Real Time Crude Oil Trade Alerts, How Time-Cycles Work – Crude Oil Day-Trading Strategies April 22, 2020.

Daytrading crude oil is not easy, having an edge helps. Time cycles are an edge and algorithmic models also help considerably.

Below is a documented real-time oil trade I took earlier this morning – alerting the trade, charting and guidance to our oil trading room members with a series of trade alerts.

The actual oil trade alerts, oil trading room discussion, guidance and charting is below.

The charting includes our EPIC v3 Machine Trading 30 minute algorithmic model and the 1 minute daytrading chart model that our software uses.

In this instance this was a day trade intended to develop in to an intra-week swing trade.

This trading set-up and the strategy itself is in play live right now.

Oil traders may find this interesting for Wednesday April 22,2020 trade.

See below.

30 min quad, hoping to get turn up here

If I actually get my way here I will trim 25% at 11.39, 11.62, 11.87 and have stop just above entry hoping the 25% remaining gets the turn up for more.
There, got my profit trims and holding 25% of position with stops above entry #oiltradealerts That worked well.

Review of my Chat Room Stock Day Trades, Algorithm Charting Calls and Alerts for Thursday Dec 15 – $UWT, $CBIO, $PIR, $SPY, $VIX, $GLD, $GDX, $USDJPY, $DXY, $USOIL, $WTIC, $NG_F, $UGAZ and more.


Time stamped entries (in permanent archive) copied to this blog in italics (below) are direct live log chat from chat trade room as they occurred (random chat from myself not applicable or other misc chat deleted). Chat trade room is also video recorded daily for trade archive.

In addition to chat, this trade-room has live voice broadcast (that covers in detail what indicators I am looking for in and out off each trade) and has live chart screen sharing right from my monitor to the room with all indicators I am looking at.


Notice: There is a new feature blog post at this link, “Why our Stock Algorithms are Different than Most“. If you are using our algorithms or charting it is a must read.

Notice: We are testing fault settings for multiple trading rooms in 2017 (main room, momentum, options, swing, commodities, etc). We can have groups in different rooms all seeing same screen and announcements / broadcast – if you’re moved don’t sweat it – it won’t affect your experience.

Overview Perspective & Review of Chat Room, Algo Calls, Trades and Alerts:

From my post market report Monday and follow-ups since,

Well, we have Fed talk Wednesday so yes the market may oompff a bit – but I expect it to run again until near Christmas or even closer to Preident Elect Donald Trump’s power transition.

I followed up with a warning in the member’s premarket with specific area of challenge in $SPY chart at 227.80.

Price action on $SPY struggled with that area all day and remained a challenge overnight, Wed Fed day challenged price action and overnght it is still struggling BUT THE CHART IS NOT BROKE and until otherwise our algo predicts are in play (new reports processing and available within a day or three).

$SPY Struggling with resistance overnight our algo alerted as resistance prior to Fed meeting. $ES_F $SPXS $SPXL S&P 500

So that again leaves our inaugural algo EPIC!

From yesterday:

Epic the Oil Algo calls price and time for every Tuesday at 4:30, Wednesday at 10:30 and Friday at 1:00 (and much more than those calls) the week prior in his newsletter oil reports the week prior so that traders can plan their trades etc. Anyway… the Tuesday at 4:30 price and time target zone was hit yet once again! He’s firing at 93.3% call win rate (all published in advance like all over our algos).


So were weren’t sure which target was going to hit – funny thing is primary target hit right to the cent at the second of the call and the secondary target hit about 2 seconds later right to the exact cent also. What a day for EPIC. Below is a shot of when price was on its way to targets and above is price of crude hitting both called targets within seconds of each other.

Targets for next week Tuesday 4:30 PM, Wednesday 10:30 AM and Friday 1:00 PM will be calculated by EPIC the Oil Algo and sent to members this weekend!

Friday 1:00 target for this week on deck!

My Personal Trades:

I only added to my long position in my swing account on $UWT and held overnight. There was an awesome set up (our code word for it in the lab is “right ear sidewinder” AND WOW DID IT PLAY OUT EXACTLY AS WE SAID IT WOULD to the second all the way through the trade. I will try and find time to a do a detailed video in this set-up this weekend – we hit that trade set-up at least 95% of the time and the price spike is violent so it is an awesome crude oil instrument related trade. Normally I would have sold right at the top of the spike (because of course knowing where that is in advance is key). But I am loading crude oil related plays in my swing account right now. Mid term play. Anyway, it was recorded live in detail in the trading room so I hope to get a video done on it.

