Archive chat log for image to the left @

Our real-time chat room is free, professional and is an excellent source for traders to post real-time basic WRB Analysis, real-time trades or talk about other trading related topics as a public trade journal (diary). Also, the free chat room is well moderated (to keep the peace between members).

Note: Moderator means exactly what a moderator is at a typical forum...he/she moderates forum/chat discussions and removes/kicks out spammers, trolls and trouble makers. A moderator does not mean "head trader". As stated, I keep the peace in the chat room and I manage the chat room.

Image in this message post represents what many users in the private chat rooms were able to see via screen sharing...I took a quick screenshot while in screen sharing with other members for marketing purposes, for my own private trade journal documentation (other two monitors not shown for security reasons) and for verification that I traded on that specific trading day I posted real-time trades in the chat room for those that were not in the chat room or not allowed in the screen sharing for whatever reason with others that were allowed.

I document my trading with images like this every trading day (several different times per day) in combo with my daily brokerage statements so that I know what my monitors looked like on a specific trading day because I use different templates in my chart configurations and my broker PnL statement screens depending upon market conditions.

Currently, to qualify for two way screen sharing...a member must post real-time trades in the free chat room. Also, the member must post DOKs, daily broker statements and quantitative statistical analysis in their private thread. Further, use of VPNs and rented IP addresses not allowed. Recording of screen sharing not allowed unless everyone in the screen sharing agrees to the recording and those that violates this rule in my terms of use policy are banned from the free chat room, forum and website.

Terms of Use (TOU) Policy @

Almost 8250 views by "unique visitors" of this webpage and similar message post at the archival chat log forum. Only +100 of the readers of these two message posts were actually interested in joining the free chat room because the rest (most likely drive-by curiosity lookers) didn't join because they knew we would expect the same of DOKs, post real-time trades, post daily broker PnL statements in their private thread and use a professional trade journal software for their quantitative statistical analysis (new qualification requirement). This helps keep out the trouble makers, trolls and spammers although it sometimes results with some of them writing negative reviews about TheStrategyLab after we've banned them for violation of our terms of use policy or refuse to affiliate/partner up with them. We're ok with that statistics because we only want a handful of quality active members.

We don't care if you're on simulator or trading with real money but do not troll ##TheStrategyLab free chat room nor attempt to use the free chat room as a live trading room (signal calling) because if you try to do such...we will ban you as stated in our terms of use policy at the above link. There's just too many lazy traders or trolls out there trying to use free chat rooms to compensate for other services not offered while not liking the fact that they too should be posting documentation of their trading as other members are doing.


Regardless, the purpose of the free chat room is for you to use it as your trade journal although we highly recommend you use the free chat room in combo with a professional trade journal software like,,,,,,, or because these professional trade journal software will do the quantitative statistical analysis for you involving your trade performance so that you can determine on your own the strengths & weakness about your trading. Later, if you want to, you can then post your statistical analysis in your private thread for your eyes only in reviewing your trade results as you traverse from one trading day to the next trading day.

If you do not journal your're putting yourself at a huge disadvantage because you will not be able to use the information from a trade journal to adapt your trading whenever market conditions change for your trade strategy or for you change several times every year. Simply, without a trade have increased your chance for failure. If you do not agree...please go use another website because our free chat room will be useless to you and we wish you well in your trading.

Yet, to gain access to ##TheStrategyLab chat room you must qualify for access. The qualification helps to eliminate drive-by curiosity seekers that want access to the chat room while having no real intentions of learning/applying WRB Analysis. In addition, it helps to prevent traders from using ##TheStrategyLab when they do not understand the definition of a WRB, WRB Hidden GAP, key market event (KME), WRB Zone, R/S areas, reaction high/low, swing point price action, strong continuation price action, contracting volatility, expanding volatility, WRB profit targets via WRB Analysis. Also, it ensures that the chat room member understands these price action words/phrases/slang when other members use them in the chat room or at the TSL Support Forum.

