Summary Review – Answers For Questions Received About EPIC V3 Draw-Down in Oil Trading Room Today.

Please Note: There is an edit revision below that includes a question and answer session for Sept 5, 2019 that provides significantly more detail.

As the trading day progressed and we broadcast our trades in the live oil trading room today we received a number of questions by way of email and direct message. Below is an oil trading room review summary.

We did not have time to respond to the questions during the trading day as we were working with the machine trading software (coding).

Today the software had a larger than normal draw-down shorting against a rally in crude oil trade. Below is the daily profit and loss chart.

For September 4, 2019 Profit & Loss Daily -$1,205 YTD +$12,559 Projected $77,696 or 78% Per Annum. v3 Oil Machine Trade 100k Sample Account (v4 period excluded) #OOTT $CL_F $USOIL $WTI $USO #machinetrading #oiltradealerts

Profit Loss, Machine Trading, Crude Oil

For September 4, 2019 Profit & Loss Daily v3 Oil Machine Trade $CL_F $USOIL $WTI $USO

The sequence the software was triggering trades to was a new sequence. When a new sequence activates the first go-round is often a loss, albeit normally less than today’s.

On the second or third go-round you will find that the software will win and continue to win better each time or it simply will not re-engage that same sequence.

The draw-down amount will normally be less as I mentioned, however, draw-downs will occur.

Nevertheless, the EPIC v3 crude oil trading software is extremely stable for a number of reasons, below are some of those reasons.

  • If you look at the ROI trajectory for the software you will find that when draw-downs occur that the software will self-adjust its risk threshold to maintain the minimum trajectory.
  • The software catalogs its trading set-ups, some set-ups it near never loses, some rarely, some not so rare. The point is, the software is coded to self adjust its minimum achieved ROI trajectory (correct it) as needed. In other words, it is coded to correct its minimum achieved trajectory by way of risk-threshold. To be more clear, it will be sure it self adjusts (wins) and how it is coded to do that is to bias its trade executions to its more probable set-ups.
  • Its current ROI trajectory is between 80% – 90% approximately, you will see the software self-adjust its trade executions to more probable set-ups until that minimum trajectory is returned.
  • Each time the trajectory is returned to the minimum average it will engage higher risk to learn trade set-ups. This process will continue and repeat over and over again. Over time the trajectory should increase on average as a result.
  • The risk threshold of v3 vs v4 is much less aggressive (draw-downs and gains are considerably less volatile) and days like today will be few and far between because (as explained above) it will self-adjust back to the minimum ROI trajectory via the most probable trade set-ups of which it has some now that literally it very never loses if at all. It can rely on the catalog of those set-ups to adjust. 

I can’t stress enough that the v3 software is not anywhere near similar in aggressiveness to the v4 version. This version is coded to avoid volatility, avoid large draw downs, and self adjust its risk threshold via high probable set-ups to snapiback to its minimum ROI trajectory as needed. 

Watch the software over the next number of days and you will see it return to its minimum average trajectory and then you will see it take new sequence trade set-ups and the process will continue to repeat over and over.

If the software did not have trade set-ups (sequences) that it wins at near 100% of the time none of the above would apply.

Any questions about the detail of code architecture feel welcome to send us questions anytime so we can publish responses for our stakeholders to review as needed.

Below is an update. After the original blog post was released we had a few more questions come in that I would add answer to below. What I have done is copy and pasted the conversation below.

September 5 2019 Update: Oil Trading Room Review: Question and Answers EPIC V3 Software Protocol

