Community Excerpts

It's not anyone else's job to remind you of what you're supposed to be trading... it's your responsibility to go on the respective exchanges websites and look at the current volumes and advisories on change of front month contracts. Hitman47-X1

My Quote Of The Day: I saw a good quote for trading. ‘People who fail in life often fail to fail enough.’ I never considered the positive side of failure before, but I can see how every successful person has failed at some point. FredDecker

Orders are best with order flow analysis. But cumulative delta will show sellers coming in when prices are still going up. That is institutional distribution.” tradersean

Jigsaw [Trading] is the best in the business for learning and using order flow.” Foster

What I Learned Today: Made some good observations concerning RSI levels that led me to take a few trades that maybe I wouldn't have in the past. Made a few ticks overall, but as often is the case, the ideas developed into handle winners 20 minutes later.” 90bideven

Eddie's Note

Crude has been in a tug of war lately. Ranging from the 50 handle to 55 handle, it’s been a battle of who is telling the truth. Can OPEC be trusted? Can they commit to an agreement? This is what is making the moves for us in Crude. We need to remember to be biased as traders and take what the market gives us each day.

Remember: Patience, Discipline and Management
