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.

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.

    • yes, with Renko you are changing from time based charts to price based and so remove a lot of noise and smooth out  the price action hopefully giving a clearer picture.
    • The twitter bears are taking a lot of flak at the mo and with good cause, especially the likes of Edgeye and Zerohedge who called a recession in 2015 and were wrong so they just repeat the call every year since in the expectation of being right eventually. Amusingly enough many traders have build this psychology into their trading plan, imagine anyone trying to continually short a bull market for 5 straight years, and yet as I've pointed out for years using the sentiment data of IG clients short/long positions that's exactly what many have been trying to do. Here's the thing, you don't need to guess, a chart will tell you if it's bearish. As Chris in the podcast above says, a market making new all time highs just can't be anymore BULLISH, there is only one way to go. So if the chart lines up with the macro and both are clearly bullish 'buy high and sell higher'. Do yourself a favour and spend the 50 minutes to listen to the podcast, you will learn something.  
    • Final hours of trading put in some bearish candles that may be a precursor to a period of bearish retrace if the 1H channel is broken on Monday.  If it does I will be expecting an A-B-C form retrace that may retest several support levels before a resumption of the long term Bull.  This is an opportunity to buy in lower, but patient is needed, it may take some time to evolve.  I have a cheeky Short in place...
