##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.
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

[16:00:04] <wrbtrader> 10 contracts
[16:00:41] <wrbtrader> No juice in the 4pm est rush hour traffic
[16:01:40] <wrbtrader> That big gap down at the open on the regular session hours and then the fast run back upwards...took all the steam out the Eminis
[16:03:37] <mtntrader____> I think you are right. Pretty quiet closing today.
[16:04:27] <wrbtrader> The only good thing about day's like this that just drift slowly in a direction after a big opening movement...
[16:04:41] <wrbtrader> It sets up volatility for the next trading day
[16:05:09] <wrbtrader> Hopefully that volatility doesn't show up in the early morning hours before the regular trading session
[16:05:13] <mtntrader____> A lot of Mondays have been slow and quiet. Hope you are right.
[16:07:18] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini ES Long @ 2086.00 --> - 1.75
[16:09:00] <Senge> YM futures now spiking higher, ES not following.
[16:10:10] <wrbtrader> Long Emini ES @ 2086.25 -> large size
[16:10:23] <mtntrader____> I am going to have to re-subscribe to the TF futures. Sometimes the only sane one of the bunch.
[16:10:29] <wrbtrader> 20 contracts
[16:11:12] <wrbtrader> Emini ES futures has been struggling a lot lately (past month) with its volatility and ability to keep up with the other Eminis
[16:11:32] <wrbtrader> Yet, this morning it surprisingly kept the pace with the others
[16:12:48] <mtntrader____> Hmmm YM at its highs
[16:13:41] <wrbtrader> mtntrader...I haven't been doing much trading in Emini ES lately and I may temporary trade Emini TF for awhile because of the better volatility movements
[16:13:52] <wrbtrader> I'll make my decision this weekend
[16:14:28] <mtntrader____> Good idea. I thought with the higher fees that most retail traders would abandon the TF. Perhaps not so.
[16:15:27] <wrbtrader> I'm still holding 20 because that last minute surge try to push higher.
[16:15:57] <wrbtrader> I will unload it when the maintenance period completes and hopefully at a higher price
[16:16:39] <mtntrader____> Good luck. CL had a little spike at the end. Maybe some help from that.
[16:17:08] <wrbtrader> Yep...CL and YM
[16:18:30] <mtntrader____> I have to go. I'll check back later to see how you came out, wrbtrader. You almost never have a losing day. Guessing you won't today either.
[16:18:59] <wrbtrader> I don't mind losing days...I just want to keep them small as possible
[16:19:20] <wrbtrader> I do mind getting them on a Friday
[16:19:25] <mtntrader____> ;-)
[16:19:31] <wrbtrader> I hate thinking about it over a weekend
[16:32:13] <wrbtrader> Exited 1/2 Emini ES Long @ 2086.75 --> + 0.5
[16:43:38] <wrbtrader> Exited Remainder Emini ES Long @ 2086.25 --> 0
[16:45:54] <wrbtrader> Take care all and see all tomorrow
