Oil! Bloody Oil!

Recommended Posts

It's nerve jangling stuff this Bull market.  I don't like trading Oil much but it seems that every market is Oil at present...


I saw this article on the BBC,  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-36092229


Seems Saudi, poor lambs, need a loan because of the low oil price.  There is a theory doing the rounds, I don't know if you have seen it, that the Saudi's and other sovereign wealth funds that are largely oil supported will have to start selling off assets to pay for their inflated social system.  If and when this happens they are likely to start with the most liquid and highest value assets and that means stock portfolios...


May it come sooner rather than later...

better to use oil options , it can be very volatile  and chaotic 


find a set and forget strategy


it is fine ,when it is one side , but humans can not handle chaos

    • Volume profile, depth of market, orderbook, VWAP, VPVR, VPSV... all the basic things needed which for some reason are disabled.. seems odd that you don't want your clients to see this information? Even FXCM, OANDA, Pepperstone, ICmarkets, FXPRO & many more not listed all allow you to see this and have access to this vital information. ProRealTime v11.. It's about 2 years overdue now... frustrating not only having out of date features but more so when trying to back test things as it's limited on v10.3 to a maximum of 100k units.. that means with every day passing, I lose a day's worth of data.. PRT v11 allows you to have 1m unit backtest.. Also.. Custom, multiple take profits.. allow me to set a desired amount, for example.. ** points or **% at 10 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 20 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 30 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 40 pips away from entry.. Have a look at cTrader.. they do a perfect example of this, in advanced take profit section.
