##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 any of our 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

[09:39:38] <wrbtrader> 10 contracts
[09:41:04] <wrbtrader> not a great entry but it will do for this type of price action
[09:43:04] <wrbtrader> WRB pt1 reached
[09:43:32] <wrbtrader> Covered all Emini ES Short @ 2738.25 --> + 2.5
[09:48:04] <wrbtrader> missed a Long signal @ 2739.00 :(
[09:48:18] <wrbtrader> too much overanalysis instead of just reacting
[09:59:00] <wrbtrader> ES struggling to get above a new R area
[09:59:28] <wrbtrader> @ 2735.50
[10:00:18] <wrbtrader> Shorts Emini ES @ 2733.75 -> large size

[10:01:04] <wrbtrader> WRB pt1 reached
[10:02:23] <wrbtrader> By the way, if nobody has been able to determine on their own...
[10:02:57] <wrbtrader> I've been using my strategies prior to my illness for the first hour of trading.
[10:03:41] <wrbtrader> After the first hour of trading has completed...I switch over to the new strategies I've been using since the beginning of 2018
[10:04:29] <wrbtrader> The new stuff give more frequent trade opportunities versus to the old stuff
[10:05:29] <wrbtrader> Yet, the new stuff I'm still designing the trade management rules "after" entry due to the recent high volatility market conditions
[10:07:07] <wrbtrader> Long Emini ES @ 2731.25 -> small size
[10:07:14] <wrbtrader> 3 contracts
[10:07:38] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini ES Long @ 2732.50 --> + 1.25
[10:07:46] <wrbtrader> shallow WRB pt1 reached
[10:08:15] <wrbtrader> could have held that a little longer because the volatility was increasing during the entry
[10:25:57] <wrbtrader> Long Emini ES @ 2728.00 -> small size
[10:26:04] <wrbtrader> 3 contracts
[10:27:37] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini ES Long @ 2726.50 --> - 1.5
[10:28:43] <wrbtrader> Long Emini ES @ 2725.75 -> small size

