Hi Mike,

Where can one get the 'Paint Bar' indicator you are using?

Thx

Here you are, it's very simple - just based on Closes.

Given its lack of liquidity and participants can one make a good case for support and resistance in CL? I think not, but am interested in hearing from others who agree or disagree.

I don't know how you determine liquidity but CL is one of the most liquid futures.

You are ahead of the curve by a few days I am in the process of re-doing all the downloads, we're implementing a new Download System. That link is in limbo until we're live on the new system, check back in a few days.

Mike,

Have you not traded CL since July? I don't see posts in your journal, man. All kidding aside, do you keep a journal on YOUR forum? One reason why I'm asking is because you had mentioned in your spread sheet you have entry method. I'm wondering how many entry methods you have because i thought from the price action thread you enter on the beak of a prior swing.

Chats or videos would be fine.

David

LOL, we've been through this before, but the bottom line is I don't journal my trades on the forum. I do track every trade of mine off-line, you can be sure.

I will answer the rest of your question in my Advice thread, as I don't post to this thread anymore as you can see.

Hi Big Mike,

First of all thanks for such a nice Blog. I am trading CL for a while and the strategy I have is closer to what you are doing. Believe me it is a coincident that I am using EOT's indicators too.
But I am using [B][COLOR=#0000ff]AaTripleDszl[/COLOR][/B] and AaTripleCCI to enter the market in trend direction. I noticed the Diamond indicator you use in your chart is very better that what I use. in your post you are saying, you kindly like to help us to manipulate that indicator to look like yours. I don't have The Bollinger Bands from BWT but I was wondering if you kindly can help me to adjust it I will go ahead and purchase it from BWT? or if you now any alternative free indicator as you are mentioning in you post I would love to know that.
I appreciate your kind help and wish you all the best and luck.

Masoud

Here is a video blog about trading CL. I also share my usual opinions on multiple time frames and indicators/simplicity, money management, etc.

Play the VLC media player if you have any issues after unzipping, just like all my videos in the Downloads section.

I'll try to keep this journal updated with CL thoughts and trades.

Small chart: 89 volume
Medium chart: 6 range
Large chart: 12 range

I've attached a screen shot but the main point of this post is in the video not the screen shot.

Mike

I know nothing about the indicators Aa* you mentioned. As for this method in this thread, it is very old and not something I have looked at in a long time. Panel 2 indicator is OBV Diver it would seem. I would not recommend purchasing Blue Wave.

Hi,

How can I access the Video in the original post? When I click on it, it says content no longer there.

Thanks.
