change your stops to stop limit orders instead of stop market orders and you shouldn't have any slippage.

 

Thanks,

 

On entries I use stoplimits.

 

On my exits however, stops are the only logical choice

Hi Guys...I have been trading crude for most of 2010 and it has fast become one of my favorite markets to trade. Here's my two cents on slippage. I typically will see 1-3 ticks of slippage when I do have it. Lately it hasn't been a big issue for me at all. Occasionally I will see a 4-5 tick slip but it is rare. Inventory report wednesday's can get a little interesting but thats about it.

 

My problem with stop limits on entry is that you will miss trades from time to time. When CL starts moving you won't always get your fill with a stop limit. I hate missing moves on CL so I use stop markets for entry and accept the slippage when it comes. As long as the slippage stays around 1-3 ticks I'm ok with that. If it starts to jump to 4-5 ticks on a regular basis then that changes things and I will need to reevaluate.

Entering on stop limits can be dangerous as the above poster said - you will basically guarantee fills on all losing trades and guarantee missing some winning trades. Not my cup of tea. I'd prefer to do the opposite.

dinerotrader,

 

CL has been very difficult to trade this week. We haven't seen the nice early movement that we have been used to in the past. The moves are either happening premarket are later in the session. This has thrown a wrench in my trade plan because the moves are happening outside of my trade times.

 

I had a feeling we would see a late session breakout today but after the choppy morning I didn't want to risk it. This is one of the first down weeks I have had on CL in a long time. Let's hope things get back to normal next week.

Dino,

Thats why I don't use Time charts. I want to catch the move with volume or price action. I wish I had traded the afternoon, but my system caught it. I only had about a minute and a half to catch it after the short.

Method,

My system is very mechanical. There is the 10% art, in adjusting the entries or stops, but I have a set of rules in my trade plan that can filters out some trades. However, I stick to those rules, which makes it mechanical. If I find that, a particular trade is not working out I can change the plan and add a filter, say taking trades against the trend or not taking re-entry trades. Is that as clear as mud:)

Dino,

I fogot to ask, what time do you trade CL. Just the mornings, all day or the afternoons?

 

I normally only trade pit hours and sometimes pre-market if things are setup up well with S/R levels. I prefer to only trade the first 3 hours of pit but it changes.

Dino,

Today was great. I was talking to someone who had backtested and studied Crude and he said that on Tuesday 9am-10am was the best time to trade. I think 70% win rate. I missed the first trade as I got ready to trade a little late. I was back from Apple with my new I phone 4. The next trade I adjusted below the swing low so I only got 13 cents and then the last trade hit full 18 cent target. I skipped the second long as the adjustment above the tend line was more than 4 cents.

That would depend on your trade setup. You appear to have many things on your chart but not sure what to make of it, how you are entering, and where your entries and exits are.

Dino,

I will attach a blown up chart with very few lines. There is a major trend line and a trail line. The pluses you see are the entries and the two sets of dots are the money management and full target. All of these numbers are in your data window. Very visual and easy to see targets, stops and entry. If you want I will do a video recap of a day. I hope this helps.

Not a big fan of video. Simple chart annotation of why you entered and exited and how you used your indicators would be fine.

talk about Drunk trading, I have been away for a while and looked at Crude today and it suddenly seems to be a lot less liquid than normal.

In terms of it regularly moved up or down ten cents from the last sale without having and trades. eg; last sale was 76.36, and it was offered 76.26

This seemed to happen a lot today.

It can certainly play havoc with automatic stops etc;

maybe crude is having a few blackout trades and its not remembering to trade at certain levels.:)

Sure,

As we can see from the chart above, we are looking for possible support in the cluster zone 73,74 - 74,10 (end of Wave 4). If the prices are supported in this area then we will find the wave 5 projections as possible upside targets.

 

Slds,

Okay I more clearly see what you are seeing. Now the question is how do you get in watching a daily chart. At what point in the (4) area will you buy?

Well, as we don’t know in advance whether or not a particular zone will hold, first I what to see if this area will stall the market and I then look for a (daily) bullish reversal bar.

 

(update: Crude sell off through the cluster zone and the price is now testing second cluster zone, Let´s see how it works!)

    • Date : 25th January 2022. Market update – January 25. A flight out of equities and into the safety of bonds was the opening theme yesterday – Could we see this repeated? US futures are under pressure once again, alongside a broad sell off across Asian equity markets. Tensions over the Ukraine, virus developments in China and the prospect of reduced central bank support all continued to weigh on sentiment overnight. The rise in Omicron cases ahead of the Lunar New Year holidays and of course the Olympic Games is adding to nervousness over slowing growth.   Australia’s inflation rate came in higher than expected, which added to growing conviction that the RBA will end its quantitative easing program at the February 1 meeting. Singapore surprised with a move to tighten policy outside of a scheduled review USD (USDIndex 95.90) saw a pullback after breaching 96.11. Treasury rates dove lower with a strongly bid 2-year sale extending the slide. The just auctioned 2-year rate dropped 7 bps to hit 0.970%. Equities – Hang Seng and CEI 200 expected to drop more than -1.8% today. The Nikkei closed with a loss of -1.7%, the ASX plunged -2.5% after the hot inflation report. Yesterday, USA100 crashed -4.9%, with the broader indexes over -3% lower before hitting bottom and paring losses. But a late buy the dip rally saw the USA100 rally 0.63%, with the USA500 and USA30 up 0.29%. USOil – back to $82.00 territory, – recovering some of yesterday’s losses, as growing tension in Eastern Europe and the Middle East fuelled concerns over possible supply disruptions. Lower US oil inventories are also providing support. Gold – held on to gains at $1841 as investors sought safety. Bitcoin steadied to $35,000 handle. FX markets – The Yen was supported as risk aversion picked up and USDJPY dropped to 113.66. EURUSD at 1.1306 & Cable below 1.3500. European Open – European stock futures are signalling a bounce back from yesterday’s sell off, with the GER40 and UK100 currently posting gains of 1.1% and 0.8% respectively. EGB yields are set to rise today, as stock markets bounce back from yesterday’s sell off. The German 10-year Bund yield is up 1.4 bp at -0.097% in early trade, the French 10-year up 1.3 bp, both underperforming versus Treasuries, which have moved higher overnight, as Asian stock markets sold off. Today – The FOMC meeting starts today, with an announcement due tomorrow, ahead of the ECB and BoE meetings in February. Geopolitical risks will remain in focus today, while the data calendar highlights are the German Ifo readings and the UK CBI manufacturing survey.