[10:32:42] <wrbtrader> Shorts Emini ES @ 2721.25 -> large size
[10:32:48] <wrbtrader> 10 contracts
[10:33:20] <wrbtrader> Covered all Emini ES Short @ 2721.25 --> 0
[10:33:46] <wrbtrader> Long Emini ES @ 2723.25 -> large size
[10:34:00] <wrbtrader> 10 contracts...sneaky booger
[10:34:34] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini ES Long @ 2725.50 --> + 2.25
[10:35:47] <wrbtrader> Trade management was key in the most recent 4 trades
[10:36:22] <wrbtrader> Profitable in those recent 4 trades that had 2 winners, 1 breakeven and 1 winner
[10:36:47] <wrbtrader> meant had 2 Losers, 1 Breakeven and 1 Winner
[10:40:27] <wrbtrader> Shorts Emini ES @ 2727.50 -> small size
[10:40:34] <wrbtrader> 3 contracts
[10:40:39] <wrbtrader> poor entry
[10:43:36] <wrbtrader> Covered all Emini ES Short @ 2731.50 --> - 4
[10:44:17] <wrbtrader> screwed over by the broker...wouldn't take my market order @ profit @ 2724.75
[10:44:28] <wrbtrader> Be right back...gotta make a phone call
[10:44:54] <wrbtrader> That's the 2nd time today and I know why
[11:00:02] <wrbtrader> Got TT on the phone...emailed them a video of the trade because they don't see the problem in my audit trail
[11:02:46] <wrbtrader> Now they got a team of folks reviewing their files (something more deeper than the audit trail).
[11:04:29] <wrbtrader> They gotta fix this especially since I have a "live video recording" of the trade and error message I received when I tried to exit that Short position" at +2.75 profit via a market order...twice...twice got error messages.
[11:04:52] <wrbtrader> Than it lets me out after it goes against me and hits my stop loss :(
[11:05:42] <Trendtrader> That is really messed up
[11:06:07] <wrbtrader> Yeah...was moving along great until those two problematic trades
[11:06:34] <wrbtrader> Imagine had my stop not been executed :(
[11:06:48] <wrbtrader> I could still be Short for a much bigger loss
[11:07:56] <Trendtrader> really irritating. trading is hard enough without having things like that working against you.
[11:15:16] <wrbtrader> TT called me :)
[11:15:59] <wrbtrader> They are shocked at what they see in the video because the error is not showing up in their logs
[11:17:01] <wrbtrader> Trendtrader...absolutely correct...trading is stressful enough...don't need this type of crap to make it "impossible" to make profits
[11:17:25] <wrbtrader> Rarely do I complain in here about my broker trade execution platform...
[11:18:06] <wrbtrader> Yet, two trades today got hit for -4 points each and I was "VERY LUCKY" it happen on 3 contract position and not a 10 contract position
[11:18:37] <wrbtrader> Worst...the time lost to send them the video and talk to them on the phone...missed a great Long position :(
[11:25:29] <wrbtrader> Ok...I've calm down now...back to trading and got my camtasia video recording back on again just in case the problem happens again
[11:26:19] <wrbtrader> Strange it wouldn't let me "market out" the position @ profit but it then auto executed my -4 point stop loss when it was hit
[11:30:29] <Trendtrader> That is very strange. When I've had wierd situations arise a market order usually does the trick to get me out in a hurry.
[11:31:15] <Trendtrader> So did they offer any resolution?
[11:35:10] <wrbtrader> First, I'm worry about trading right now...sitting on profits of $2,125.00
[11:36:10] <wrbtrader> Trying to profit those profits...was briefly above my +3k profit goal for the day when that problem happen...the loss took me back down to +2.125k
[11:37:36] <wrbtrader> I'm sure I'll get more phone calls this evening and I will request the trade to be honor considering I have "video recording" along with audio of my phone call in which I immediately called them :)
[11:37:50] <wrbtrader> They better honor the trade.
[11:38:24] <wrbtrader> anyways...back to trading (I hope)
[11:50:27] <Trendtrader> I would imagine that should be enough to convince them.
[11:51:16] <wrbtrader> They are convince and see evidence of the problem...
[11:51:43] <wrbtrader> I don't know what they will do to fix the trade (compensate me)
[11:53:27] <wrbtrader> They could be a jerk and talk about some "fine print" crap that we as traders sign when we open trading accounts about how they're "not liable". Yet, they know who I am and my website...they know I'll post the video but most likely ONLY on Youtube or something
[11:54:29] <wrbtrader> I think I'm more pssst because it ruin the win streak I had today :(
[11:55:30] <Trendtrader> Yeah I'd be upset if it were me too.
[11:55:55] <wrbtrader> Shorts Emini ES @ 2744.50 -> large size
[11:56:01] <wrbtrader> 10 contracts

[12:03:28] <wrbtrader> crazy chop
[12:04:44] <Trendtrader> yeah I don't like it.
[12:05:03] <wrbtrader> algos :(
[12:05:05] <Trendtrader> exit nq short 6907.75 +0.25 sim
[12:06:18] <wrbtrader> Exited all Emini ES Long @ 2745.00 --> - 2.75

[12:48:53] <wrbtrader> 10 contracts

[13:14:58] <wrbtrader> Trade made me nervous when it ran to a nice profit @ WRB pt1
[13:15:18] <wrbtrader> Exited via market order...it filled :)
[13:20:55] <wrbtrader> Overall just a range day since yesterday's afternoon for Emini ES futures even though the VIX and volatility (WRB Analysis) has had a few strange volatility spikes

[14:57:02] <wrbtrader> not sure why that pulled back like that especially on the increasing volatility
[15:13:14] <wrbtrader> I'm above my profit goal today of +3k in profits by +2k. Thus, +5.5k in profits even with my worst 2 trade losses of the day today due to broker platform error :)
[15:13:40] <wrbtrader> Gotta admit...I was angry and shaken up by that and had some fear in my near few trades after that
[15:13:58] <wrbtrader> I'm going to call it quits here...take care and 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 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.