Here’s generally what the oil related trade looked like on a chart along with some tweets and you will see in the log below of me alerting of the set-up and when it was complete (the details are more important and that is why I need to do the video, that set-up can be used over and over with oil related trade on intra-day trading with near 100% accuracy).

The alert process on Twitter (room transcript below and video coming from live trading session)

$UWT is a long crude ETN day trading instrument that allows you to get magnified gains if you are on right side of the trade. Not for beginners.

I was confident because I had confirmation in the trading action that I was now again trading with the machines – makes it REALLY PREDICTABLE – to the second – watch the video – literally to the second. And that $USD/JPY from today – same thing – exactly to the cent to the second knowing in advance because when the machines are in they are in, in a way humans are not.

I alerted that there were large blocks trading in $USO – further confirmation.

I alerted prior to spike that I did accept tips (you never know a guy might get some love) – THEN IT SPIKED HARD! And of course I was broadcasting every step for our crew in the room.

Alerted to exit the trade.

A kind man thanked me.


Primary Lessons That May Help You With Your Trades:

Watch the two videos we’ll do on the oil trade and the USDJPY trade when ready.

Again, Mathew would have a book full of lessons with his trades lately (lots for folks to learn there) so it will be nice to have him on audio broadcasting in the room and I look forward to his watch lists and blog posts.

Looking Forward:

Now we are waiting for price action for our six algos to confirm targets etc and we’ll trade the other side of this inflection. IT IS GOING TO BE NUTS! Watch the algos on this inflection trade!

10:26 am OILKING K : Oil looks good yet IMO Mat
10:26 am Mathew Waterfall : Agreed. I don’t expect a downdraft in OIL but $XOM is always a bit of a proxy for OIL so you have to take that into consideration
10:27 am Curtis M : true that
10:36 am Mathew Waterfall : Out rest of my dec23 $IWM 138.5c’s. .62 from .32. Think it goes higher but looking for a breather and will reload. If not $XOM will have to carry me home

