How to Day Trade the 1 Minute Oil Chart Using the 200 MA for Support and Symmetry for Resistance.

A Simple Step by Step Intra Day Trading Guide from our Oil Trading Room and Alerts Service.

Below are my top trading rules (steps I take in my strategy) when daytrading crude oil on the one minute time-frame. It has worked for me over the years and I am sure you will find it a highly profitable way to day-trade oil.

1. The Price Trend of Trade is Your Friend.

  • If you are going to day trade oil long be sure oil is in a rally. In this case oil has been rallying for a number of days and today oil price continued to rally. In this instance, the trend is on your side so it is obvious that your highest probability day trades scalping crude oil futures will be long buy entries.
  • Today’s News – Stock market live updates: Dow up 400, oil rallies 18%, Norwegian dives 18%   

2. Price Dropping in to The 200 MA on One Minute Oil Chart.

  • Chart from the Oil Trading Room and Alerts feed shows the set-up intra day for the 200 MA scalp, “On the 1 minute time frame 25.15 200 MA is attractive test for a crude oil day trade pop up scalp – trading 25.68. #oiltradealerts” The white arrow on the chart points to the 200 MA on the 1 minute time-frame (200 MA in pink).

Technical indicators or signals really help retrieve more profit in each trade and also help with your winning percentage of trades.

There are many other signals that you can use for any oil day trade, including the trade outlined in this article. Some of the other indicators or trade signals include order flow, time of day, resistance and support on larger time frames such as the 5 minute, 15 minute or 30 minute chart time-frames and many more.

The price extensions in this article are part of a proprietary one minute oil trading grid model that our machine trading uses. There are many ways to set your price targets, some use conventional charting methods and some algorithmic (or proprietary models as in this instance).

Hopefully this tutorial on using the one minute oil chart 200 MA as a signal for day trading (scalping) trades has helped. It is an intra-day strategy that has worked for me in my trading time and time again. 

You should find implementing this simple crude oil intra day trading strategy that your win rate and returns will excel.

Oh, and by the way, while I am finishing up writing this article oil is getting near the upper price target for this day trade and I just alerted the oil trading room and our alert subscribers to take profits. Nice Trade!

I am looking for crude oil trade to come off in price in to the lower channel support on the crude oil algorithm (EPIC the Crude Oil Algorithm), or as near as possible.

I am looking for a significant size in trade of crude oil long if I can get a price entry near the bottom of the channel (the main point of my trading plan).

Below is the crude oil charting from the Sunday oil algorithm report sent to members. The channel (orange up trending lines) corresponds with the charting discussed in the video.

Large liquidity in oil trade is leaning in to the long side oil trade now.

There is even talk of 100.00 crude oil possible now – the Market Watch article states;

Amid the fresh enthusiasm, some have even been talking about a return to $100-a-barrel oil.

Read the Bloomberg article here: Major Traders Are Talking About $100 Oil Again.

The video was recorded mid day on Tuesday and I was expecting price pressure in oil coming in to API petroleum reporting Tuesday 4:30.

As it turned out, price did have pressure shortly after this video was recorded in the oil trading room and the API report at 4:30 later in the day did show a build in crude oil stocks larger than traders expected.

In oil futures trade FX USOIL WTI is trading 71.99 off from 72.60 around the time when this video was recorded in the trading room but price has not achieved the lower channel support as of yet (9:15 EST Tuesday evening).

If I get the entry in oil that I am looking for I will stay in the swing trade for some time and I will day trade oil per the oil algorithm trading signals.

Intra-day oil is trading slightly divergent to the high side in the up trending channel on the algorithm model that was published for members in the weekly Sunday report, but that (divergent upside trade) will happen when trade is bullish.

I had expected price pressure in to upside crude oil price in to the swing trading range provided on the algorithm charting (horizontal gray resistance / pivot line).

Tuesday 4:30, Wednesday 10:30, Friday 1:00 price targets reviewed on the oil algorithm.

Trump has had some problem getting the price of oil to come down and it doesn’t look like that scenario is on his side geo politically. There is an article here that does provide a scenario for lower oil prices however.

Also reviewed on the video are the 30 minute candles for oil trade. I was looking for a possible intra-day short position.

Bottom line is that my trading plan for crude oil is a significant long side trade with hard stops and I will re-enter as needed to get my positioning.

Below is a screen shot of the oil trading room chat guidance from earlier today.

If you need more help getting on the winning side of your trades then I would seriously consider 3 hours of private coaching. Even the best traders in the world have a coach because a trading coach will keep your psychological game in check as it relates to following the trading of a rules based process. A trading coach is critical to success as a winning trader.

Best with it and let me know if you need anything.
