US OIL

Recommended Posts

Hope everyone else had better luck with this trade, placed a LONG order on opening price at around 60USD, but the gap up opened me at 69.10, rised but not enough to hit my limit and then the market obviously recoiled and closed me out at 66.06 :(

yes the hazards of trying to second guess and front run the market, Brent put in a 1 minute candle of over $10, I think I read that a jump that size has not been seen for near 30 years.

Look at how nicely U.S. oil bounces off the Fibs on a weekly chart.  It's a thing of beauty.

For those that care, the Saudi energy minister is scheduled to hold a press conference later today to provide details on the plant. This will be the first formal statement.

Sources are reporting that the damage was worse than initial suspected, and the expectation is that half of the lost production will remain offline for weeks to months.

Using the guidance provided by Goldman and shared by @Caseynotes, we could potentially be seeing $70 - $75.

Oil is rising again on reports that Aramco have asked Iraq for 20mil barrels of crude and have asked China to accept delivery of a heavier grade than ordered.

So oil is going up and down and up and down.

How does one actually trade it and make any money?

😕

 it's useful to firstly have a clear idea of the direction of a market, secondly it's a case of finding a potential target, and then thirdly (last) you would look for a good entry point if one presents.

trade selection needs to be done in that order,

if unsure of direction look no further, 

if direction is clear is there an obvious target? (us oil for example has just been stopped at a prior high) if not, look no further,

if direction is clear and a target is obvious is there a good entry point - a pullback that's turned to continue the trend or a breakout.

it needs to be done in that order not the other way round, many new traders just jump in on a breakout or even worse just on FOMO, then realise there no real clear direction or target, which means price isn't actually going anywhere with purpose but is just meandering.

Difficult to call, oil looks trapped in a consolidation range since 17th Sept, tried to break down today with the indices but recovered as the indices found support and headed back to the daily pivot after the US market open.

    • I think when it comes to trading people underestimate 'gut' instincts and experience monitoring price action the behaviour of any asset you are tracking and following.  As you can see from my previous post I had an expectation that Ripple and Stella would play catch and increase sharply in price and Stellar has delivered. I am still expecting Ripple to do so the same but I am led to believe (I could be wrong) that the reason why these Crypto's do not all move together at exactly the same time is because large Crypto traders move from one Crypto to the other enticing other traders whilst they exit and move on to the next. This 'rinse and repeat' cycle is executed to aid profit maximisation whilst utilising their trading capital and increasing trading capital efficiency. 
    • I think Litecoin is going to follow Bitcoin's lead on this current Crypto rally we are seeing.  Litecoin requires less margin requirements on IG's platform to trade than Bitcoin so I do see some of the 'alt coins' like Litecoin being more attractive to smaller traders to trade.  In fact I think Litecoin is the cheapest in terms of margin requirements to trade on IG out of all the Crypto's.   
    • Bitcoin Cash has hit $386.20 overnight and is now clearly on course to hit that psychological $400 price area. We are seeing a bullish and sharp breakout. The corrections along the way will be just as sharp so stop loss management will be vitally important.  If Bitcoin Cash can break $400 to $500 price area then we could see a longer term trend change in play. For me it will have to break around the $635 to $645 price area for that to be confirmed on the 'daily' but it is heading in that direction for the medium term.