02:09 pm OILKING K : what a cool play exactly like you said it would play too crazy neet
02:10 pm Dani M : Watching netflox again $NFLX
02:13 pm Darni P : Serious Mathew and Curtis best learning day and I have trade for 11 years. Looking forward to tomorrow. And Matts blog. I was thinking %DRYS for close thooughts?
02:20 pm OILKING K : Long $DRYS small
02:20 pm Mathew Waterfall : Glad you learned a few things today. Never stop learning
02:21 pm Mathew Waterfall : $drys looks ok. It couldnm’t get above 4.75 and has a recent low at 4.4 to play against so not a great r/r set up IMO
02:23 pm Curtis M : pure momo play
02:34 pm Curtis M : $KALV on scan
02:37 pm Curtis M : Just ran all the background on $KALV decent outfit guys
02:40 pm Mathew Waterfall : $DFIN working on a breakout for a swing
02:43 pm Curtis M : $CBIO blocks
02:48 pm Curtis M : $DRYS looking jiggy
02:55 pm Curtis M : $DCIX pop
03:00 pm Mathew Waterfall : $QHC HOD into the close here
03:03 pm Mathew Waterfall : Volume is lackluster but the daily candle will be a beauty. I’ll watch for continuation tomorrow
03:03 pm Curtis M : yup
03:04 pm Mathew Waterfall : And firmly into a gap that closes around 9.75 so a good candle to play against. Long over stop at LOD or around $7
03:14 pm Curtis M : So with this snap back $DRYS NHOD sqeeze I would ratchet stops at 5
03:16 pm Curtis M : If you get thru 5 your next res is 5.30 – 5.40
03:22 pm Curtis M : $CBIO 110% is a bit much but the way ths market is 300% may happen tomorrow
03:23 pm Mathew Waterfall : $AKAO says it can keep going lol
03:23 pm Curtis M : $DRYS just entered warp
03:26 pm Tyler H : I am out on $DRYS 40 cent winner
03:27 pm Darni P : ME TOO! thanks curt
03:27 pm Curtis M : I just alerted I didn’t play wish I did
03:27 pm Curtis M : risky stuff
03:35 pm MarketMaven M : $DRYS surprises me all the time. I wouldn’t hold it.
03:35 pm Mathew Waterfall : Debating $ORCL next week lottos for earnings. One of my favorite plays. recent strength with a sell off into the close right before earnings. ~1.50 move expected. Eyeing next week 43s but will likely just watch
03:37 pm Michael P : need to learn your moves mathew
03:37 pm Michael P : i will read your post
03:38 pm Dani M : see you tomorrow gyz!
03:39 pm Mathew Waterfall : I’ll work on it this weekend. It will have some technical stuff in there but be a decent primer for options with a slant towards lottos
03:39 pm Mathew Waterfall : $DFIN and $QHC looking strong into close. close eye on both$ON rallying to finish the day as well
03:40 pm Curtis M : All look good on that list
03:44 pm Mathew Waterfall : Rolling half of my $ON jan 13’s to 14’s for .36 credit. Great way to take some profits and keep the trade on. This will move the effective cost of those 14’s to .16 a piece. Keeping the other half of the 13’s and will outright sell those in coming days
03:45 pm Mathew Waterfall : You could also sell against the 13’s to creat a spread if you wanted or straight sell to lock gains but I think this goes higher as my previously mentioned target is 14 if the market cooperates
03:46 pm Mathew Waterfall : I promise, on of these days I will also learn to type. Editing my blog post this weekend will take longer than writing it I’m sure
03:46 pm Mathew Waterfall : *one see lol
03:47 pm Curtis M : lol
03:50 pm Mathew Waterfall : $AKS and $CLF pushing to close at HOD as well. in $XOM could join that would be very constructive
03:50 pm John M : Like $CLF
03:53 pm Mathew Waterfall : Same here John. 9.62 is an important level. Now that we’re over that I’m looking for a move back to the highs
03:53 pm Curtis M : $CLF makes sense
03:53 pm DaytradeX X : Im out good nite!!!
03:54 pm Joel O : in the morning peeps bye
03:54 pm Mathew Waterfall : $CLF was 121 in 08. Crazy
03:55 pm Darni P : YES TO $CLF – Catchya tmrw
03:57 pm Curtis M : Great day guys and gals thanks for the support!
03:57 pm Mathew Waterfall : See ya in the AM guys and gals
03:58 pm Carol B : see ya mat
03:58 pm Jack D : peace
04:01 pm Curtis M : out

My Stock Trading Plan for Friday November 18, 2016 in Chatroom.

Welcome to the Friday Wall Street trading session!

Algo work – As of this Monday our new equipment will be up and running full steam so I’ve scheduled next week in the room (when market is quiet) for algo work – we’re running the algo updates now for $SPY, $USOIL $WTI, $VIX, $DXY, $GOLD, $SILVER – lots of updates coming for next week!

Market Outlook

The world markets in my opinion are at an inflection point. Sure the S&P 500 may go to all time highs and the US Dollar may really rocket and the various indices and international markets such as Japan will all fly high and even the metals will get curb-stomped. All of that I’ve been tweeting for months anyway in advance – so no surprise. The question is how to navigate it, trade the pull-backs and then really PROFIT on the other side of the inflection.

$GOLD and $SILVER are almost at our algorithm’s price targets – so I will be watching these closely. Japan’s stock market is in break-out mode with currency etc. S&P 500 $SPY is in mode to break new all time highs (I called prior to election), $VIX looks like it will be much lower (per our calls), $DXY US Dollar is in break-out mode (our algorithm nailed that with calls that extend back months ago) and $USOIL $WTI is sitting a new up range but not in break out (I am sure it is waiting for meetings to conclude).

I will say that our algorithm calls for Crude Oil, the US Dollar, S&P 500, Gold and Silver all took significant heat at the time they were made over the last few months. Interesting times – but our algorithms were right in every scenario – so that’s very positive, as such we’re releasing the initial charting of the algorithms over the next week.

On the small cap equity side…. shippers have run their course it seems and China low float issues got jiggy yesterday as I expected they would. This play book isn’t new. Low float oil could be next.

