Today's TheStrategyLab chat room excerpt image to the left @ http://www.thestrategylab.com/images/050120-thestrategylab-wrbtrader-chat-room-review.png

Complete text chat logs below

##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).

TheStrategyLab 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 Zones, WRB/WRB Hidden GAP profit targets, Key Market Events, Reaction Highs/Lows, Expanding Volatility, R area of WRB Zone, S area of WRB Zone, midpoint of WRB Zone and speed of the price action) 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 TheStrategyLab chat room to ask questions about WRB Analysis, post your real-time price action analysis involving WRB Analysis merged with your own trade methods, post real-time trades via WRB Analysis or talk about general market issues impacting today's price action involving stocks, futures, exchange traded funds or forex currencies as part of your trade journal. 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 alerts room and we ban traders for attempting to use our chat room as a signal calling trade alerts room for the purpose to mimic/copy/piggyback 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 chat room logs (we use it to provide critical missing info for our broker statements) a part of your trading routine because you will sometimes find useful market context information that's critical to understanding price action trading.

Yet, be aware that many traders (including myself) are posting redacted screenshots of timestamp trade fills in broker trade execution platform and quantitative statistical analysis of the trade performance via WRB Analysis in private thread at the forum. I use the timestamp redacted screenshots to verify if a trader is correctly using WRB Analysis...info I can not get from their broker statements alone.

Remember this too...most users of WRB Analysis do not use the free chat room but they still are posting their DOKs to verify their understanding of WRB Analysis and posting timestamp trade fills (simulator or real money) in broker trade execution platform to verify trade performance in their private thread.

To qualify for access to ##TheStrategyLab free 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

[09:52:38] <Tigerman______> yep as you can see price action retraced fast last downspike
[09:53:05] <Tigerman______> it was a good wrb interval at start :(
[09:53:55] <Tigerman______> this is the Real action situation you cannot properly learn via simply printed charts
[09:54:48] <Tigerman______> also many do some sym trades and think they are able to enter or exit as they want
[09:54:58] <Tigerman______> just fantasy trades
[09:55:14] <Tigerman______> you never get a fill in real time
[09:56:21] <wrbtrader> Tigerman, I use to talk a lot about that under the title "Dangers of learning from Hindsight Charts"
[09:57:10] <wrbtrader> It was one of the reasons why I started the free chat room
[09:58:01] <wrbtrader> We gotta have a real-time log of the price movement form different perspectives of the members for the same hingsight chart

[10:01:21] <wrbtrader> Sometimes when I see the VIX and Market Depth like this...
[10:01:32] <wrbtrader> I think the big boyz take advantage of it
[10:02:16] <wrbtrader> Move the price action around very quickly...Up and Down until they get what they want and then move it strongly in a particular direction
[10:02:22] <Tigerman______> one think I learned.... this is the action to avoid and do something else
[10:02:27] <wrbtrader> Reason why I'm expecting a big volatility spike