[6:54 PM, 9/4/2019] Question: I still don’t understand that in some of the big moves the software fires opposite to the direction of the move but something we can talk about on Saturday
[7:22 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: easy answer
[7:22 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: if you look at the chart the price has come way off
[7:22 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: software had order flow right
[7:23 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: execution of sequence needs tweaking
[7:23 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: same as when it gets the bottoms in sell offs, it used to struggle with that
[7:23 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: as far as why it didn’t trigger with the rally….
[7:24 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: thats simple too
[7:24 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: order flow is random in a rally like that, it will near never trigger mid rally in rally’s induced by news, no predictable order flow data
[7:24 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: short covering and retail daytrader trade causes the majority of the rally, no structure
[7:25 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: so the key is it triggering on the predictable wins to maintain ROI trajectory and as time goes on slowly learning other set ups
[7:25 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: i should have put this in the original blog post report
[7:26 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: i will do an addendum / update report
[7:27 PM, 9/4/2019] Question: I understand why it would not fire in the big moves because of lack of structure and order flow
[7:27 PM, 9/4/2019] Question: I just don’t understand why when there is a big move down it is firing long and when there is a big move up it fires short
[7:27 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: we tried to code a trajectory trade sequence for rally’s on news but we couldn’t get the code, too random
[7:28 PM, 9/4/2019] Question: Yes that makes sense to me
[7:28 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: because its catching the end of the move to turn the other way, next in the code is to get it to hold some size through the reversal
[7:29 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: the essence of the development right there, step one is code the reversal step two code the middle of the move, the middle is much more complicated to code
[7:30 PM, 9/4/2019] Question: Ahhh okay
[7:31 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: the order-flow at the reversal is where the trading edge is…. seeing the order-flow pattern of the other machine liquidity on the IDENT program starting to turn for the reversal, thats why the machine trade software nails near 100% of the turns up in price on intraday trade after a sell off, but to get the sell-off you have to get the reversal like it was trying to do today and then you’re golden
[7:31 PM, 9/4/2019] Question: Okay yes I understand that now
[7:31 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: its all about being able to get the reversal first, thats where the predictability is
[7:32 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: once you have the sequence for the reversal then you can start on the middle core of the trade, we have the sell off reversal perfected and now we’re working on the middle of the move
[7:32 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: the reversal after a rally to the short side still needs work, they’re different (reversal at top and reversal at bottom intraday)
[7:34 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: without the reversal right its impossible to get the rest, the reversal is where you have to plant your trade, start your trade for high win rate probability, nothing else provides a high probability scenario that can be duplicated time after time
[7:34 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: hope that helps
[7:34 PM, 9/4/2019] Question: Yes I get that now
[7:34 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: good questions for the report update, doesn’t hurt to share
[7:35 PM, 9/4/2019] Question: You want to get the top of the rally
[7:35 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: what happens in the middle is too random so if you get the top of a rally or the bottom of a sell off for the reversal and get your size in place then you have the trend to make the next turn
[7:36 PM, 9/4/2019] Question: But what is telling the software it is at the top when it really isnt and so it keeps firing short when the rally has not ended. That’s what I wanted to understand
[7:36 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: its the bottoms and tops that have clear predictability, hence why we have the near 100% win rate on sell off reversals, but the rally tops are a different sequence that we’re working on
[7:37 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: it was firing in to the top today, it nailed the top of the rally, it was firing 56.12 to 56.50, and then it came off to 55.90, its the same as the sell off bottoms, it trades them the same way, same concept, different sequence
[7:38 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: that wasn’t the problem
[7:38 PM, 9/4/2019] Question: That makes sense. Because I remember you working on the bottoms of the sell off and now have that nailed
[7:38 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: the problem is the sequence that it uses to gain size at the top and hold for the sell off reversal after the rally is the challenge we were working on
[7:38 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: the sequence at tops is different than at bottoms
[7:39 PM, 9/4/2019] Question: Yes that makes sense to me
[7:39 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: we have the bottom sequence perfected for the turn up after the sell-off, in that scenario we are now working on the sizing so that it holds some in the reversal rally
[7:39 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: but the secret is this…
[7:40 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: the only way the code wins near 100% of the time, the only way that is possible is at the reversals, reversal of a rally or reversal of the sell off
[7:40 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: thats how the others that are winning have done it, we can see it in the order flow, its precise and repeatable over and over again
[7:41 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: the middle of the move isn’t that way, it is random
[7:41 PM, 9/4/2019] Question: Okay I understand much better now
[7:42 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: so if you have an ROI trajectory at say 85% and your code is nailing every bottom the only way to increase the ROI is to nail the tops or get your size better at bottoms for more profit in the move
[7:42 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: so slowly we’ll work on nailing the tops for reversals and slowly work on holding more size when we’ve nailed the bottom reversals to increase ROI
[7:43 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: when we lose as we develop those scenarios those trades won’t trigger (the software learning will stop) and the predictable set ups only will trigger to keep the 85% ROI at minimum (or whatever the ROI trajectory is at)
[7:44 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: we have more than just the bottom reversals after a sell off in the ammo, but i think you get my point
[7:44 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: there’s daytrading set ups it triggers to all the time, small wins intraday
[7:44 PM, 9/4/2019] Question: Makes sense
[7:45 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: its just that today was a mathematically very large rally to which you see a larger than average loss, thats why i know that scenario will be very few and far between, very rare
[7:46 PM, 9/4/2019] Question: Yes that was an unusually large move in price
[7:46 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: so its about risk management when it goes wrong and when it does the software / development team stopping the learning and software only trades what we know wins until trajectory of ROI is back in play (returned to its regular trajectory)
[7:46 PM, 9/4/2019] Answer: 3 days of trading and the previous ROI trajectory will be back at 85% – 90% and then as it learns the trajectory will turn up because the software now has more set-ups to trigger on that it wins consistently, at current level it is maxed out at about 90% ROI so it needs to add to its catalog of set-ups to increase ROI trajectory, the learning is where you will have short term draw-downs
[7:46 PM, 9/4/2019] Question: Yes that’s good