1) ##TheStrategyLab free chat room does not provide education in the real-time chat room itself...the chat room is primarily designed to be your trade journal (diary) of your real-time trades, WRB Analysis commentary or general market observations. Education that is provided is via the WRB Analysis free study guide and you can then use the TSL Support forum here to post your questions, DOKs and quantitative statistical analysis about WRB Analysis. Yet, you are allowed to ask questions in the real-time chat room involving your application of WRB Analysis to stocks, futures or forex currencies trading instruments only after you've learned the WRB Analysis free study guide that can be downloaded @

2) Users of ##TheStrategyLab free chat room post their price action thoughts or trades in real-time involving WRB Analysis...including myself. Yet, ##TheStrategyLab chat room is not a signal calling chat room even though articles by researcher Dr. Dean Handley in FuturesTruth magazine and others list ##TheStrategyLab chat room as one of the top trading chat rooms in the world in various trader publications after they studied my trades and the trades of other users in real-time as they occurred. Excerpts from those articles are stored @ even though we've recently (December 2014) asked to be removed from Dr. Dean Handley database due to his questionable activities that has been documented by other users of WRB Analysis that we personally know and trust. Simply, I no longer wanted any association with his website. In contrast, we remain on the top trading chat rooms list that's listed by others. Yet, to be clear, I do not offer a signal calling service because I do not have the time to manage the free chat room as a signal calling service because such requires a live trading room with a head trader telling others what to trade and when to enter/exit trades. ##TheStrategyLab does not offer such a service even though users are posting their real-time trades/analysis.

Regardless, we're still one of the top chat rooms and its free and well moderated...the latter we have bad reputation due to our vetting process (qualification to get into the chat room) to look for quality members and quick we're quick to ban trolls. In contrast, if you're interested in my trade can purchase them via the advance trade methods called Advance WRB Analysis and Volatility Trading Report (VTR) trade signal strategies.

##TheStrategyLab is primarily designed for you to use the chat room as a real-time trade journal so that you can have a real time stamp archive of your trades or your market commentaries each trading day as you navigate from one trade to the next trade. Further, the 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 for the sole purpose to watch what others are doing. 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...eventually you'll get bored and leave.

If you're not able to talk in the chat room about anything you see on your charts for whatever reasons because you think its a distraction from your trading...we highly recommend you be active in posting elsewhere (e.g. in your private thread at the forum) about WRB Analysis after the markets close or you're talking about your own trading in the chat room after the markets close because there's usually a few members still logged into the chat room even though the markets are closed. This will allow you to remain qualified for access to ##TheStrategyLab chat room and this will show us that you're actually here to improve your trading instead of being a silent lurker.

Note: Fee-base clients of are not required to post DOKs to gain access to ##TheStrategyLab chat room if/when they choose to use the chat room. Yet, if fee-base clients do log into ##TheStrategyLab chat room...they are not allowed to discuss concepts from our fee-base strategies within ##TheStrategyLab chat room because they already have their own private chat room or can easily communicated with me in real-time via logging onto IRC although they aren't in the chat room or they can communicate with me via Skype that's designated for real-time strategy discussions. Yet, if we suspect a fee-base client of one of our other services in trying to use the free chat room as a live trading room (signal calling service)...we'll ban the fee-base member from the free chat room.

The most common trading instruments you'll see discussed in ##TheStrategyLab real-time chat room are Gold GC futures, Crude Oil CL futures, Brent Oil futures, Emini ES futures, Emini RTY (TF) futures, Emini NQ futures, Emini YM futures, Eurex DAX futures, Forex EurUsd, QQQ, SPY, IWM, DIA and VIX. In addition, if you trade different trading instruments (e.g. stocks, treasury futures, Eurex BUND or other Forex price actions) we welcome traders of other trading instruments that are listed @

The reason why we want traders of different trading instruments to use the our free chat room is help ensure traders are not trying to use the free chat room as a live trading room and that they'll truly their to document their own trading...using the free chat room as a trade journal of their thoughts in combo with their brokerage statements.

Lets Get You Started

First of all, as a reminder, fee-base clients of are not required to post DOKs to gain access to ##TheStrategyLab chat room if/when they choose to use the chat room. Yet, if you're not a fee-base client, you must do the below steps to gain access to the log-in instructions and password for ##TheStrategyLab chat room. Also, the below steps do not give you access to the free FVB trade signal strategy. The FVB free trade signal strategy has separate instructions @

If your goal is to become a profitable trader, the first thing you must realize is that you need to learn/understand the price action you're trading.