[11:10:49] <Tigerman______> wrbtrader how about TSL forum people continue post stats and broker fills ?
[11:11:28] <Tigerman______> how general stats I mean average win/rate
[11:13:12] <wrbtrader> Only a few do in their private threads but I'm not sure what you mean by "stats on broker fills"
[11:14:55] <Tigerman______> sorry I meant based on their broker fill so real trades how is that percent in win/loss ratio
[11:15:56] <wrbtrader> Only a few do such in reference to their broker fills
[11:15:59] <Tigerman______> so you see over months if people improve or you can give some advice
[11:16:27] <wrbtrader> meant "trade fills" in comparison to what they put in for their trade orders
[11:16:50] <wrbtrader> I can't give advice about that stuff
[11:17:03] <wrbtrader> I don't use their broker or they don't use my broker
[11:17:24] <Tigerman______> I mean advice on improve their win/rate and stats
[11:17:30] <Tigerman______> not broker related
[11:17:59] <wrbtrader> Only advice is built in already...
[11:18:04] <Tigerman______> I say broker fill just to be sure is not backtesting
[11:18:31] <wrbtrader> Whatever is your trade signal...try not to chase (worst fill) and wait for a retracement to get a better fill price
[11:19:13] <wrbtrader> I myself like to Short on upticks and Long on downticks
[11:19:35] <wrbtrader> Psychological...its a weird way to enter a trade
[11:20:03] <Tigerman______> yeah just in fast market you miss lot of trades
[11:20:26] <Tigerman______> anyway I agreed on better fill price
[11:21:30] <Tigerman______> what I m asking is these traders post their win/rate? so based or real trade in their platfor how is their average win/rate ? and point x day?
[11:21:55] <Tigerman______> just out of curiousity
[11:21:55] <wrbtrader> Yes...they post their win/rate in their private threads
[11:22:32] <Tigerman______> ah ok good
[11:22:34] <wrbtrader> Some keep it simple...they just post a screenshot of whatever statistical data their broker gives them
[11:23:10] <wrbtrader> I've only seen a few keep their own personal stats that's different from the generic broker stats
[11:23:34] <Tigerman______> yeah thats odd
[11:24:20] <Tigerman______> without those important information one doesn t know how his trading is
[11:24:38] <wrbtrader> I myself keep a lot of WRB Analysis...something the broker obviously can not do for me
[11:24:55] <wrbtrader> meant a lot of WRB Anaylysis stats
[11:25:42] <wrbtrader> For example, percentage of my trades that reach a WRB pt1, WRB p2 and WRB pt3
[11:25:54] <Tigerman______> I ask win/rate also point in win trade vs losers are important
[11:26:26] <wrbtrader> I've seen a lot of strange stats being posted by other members
[11:26:48] <wrbtrader> Stuff obviously they're i"nterested in but to me personally seems "useless
[11:27:09] <Tigerman______> I can have a 55/45 win loss rate and be good via larger winners
[11:28:54] <Tigerman______> simply I ll do my stats manually
[11:29:19] <Tigerman______> no find a good 3rd part doing the way I like
[11:30:37] <Tigerman______> infact after finish my docs today I ll call it quit now
[11:30:47] <Tigerman______> take care wrbtrader and all see next time
[12:05:24] <wrbtrader> Shorts Emini ES @ 2890.00 -> small size
[12:05:33] <wrbtrader> 3 contracts
[12:11:30] <wrbtrader> Covered all Emini ES Short @ 2889.75 --> + 0.25
[12:11:47] <wrbtrader> That should have dropped like a rock but it didn't :(
[12:12:04] <wrbtrader> May be the time of the day...sticky contraction usually around this time period
[12:35:50] <wrbtrader> Shorts Emini ES @ 2890.25 -> small size
[12:35:53] <wrbtrader> 3 contracts re-entry
[12:36:13] <wrbtrader> asuni...I got your email and will reply later today
[12:40:23] <wrbtrader> poor correlation right now
[12:40:45] <wrbtrader> Emini ES trying to retrace lower while Emini NQ trying to push higher
[12:41:03] <wrbtrader> I'm now expecting a volatility spike when they try to correlate with each other
[12:41:17] <wrbtrader> trail stop tighten
[12:42:45] <wrbtrader> small WRB pt1 reached
[12:44:34] <wrbtrader> Covered all Emini ES Short @ 2887.00 --> + 3.25
[12:46:51] <wrbtrader> I'm calling it quits here...gotta do my bi-weekly grocery store shopping and then drive to a native place to drop off some supplies to some friends
[12:47:02] <wrbtrader> Take care and see all tomorrow

Bloomberg Markets: The Close' Full Show (05/07/2020) @ https://www.bloomberg.com/news/videos/2020-05-08/-bloomberg-markets-the-close-full-show-05-07-2020-video

@ wrbtrader @ Frequently Asked Questions @ Risk Warnings @ Terms of Use Policy


##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.
