##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.

Image This is not a signal calling (trade alerts) room. Our free chat room has never been advertised as a trade room and we ban traders for attempting to use our chat room as a trade alerts room for the purpose to mimick/copy trades posted by other members.

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

[09:40:52] <wrbtrader> Covered all Emini ES Short @ 2884.00 --> - 0.5

[09:44:28] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini ES Long @ 2885.75 --> + 0.25
[09:45:12] <wrbtrader> Tigerman...most people that say they are using automation have actually backtested their trade method
[09:45:21] <Tigerman______> I mean unless they are smart to move stop acording to vola action very difficult be in profit
[09:45:30] <wrbtrader> Thus, they know how to automate their stops and at what price
[09:45:55] <Tigerman______> umm... action is so different day in /out
[09:46:17] <Tigerman______> Algo have to be too smart
[09:46:28] <wrbtrader> Very few automation systems take into account the volatility except for automation involving Options trading
[09:46:36] <Tigerman______> not real thesese days
[09:47:00] <Tigerman______> too many parameters
[09:47:21] <wrbtrader> Automation success is very similar to manual trading...its just not discussed that much
[09:47:29] <Tigerman______> retail traders mostly are amotoers not programmers
[09:47:50] <wrbtrader> As you noted...if they don't consider the volatility...it will be difficult trading via automation
[09:48:24] <wrbtrader> Shorts Emini ES @ 2884.00 -> large size
[09:48:31] <wrbtrader> 10 contracts
[09:48:43] <Tigerman______> more then difficult you got just loss at the end
[09:48:50] <wrbtrader> Emini ES having a lot of problems with keeping up with Emini NQ

[09:49:29] <Tigerman______> look at you today wrbtrader
[09:49:42] <wrbtrader> Long Emini ES @ 2885.25 -> large size
[09:49:48] <Tigerman______> you use tight stop
[09:49:52] <wrbtrader> 10 contracts
[09:50:26] <wrbtrader> I use wide 4 point stop but I then immediately tighten my trail stop into a tight stop
[09:51:04] <Tigerman______> yeah acording to vola
[09:51:19] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini ES Long @ 2886.25 --> + 1
[09:51:55] <wrbtrader> Volatility has the major input but there are other variables too...
[09:52:18] <wrbtrader> Current profit level, time of day, key market event and so on
[09:53:14] <wrbtrader> Shorts Emini ES @ 2884.50 -> large size

[10:06:16] <wrbtrader> Covered all Emini ES Short @ 2880.00 --> + 2.5
[10:06:24] <wrbtrader> :(
[10:07:10] <wrbtrader> that should have run down much further but the slow contraction in the volatility prevented that from happening

[10:14:53] <wrbtrader> That reaction low was also the S area of the range
[10:22:33] <Tigerman______> price climb up in ES while vola decline

[11:02:03] <wrbtrader> Shorts Emini ES @ 2879.00 -> large size
[11:02:19] <wrbtrader> 5+5 contracts
[11:05:35] <wrbtrader> bouncing around too much as in chop
[11:06:19] <wrbtrader> Covered all Emini ES Short @ 2879.00 --> 0
[11:06:30] <wrbtrader> trail pick pocketed
[11:06:57] <wrbtrader> I waited a little longer before tightning that trail...didn't help
[11:09:32] <wrbtrader> Long Emini ES @ 2881.50 -> large size

[11:10:08] <wrbtrader> increasing volatility

[11:14:32] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini ES Long @ 2882.75 --> + 1.25
[11:14:38] <wrbtrader> HOlding a little longer because Emini YM at an intraday high
[11:15:09] <wrbtrader> Emini ES not able to push above its most recent high
[11:15:23] <wrbtrader> @ 2884.00
[11:15:49] <wrbtrader> I had an order to exit at 2884.25
[11:18:22] <wrbtrader> Sorry...when I was talking about YM...I meant RTY
[11:18:53] <wrbtrader> I had arranged my charts location differently this morning...
[11:19:22] <wrbtrader> RTY and YM charts have switched places on my monitors
[11:19:44] <wrbtrader> Long Emini ES @ 2883.25 -> large size
[11:19:57] <wrbtrader> 10 contracts
[11:20:34] <wrbtrader> lets see it it can push above that most recent reaction high of 2884.00 the 2nd try at it
[11:21:08] <wrbtrader> RTY and YM suddenluy weaken
[11:21:22] <wrbtrader> NQ too quiet
[11:21:58] <Tigerman______> I was very busy today with in out my brakets orders
[11:22:09] <Tigerman______> this chop was too nasty for me
[11:22:28] <Tigerman______> I did better results following vola in tick seconds charts
[11:22:41] <Tigerman______> otherwise got many loss on minute charts
[11:22:58] <Tigerman______> due chop an spike against me soon after my entries
[11:25:39] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini ES Long @ 2884.75 --> + 1.5
[11:25:51] <wrbtrader> incorrect...
[11:26:04] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini ES Long @ 2883.75 --> + 0.5
[11:26:45] <wrbtrader> 2884.75 was my exit order
[11:27:02] <wrbtrader> couldn't reach it...so I dumped the trade
[11:32:02] <Tigerman______> take care all
[11:36:35] <wrbtrader> Shorts Emini ES @ 2881.75 -> large size
[11:36:57] <wrbtrader> 10 contracts
[11:37:04] <wrbtrader> chasing
[11:39:59] <wrbtrader> Emini RTY obviously now the one dragging this back down
[11:40:30] <wrbtrader> Covered all Emini ES Short @ 2880.50 --> + 1.25
[11:40:50] <wrbtrader> not a WRB pt1 exit
[11:41:17] <wrbtrader> random exit after I saw that RTY stopped at the S area of a most recent reaction low
[11:42:16] <wrbtrader> Now below the S area
[11:49:14] <wrbtrader> Long Emini ES @ 2880.75 -> large size
[11:49:21] <wrbtrader> tough price area here
[11:49:26] <wrbtrader> 10 contracts
[11:49:56] <wrbtrader> Emini RTY found a little support
[11:50:16] <wrbtrader> Expanding volatility in Emini YM
[11:50:43] <wrbtrader> Emini NQ slowly following
[11:53:32] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini ES Long @ 2883.00 --> + 2.25
[11:54:16] <wrbtrader> not a WRB pt1...instead I exited above the R area of the most recent Down WRB Hidden GAP interval
[12:04:21] <wrbtrader> VIX > 14
[12:05:02] <wrbtrader> Yet, overall the volatility has been able to produce trade opportunities in the Emini futures...
[12:05:47] <wrbtrader> although it did create that earlier problematic range price action until it was able to push below the S area of that problematic range area
[12:48:16] <Donnin________> if we get a closse above 43
[12:48:26] <Donnin________> should a big pop to upside

##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 with a head trader telling you what to trade, when to buy or when to sell. In fact, 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.

Commonly discussed trading instruments from stocks, futures, exchange traded funds and forex currencies:
