A Lesson in Trading Oil
A $100K Trade Review Lesson
If you’ve read this blog, watched the YouTube channel or are a subscriber then you’ve heard me discuss inflections.
The idea of technical analysis is suspect, at least on surface level.
Too many people “do it wrong” - don’t use context and usually just mess it up entirely. So it tends to get a bad wrap. It doesn’t bother me much because it works and has worked in my career.
Sure, there are limitations to where you can use it - you can’t really use it on stocks with low float, pumps etc.
But on stock indices and select commodities it adds to major points of reference.
The way I use it is through levels/zones and reading the high-time frames.
Those things combined create ‘areas of interest’ on the chart where price may turn.
I care about spots where price will turn dramatically - inflections.
No indicators, no trend lines, no elliot wave nonsense.
Inflections like this on oil where about $100K was cleared on a single move - BIG MOVES, INFLECTIONS.
If you watch this - you’ll be able to pick up some things.
Sure, at the end, I am SCALPING AROUND, but that’s because of TWO THINGS:
I already had a huge P&L for the day/week
The levels/area there were not BIG INFLECTIONS it was light scalp time.
But there is CONTEXT to this. Market structure and price action are pointless without context.
And I think that is where most amateur traders get it wrong.
The don’t consider the:
Time of day
Context of the market at large
High time frames
What the market did the day before
So when you combine both - price action and context you become deadly.
I hope this video above and this post helps.