Image Step 1 - You must first register/join our TSL Support Forum @

Image Step 2 - Post your trader profile message post @

Note: The questions you answered in the registration process is not your trader profile. In contrast, your trader profile is an actual message post that you must post at the above link just like every one else. Also, do not post the below explained DOKs at the above trader profile link.

Image Step 3 - You must download the WRB Analysis free study guide and then learn its tutorial chapters 1, 2 and 3 because ##TheStrategyLab chat room is only for traders learning/applying WRB Analysis. Simply, you must learn basic concepts of WRB Analysis so that you can identify WRBs, WRB Hidden GAPs and Profit Targets.

WRB Analysis free study guide @

Image Step 4 - You must demonstrate your knowledge (a.k.a. DOK) to show me that you understand the basic concepts from the WRB Analysis free study guide involving WRBs, WRB Hidden GAPs and Profit Targets. If your DOKs are missing any of the mentioned three key will not be allowed access to ##TheStrategyLab chat room. The DOKs will ensure that you have a basic understanding of WRB Analysis and ensure you understand any conversations in the chat room involving WRBs, WRB Hidden GAPs or WRB profit targets. Further, the DOKs will help prevent drive-by curiosity seekers that want access to the chat room while having no real intentions of learning/applying WRB Analysis along with ensuring traders didn't join the chat room in an attempt to use it as a signal calling chat room. ##TheStrategyLab chat room is not a signal calling chat room. In contrast, it is your trade journal of WRB Analysis or trades and members will only help you with your WRB Analysis if you ask questions.

To post your DOK, click on the New Topic button @ and below you'll see a few DOK examples by other traders. Note: Do not click on the Post Reply button while reading someone's DOK to prevent your DOK from being posted as a reply to someone's else DOK.

Image Post a DOK chart with annotations of WRBs and WRB Hidden GAPs as described in tutorial chapter 1.

DOK example @

Image Post a DOK chart with annotations of WRB profit target 1 and WRB Hidden GAP profit target 1 or WRB Zone profit target 1 as described in the trade management section of the free study guide. You can use your own trade signal with WRB Analysis profit targets. If you do not have a trade signal, you must then pretend any price area on your chart was a trade signal for the purpose of annotating the price action afterwards with WRB pt1 and WRB Hidden GAP pt1 or WRB Zone pt1.

Note: You must show in the chart the location of your trade signal (Long or Short signal) that's correlated with the WRB Analysis profit targets that you show on your charts. Yet, you do not need to explain the trade signal.

DOK example @

Yet, if you're having problems with understanding or identifying WRBs, WRB Hidden GAPs or WRB profit targets via the definitions in the free study your questions here at the forum.

Image Step 5 - Post an image of your monitor showing your most recent trades (simulator or real money) in your broker trade execution platform. Also, we must be able to see the broker trade execution platform in the image and see it down below in your task bar along with some executed trades...simulator or real money.

If you don't want other members or guest visitors to see your image...please send and email to us to request a private thread for you to upload the image and we'll never share that image and never share any content from your private thread with matter the reason for security & privacy reasons.

Broker Profit/Loss Statement example @ (more image examples in my trader profile)

Image Step 6 - Send us an email or private message that you confirm you understand the below participation rules and that you agreed to participate in the chat room via talking about the price action on your charts involving either WRB, WRB Hidden GAP, key market events, contracting volatility, volatility spikes, swing point price actions, strong continuation price actions, WRB Zone analysis, WRB profit targets, WRB Hidden GAP profit targets, reaction highs/lows, trade management, breaking market news, general market news, market context or real-time trades (simulator or real-money) involving the price action you're watching.

Traders that log in and then lurk (don't participate) consistently will eventually be removed (KICK or BANNED) without exception from the chat room because these types of traders bring down the quality of the chat room and/or attempting to use the chat room for other reasons that its not designed. Simply, the chat room is only useful if you participate and use it as a personal journal of your WRB Analysis thoughts or trades in combo with your broker profit/loss statements another piece of the puzzle to successful trading.

