearly show tight trading range
[10:19:28] <wrbtrader> Thus, I'm now going to be less aggressive in my trades
[10:20:07] <CaydenV> on a 2 minute candle I have a open wrbhg at 9:48 ym only not the es, nq and tf
[10:25:09] <wrbtrader> Emini futures essentially STUCK inside yesterday's RANGE of the last hour on the regular session chart

##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 Québec, Canada in eastern daylight time
