Business Hours: 8am - 5pm est (Mon - Fri) email@example.com
(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)
##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 ##TheStrategyLab Archive Chat Logs

[13:10:54] <wrbtrader> Anybody in here trading via Windows 10
[13:11:32] <mtntrader____> Yes, I use Windows 10. Works great.
[13:11:58] <wrbtrader> I'm looking to replace my laptop when I'm mobile...
[13:12:06] <wrbtrader> Not sure about Windows 10
[13:12:58] <mtntrader____> IMO, its the most stable Windows platform to date.
[13:16:29] <mtntrader____> One small annoying feature of Win 10 home edition is that is will update itself on it's own schedule (it will notify you before rebooting). The Pro version gives the user more control over the update scheduling.
[13:23:09] <wrbtrader> Thanks for that tip
[13:23:49] <wrbtrader> Wow...strange inverse looking charts between Emini ES and Emini TF
[13:24:30] <wrbtrader> although not as bad as I made it sound
[13:24:33] <wrbtrader> seemed
[13:45:36] <wrbtrader> Crude Oil CL futures still pushing lower and making Down WRB HiddenGap intervals in the process
[14:03:09] <wrbtrader> Emini futures insync on the volatility spike that's taking prices down
[14:03:47] <wrbtrader> Shorts Emini ES @ 2089.00 -> small size
[14:03:56] <wrbtrader> 5 contracts
[14:04:13] <wrbtrader> Emini TF futures in a WRB Zone 2min chart
[14:08:43] <wrbtrader> Covered all Emini ES Short @ 2088.00 --> + 1
[15:47:53] <wrbtrader> Long Emini ES @ 2094.50 -> large size
[15:48:04] <wrbtrader> 10 contracts
[15:56:05] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini ES Long @ 2096.75 --> + 2.25
[15:56:14] <wrbtrader> WRB pt2 reached\
[15:56:52] <wrbtrader> goal was only a WRB pt1 but I stayed in a little longer when the volatility started to increase
[16:03:03] <wrbtrader> big algo snapback on the 4pm est rush hour traffic
[16:03:44] <wrbtrader> Only 3 trades today for me but winners
[16:03:54] <wrbtrader> First time in a long time I've had all winners
[16:04:19] <wrbtrader> I've been sitting aroung 60% win:loss ratio for awhile
[16:07:06] <mtntrader____> Nicely done. It was another slow day, up until the last.
[16:13:56] <wrbtrader> Shorts Emini ES @ 2094.75 -> small size
[16:14:17] <wrbtrader> correction...
[16:14:35] <wrbtrader> Long Emini ES @ 2094.75 -> small size
[16:15:53] <wrbtrader> I'm going to hold this Long position through the maintenance period involving something I've noticed about the shift of the volatility lately into the Emini ES futures after the maintenance period re-opens
[16:16:44] <wrbtrader> There's been a growing volatility for a few minutes into the maintenance period and then for a few minutes after the maintence period
[16:17:01] <mtntrader____> I must have been reading your mind. I tried to get long from 2094.00, but was not filled.
[16:17:45] <wrbtrader> I tried 2094.25 and did not get a fill twice but I know it was bouncing a little in that price area
[16:18:11] <wrbtrader> I should have put that order in when it was 2094.00 for the 2094.25
[16:18:32] <mtntrader____> Yeah, I am a lousy chaser.
[16:19:17] <wrbtrader> This is a 5 contract trade...will be interesting to see if I can catch a few ticks or get my first loss of the trading day
[16:28:51] <wrbtrader> WRB Analysis -> - Your use of this chat room implies you're using concepts from WRB Analysis for price action trading to help trade either Stocks, Emini Futures (EMD, TF, ES, NQ, YM), EuroFX 6E Futures, Eurex/Euronext Futures (DAX, ESTX50, FTSE100, CAC40, BUND), Treasury Futures (ZF, ZN, ZB), Oil Futures (Brent, CL, HO, QM), Gold GC Futures, Natural Gas NG Futures, Exchange Traded Funds (DIA, GLD, IWM, OIH, XLE, QQQ, SPY), Hang Seng HSI Futures, NIFTY Futures, Forex Currencies (GbpUsd, EurUsd, EurYen, UsdCad) and other key market price actions.
[16:30:24] <wrbtrader> re-open without the volatility I was looking for
[16:31:02] <mtntrader____> Yep, no help.
[16:32:16] <wrbtrader> but Emini TF is dead as expected
[16:34:26] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini ES Long @ 2094.50 --> - 0.25
[16:34:50] <mtntrader____> Ha, you ruined your record.
[16:35:06] <wrbtrader> Yeah
[16:35:18] <mtntrader____> See you tomorrow.

trade signals via concepts from our strategies in the private
chat rooms called ##VolatilityTradingTSL
and they're not allowed to do such in ##TheStrategyLab.
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.