Yet, if you do not feel comfortable in posting in the chat room while using the chat room, you must then post a screenshot of your trades for that trading day in your private thread for the day you used the chat room. Also, do not use the excuse you're only there in the chat room to learn when in fact you can just read the archive chat logs @

Disclaimer: Today's trading performance is not an indication of my future performance and not an indication of the future performance for any trader that decides to learn/apply WRB Analysis. The risk of loss can be substantial. Therefore, you must carefully consider if trading is suitable for you within the context of your financial condition. is an educational and research site. The resources on this site are provided for informational purposes only and should not be used to replace professional educational and professional research because we are retail traders only. TheStrategyLab does not accept liability for your use of the website and its resources.

We make no guarantees of success and your level of success is dependent upon other factors including your skill as a trader, knowledge, financial condition, market conditions and other factors. Trading is stressful and you should always consult a doctor in all matters relating to physical and mental health of you and your family because trading can impact beyond your financial condition regardless if you're a profitable or losing trader.

Image ##TheStrategyLab Chat Room Primary Rules:

Image Free chat room and the chat room is only for traders learning/applying WRB Analysis in their trading.

Image The chat room primary purpose is to be your journal of your thoughts about the price action you're trading and/or real-time trades being posted by you (your choice of which to do when you use the chat room). Further, your participation in the chat room will help you with your trading via providing critical feedback about how you interact with the markets…something you can not get from your broker statements all by themselves because all chat room conversation is stored in archives for you to review any time you want. Therefore, do not log-in and then be silent because you'll be giving nothing back to the chat room as a useful collaboration resource and you'll failed yourself in revealing your thoughts on any particular trading day while you were trading.

Image ##TheStrategyLab chat room is not a signal calling chat room nor is it a live trading room with a head trader telling you when to buy and when to sell. We do not have the time/energy/resources to operate ##TheStrategyLab as a signal calling chat room and we do not offer those types of services.

We only use the chat room to post our trades for transparency, for our own trade journal (diary) documentations and to moderate (keep the peace between members) along with removing any user causing problems for other users of the chat room.

Image ##TheStrategyLab is not mentoring in the chat room...teaching others how to trade. In fact, we do not believe a trader can be mentored into a successful trader via an online chat room, live trading room or whatever you want to call it because we strongly believe that mentoring can only successfully be done via in person mentoring...teacher and student sitting side by side in the students home office or the student sitting side by side with the teacher in the teacher's home office.

This will allow the mentor to see personally other variables that's causing a trader to not become profitable that may or may not have anything to do with trading...variables that traders commonly hide from mentors in online mentoring.

Image If/when you do log-in to ##TheStrategyLab chat room, you’re required to post at least one price action commentary involving WRB Analysis or one real-time trade (simulator or real money) per day you use the chat room.

For those traders confused about the chat room participation rule, below are examples of commentary that involves participating in the chat room:

Forex EURUSD just produced a WRB Hidden GAP at 9am est on the hourly chart.

Emini ES futures testing the R area of the most recent WRB Hidden GAP on the 5min chart.

Contracting volatility in Light Crude Oil CL futures on the 15min chart.

Is that a WRB Hidden GAP in Emini TF futures on the 3min chart @ 1145am est ?

Gold GC futures volatility spike in reaction to the ECB speech.

Low volatility tight trading range today so far in Forex GBPJPY.

Trade in Eurex DAX futures just reached a WRB profit target.

International Monetary Fund (IMF) key market event @ 1030am est may have impact on the EuroFX 6E futures

There are more examples of WRB Analysis commentaries @ @

Image Also, if you’re going to ask someone questions about an open trade, ask your questions after the person has posted a trade exit or whenever you see the trader talking in the chat room during their open trade. In addition, type his/her user name in your question to ensure the trader knows you’re talking to him/her.

Image If you're not able to access the chat room after having been using the chat room, please revisit the password thread here at the forum to get the new password because you're most likely still using the old password that's no longer valid.

Yet, if you think posting real-time WRB Analysis or real-time trades is a distraction for you in the chat room, please post your end of the day commentaries at the TSL Support Forum or within any thread you think is suitable for your WRB Analysis commentary @ to prevent us from thinking you’re LURKING (not participating).

Reminder: If you see someone else that’s consistently lurking (not participating) in ##TheStrategyLab chat room, that trader may have a private thread at one of our discussion forums that he/she is actively posting WRB Analysis at the end of the day, actively posting DOKs in their private thread or actively posting brokerage statements & quantitative statistical analysis in their private thread. Thus, we decide whom is violating our "no lurking" rule that's part of our terms of use policy...not you.
