Newbie to oil and sources of information needed

Hi,

I am one of the unfortunate to go long on oil in the middle of the OPEC+ row and the start of the COVID pandemic. Needles to say I paid some university fees and, to honest, still paying those fees.

It has become better. Looking at some candle patterns I managed to trade myself out of most of my loses. However. Last week I took my biggest knock. I was long for a period of time with about 6x0.25 contract at various entry levels. The market turned. I saw some good trend reversal patterns just fly buy. Nothing stopped the trend. Its clear that patterns work but at this moment, sentiment seems to drive. And I have to say, the sentiment is mostly nonsensical. Up trend on possibility of vaccine then a reversal because it didnt work out but when the pandemic seems to come back the price still rises. Man, loony bin seems to be in the near future.

I like a challenge which is exactly why I haven't nursed my wounds and left this behind:-)

Digging I have found very little sources of information to supplement my technical analysis. I was wondering if there is anyone out there that could help me with some places where i can get key metrics that are as current as possible. I am using ForexFactory for the basics like housing stats etc and also looking at the EIA at their belated news on stocks etc. Good for Brent not so much for Crude. What i am looking for is a good feed (like a Twitter handle), a good source of data for purchases (man i wish there is something like Forex purchases where you can see up to date purchases) and also stockpile data for countries around the world as current as possible.

Please can you help?

Thanks

    • Does anybody know the BIL (SPDR Bloomberg 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF) equivalent with a GBP currency hedge? I want the interest yield but I don't want the currency risk.
    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
    • Investing in stocks can be a great way to grow your wealth over time. However, there are different approaches that investors can take when choosing which stocks to buy. Two of the most popular approaches are growth investing and value investing. Growth Investing Growth investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are expected to grow at a faster rate than the overall market. These companies are often in industries that are growing quickly, such as technology or healthcare. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies will be able to generate higher profits in the future, which will lead to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of growth investing is that it can potentially provide higher returns than the overall market. However, it is also riskier than other investment strategies, as these companies often have higher valuations and more volatile stock prices. Value Investing Value investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are undervalued by the market. These companies may be in industries that are out of favour or have recently experienced challenges, but they have strong fundamentals and a history of profitability. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies are undervalued and that their true value will be recognized in the future, leading to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of value investing is that it can potentially provide lower risk than growth investing. However, it may also provide lower returns in the long run, as these companies may not have the same growth potential as companies in the growth investing category. Comparing Growth and Value Investing Growth and value investing are two different approaches to stock investing, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Growth investing can potentially provide higher returns but is riskier, while value investing can provide lower risk but potentially lower returns. An investor may choose one approach or a combination of both. A portfolio that contains a mix of growth and value stocks can provide a balance of potential returns and risk. Conclusion Both growth investing and value investing can be effective ways to invest in stocks. The key is to understand the potential risks and rewards of each approach and to choose the one that aligns with your investment goals and risk tolerance. Analyst Peter Mathers TradingLounge™
