Lot's of strength in CL again today. I wish I had stayed in the big 9:45 am est 150+ tick move...It stayed in my Black spine the whole way. My time and sales told me there was a lot of big orders coming in. I have it set to show orders only over 10 contracts and I saw big one's coming in for most of this morning. That should have given me the clue to stay in the moves longer. I still had a great day, but it could have been phenomenal.

Thanks. I think I get better results now ..watching a couple of instruments. When I just watch oil, I can get tempted into a lot of choppy, spiky moves on those days where the price action is chaotic. Some days TF makes some nice moves. So when I watch them, I pick for any particular moment which one is making a strong surging move..and jump into that. That way I'm only taking the absolute best trades in terms of momentum, speed and strength. Then it's a matter of adjusting how tight or loose my trail is.

Lancelotttrader: I trade several different futures including currencies, indexes, crude and natural gas. This process is not for everyone, but I have found watching several different groups of symbols, allows me to pick/choose which symbol's price action matches my trading style at any given time. Currencies moved better during the summer and lately indexes are trending more... and of course crude and natural gas seem to run to their own beat.

cheers

I myself have recently converted back to this type of trading tactic to adapt to the low volatility trading conditions in Emini TF futures. Just need some extra monitors or bigger monitors. Simply, instead of just concentrating on Emini TF futures...I now trade Oil CL futures, EuroFX 6E futures during periods when Emini TF usually doesn't produce trade opportunities.

A little extra work but worth it by the end of day. Trading different trading instruments also has the benefit of helping with that "market context" and seeing the "big picture" that we sometimes get confused about when we get too focus on one type of price action.

Never get married to a specific trading instrument when there are better trade opportunities elsewhere because to goal is to be profitable.

wrbtrader.... couldn't agree more on the market context and big picture. It also prolongs the "sweet spot" part of the trading day for each group. For example, I tend to trade currency futures the first 2 hours after the futures open, then trade index futuress for 1-2 hours after the stock market open.... and as always trade crude/natural gas whenever they move.

cheers