On the ETF / ETN side $UWTI $DWTI will be de-listed soon… so I will be looking to other instruments to trade crude oil. More to come on that soon.

So my plan in general is to watch for pull-backs and turns as the inflection points hit outside ranges. More detail below.

Momentum Stocks (Market Open and Intra-Day)

I do trade morning momo stocks (at times), but I do avoid risk. Just prior to open and shortly after open I post momentum stocks to the trade chat room (and Twitter if I have time).

The momentum stocks (from previous days and morning trade) I continue to watch through the day for indicators that allow a trade.

Stay tuned in Stock Chat Room for more pre-market stocks on watch.

Regular Trades:

S & P 500: $SPY ($SPXL, $SPXS)

My bias is still to all time highs, I will be looking for long positions on pull-backs. I see a run in Gold, miners and Silver soon then a pull back and then a big run.

Volatility: $VIX ($TVIX, $UVXY, $XIV)

I expect volatility at market inflection points and then continue to get crushed and I will likely follow that trend with $TVIX $UVXY $XIV buys at range pivots / pending price action, volume and other geo events.

Currencies Etc: $DXY US Dollar Index ($UUP US Dollar Bull, $UDN British Pound, $USD/JPY, $FXY Japanese Yen Trust, $CNY China, $TZA, $SMK / $EWW Mexico Capped ETF)

The US Dollar continues its rally so I’m looking at $UUP on pull-backs. Also looking at how the $USD/JPY relates to possible long in Japan with $DBJP.

I am also watching the Peso and Trump’s messaging… also watching $FXY and $USD/$JPY for clues with Gold and Miner’s.

Gold: $GLD ($UGLD, $DGLD). Miners: $GDX ($NUGT, $DUST, $JDST, $JNUG)

For me Gold and Silver is going to be the big story soon. It should start to get some lift if only for a short time and that process may go on for a while – so I will snipe as that occurs. I have started to chew around the edges with tight trades but nothing yet. The idea is to get on the winning side of the reverse when it occurs. Watching $USD/$JPY close and $DXY and $FXY for clues on Gold and miners movements.


$GOLD 530 AM EST Nov 18, 2016

Other equities I like for Gold Trade: $AUMN (penny stock)

Silver: $SLV ($USLV, $DSLV)

As with Gold I’m awaiting buy trigger on Silver – here again I will chew around the edges sniping until the reverse trend occurs.


$SILVER 548 AM November 18, 2016

Other equities I like for Silver trade: $AUMN (penny stock)


First things first, $UWTI $DWTI are being de-listed (on Dec 9 I think?), anyway, that will cause me to choose a new instrument. I liked the idea of the 3x leveraged – I have a sneaking suspicion someone else will fill the void in short order anyway – but in meantime I’ll find other instruments. I really think the big story soon is going to be Gold and Silver anyway – so my bias is turning in that direction for daytrades anyway – but I’ll always trade oil.

In the short term we do have to be ready for rumors or even real news out of the oil meetings so I’m ready for that.

Other Equities I like for Oil or Energy Trade: Tape / Chart – $ETE, $RIG. High Short Interest – $CRC, $EPE, $WLL, $RES, $JONE, $AREX, $REN, $CLR, $HP, $ATW, $SGY. Fundamentals: $EOG, Pipelines – $XLE: $HEP, $SXE, $KMI, $DPM, $TGS, $ENB, $EEP, $PTRC, $HGT

Natural Gas: ($UGAZ, $DGAZ)

Natural gas… I’m not comfortable with at this time… I want a trade with at least 4 to 1 probability.. at least thats the plan – and with natural gas it seems hard to get better than 50 50 – but we’ll see.

Other Sectors, Indices, International Etc:

Watching $RWM Russell 2000 Short

Watching $SPY Long to All Time Highs

Watching Japan Stocks $DPJP

Watching Aluminum Long $FOIL


Free scanners to find momentum stocks that you can easily review charts of for indicators that bring probability of your trade being successful up considerably. These are not useful for first 30 minute market open super-nova type plays (you need a good momentum scanner for the first 30 mins of trade)… but are very useful for intra day scalping (start with trending stocks and then look at indicators intra for simple set-ups – study scan study scan study scan).
