##TheStrategyLab primary purpose is for you to use the free chat room as a trade journal of your trades via you posting WRB Analysis of the price action you see on your monitors, posting price action analysis, ask real-time questions about WRB Analysis or posting your real-time trades (simulator or real money) in a timestamp environment after you've received confirmation from your broker trade execution platform. Simply, the free chat room is a trade journal of your trading day (thoughts and trades). In fact, if you think the only feedback you need is your broker statements and you decide to not discuss WRB Analysis nor post any real-time information about how you're viewing the markets nor post real-time trades...the free chat room will be a waste of your time and you will increase the odds of failing at trading.

The free chat room is located on the Freenode IRC network along with being a serious professional trading chat room for traders that want to talk about their use of 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) merged with their trade methods to improve the performance of their trade methods regardless if they're a position trader, swing trader, day trader, trend trader or range trader. Therefore, you're welcome to use the free chat room to ask questions about WRB Analysis, post your 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.

With that said, thanks for reviewing (reading) the below timestamped trades, price action analysis or market commentaries 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

[09:44:11] <Tigerman______> less Big investors
[09:44:23] <wrbtrader> Yes...that's my personal opinion
[09:44:26] <Tigerman______> a costant money flow out
[09:44:55] <Tigerman______> plus I think a costant Re-balance in Index
[09:45:15] <Tigerman______> to continue give the good performer to passive investors

[11:01:28] <wrbtrader> 10 contracts
[11:01:32] <wrbtrader> re-entry
[11:01:50] <wrbtrader> price action still within the activity of a prior trade signal
[11:02:03] <wrbtrader> shallow WRB pt1 reached
[11:03:45] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini ES Long @ 2842.00 --> - 49.75
[11:04:00] <wrbtrader> correction...
[11:04:14] <wrbtrader> +0.50
[11:04:21] <wrbtrader> I posted the wrong entry price
[11:04:50] <wrbtrader> Long Upper Shadow interval first appeared in Emini NQ futures...
[11:05:08] <wrbtrader> not a trail stop pick...I exited because of what I saw in NQ
[11:05:35] <wrbtrader> +0.25 (not +0.50)
[11:06:00] <wrbtrader> Long Emini ES @ 2821.75 -> large size
[11:06:07] <wrbtrader> re-entry
[11:06:20] <wrbtrader> ES / NQ trying again to become correlated
[11:06:41] <wrbtrader> YM joining in and RTY too but looks weak so far
[11:09:07] <wrbtrader> Every trade so far today has had the trail stop pick pocketed "before" I could react to the price movement to exit before the trail stop pick.
[11:09:41] <wrbtrader> Market action looks slow but obviously I'm slower in my reactions
[11:11:23] <wrbtrader> I slepted in a little later today and I was slow to get online...maybe its just a slow day for me before the first trade of the day :)
[11:12:06] <wrbtrader> shallow WRB pt1 reached
[11:13:23] <wrbtrader> I had an earlier trade like that with a shallow WRB pt1...it moved a little more in my favor and then I adjusted my protective trail stop...stop then got pick pocketed
[11:14:12] <wrbtrader> This time I'm going to be "slow" in adjusting my trail stop...its now a mental game.
[11:16:17] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini ES Long @ 2845.25 --> + 23.5
[11:16:33] <wrbtrader> correction again...
[11:16:36] <wrbtrader> geesh
[11:20:14] <wrbtrader> entry @ 2841.75 and exit @ 2845.25 for +3.50
[11:21:03] <wrbtrader> YM is the reason for the recent pullback
[11:21:51] <wrbtrader> Everybody was working together and then it stopped about the time I exited the Emini ES trade
[11:22:46] <wrbtrader> Earlier today it was the stronger of the Emini futures and now its trying to become the weakest
[11:31:00] <wrbtrader> Another tough trading day that's mentally draining for me but I'm profitable today...so far
[11:31:17] <wrbtrader> May do one more trade and call it quits early today
[11:32:55] <Tigerman______> yeah not a easy day to trade
[11:33:12] <Tigerman______> it needs great money and risk manage
[11:33:31] <Tigerman______> take care all see next time
[11:33:44] <wrbtrader> Bye
[12:01:32] <Trendtrader> see you next time. no trades for me today.
[12:35:17] <werner1> ok take care all
[12:54:48] <wrbtrader> Long Emini ES @ 2847.50 -> large size
[12:55:00] <wrbtrader> scaled in
[12:55:03] <wrbtrader> 10 contracts
[12:56:04] <wrbtrader> I need to check my vision...should have entered @ 2847.00 or 2846.75
[12:56:26] <wrbtrader> not sure how I missed that initial entry
[12:57:04] <wrbtrader> Will make it tougher to hold this trade in the lunch time slowness of the volatility
[12:59:18] <wrbtrader> resistance gaining strength at the R area of the most recent Down WRB Hidden GAP interval
[13:00:55] <wrbtrader> Another trade that needs help from the other Eminis and they have not jumped on board yet
[13:01:29] <wrbtrader> YM trying to help now
[13:01:50] <wrbtrader> NQ volatility a little weaker than the others
[13:02:03] <wrbtrader> I needs to join in too on increasing volatility
[13:02:41] <wrbtrader> NQ now helping too...with increasing volatility
[13:03:00] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini ES Long @ 2848.25 --> + 0.75
[13:03:08] <wrbtrader> shallow WRB pt1 reached
[13:03:44] <wrbtrader> Had to take it because it is lunchtime trading session...typically my worst trading session of the entire day
[13:04:09] <wrbtrader> Simply, I didn't want to hang around in the trade after a WRB pt1 was reached
[13:05:23] <wrbtrader> Take care all...I'm going to take a nap to rest.
[13:05:35] <wrbtrader> I'm done for the day...see all tomorrow
[13:05:35] <wrbtrader> I'm done for the day...see all tomorrow

##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 free 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.

The free chat room is not a signal calling trading room and we do not believe in the business model of a head trader telling other traders when to buy and sell. Its a flawed approach to trading and its a flawed substitution for mentoring in which a trader can not learn how to be a successful independent trader.

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.