The Report Below Shows You Exactly How We Day Trade Crude Oil and Win Well Over 90% of Our Trades With EPIC V3.

The thing we have learned using the EPIC v3 Oil Trading Strategy (rule-set for daytrading crude oil) is that it is highly stable, predictable, maintains a high win rate and provides a low stress environment to achieve an excellent return on equity.

Below are the details from today’s trading session, hopefully this will help you improve your trading skill-set.

Included in this Article;

  • Live Oil Trading Room raw video footage (I alert our day trades by voice over microphone),
  • Technical Analysis (Charts) we used to establish the reversal area of trade in oil (most probable low of day price),
  • Oil Trade Alert private feed (Twitter) and Discord private oil trade chat room where we share alerts, guidance, charting and more.

The EPIC v3 system for day-trading crude oil by far provides one of the best oil day-trading system results you will find. We have subscribed to many oil trading rooms and alert services out there (most) and have researched the returns the best funds are obtaining. EPIC’s v3 protocol is by far (as of today’s date) maintaining the best oil day-trading win rate percentage and best ROI we can find.

If you study the system and implement it as intended you will win. 

You have to study the strategies, really know the methods, practice executing the trades and preferably be present in the oil trading room receiving guidance from us as you are trading or at minimum receiving the trade alerts via Discord and/or Twitter private member feed.

Private Member Discord Oil Trade Chat Server (used for alerts, charting, guidance, etc).

Below are screen capture images from the oil chat room server showing you what charts were shared with alert comments. The live oil trading room voice broadcast guidance provides our day-traders with significantly more strategy detail.

First the day-trades as they occurred today:

The trades you see below were executed because we knew that we were near the low of day and that a price reversal was very probable.

You will find that once we know the most probable area of trade on the day that is the low of day then we have a system of trading long in sequence on the 1 minute chart time frame using the other chart models as a guide also.

The five minute charting, 15 minute, 30 minute and 60 minute chart time-frames are all used.

Again, the video from the trading room footage will provide the most detail but the trade alerts, guidance and and charting revealed below will help you along some also.

The key is to not hold too much that you can’t correct your positioning through additional entries and / or surrendering a small loss if required to then enter another long position at the next support (when oil is selling off intra-day).

It is vital that you do not hold a long trade of any significant size in an intra-day sell-off, this will cause significant draw-downs to your account. You can always exit and take another trade if you protect your down-side.

Another key is holding enough in the reversal so that you can slowly release size as the reversal trade is occurring (something we are working on with the EPIC v3 software).

Exactly How We Established The Most Probable Low of Day Oil Price for The Reversal Trade To Win 6 out of 6 Day-trades Explained Below.

The technical analysis (charting) you see in the screen shots from the live trading room are oil trading models that are part of our system. Because crude oil is now widely traded by machines the models are highly predictable and structured, there is a system (rule-set) for planning your trade strategy.

In addition to the chart models (conventional and algorithmic) we also use our proprietary order flow software system (IDENT) which is simply a software code that identifies patterns in order flow much like we do as traders in charting.

How The Price Targets Are Established on the One Minute Oil Trading Time-Frame For Long Trades.

Once you have nailed the bottom area of intra-day trade (LOD) with your long trade positioning, the next challenge in daytrading crude oil is determining your price targets for trimming long positions and/or closing your positions all together.

One method we use (and our software is coded to) is symmetry as it relates to structured symmetry on the various algorithmic models on various time-frames. Below (and in more detail in the oil trading room video) I show our daytraders how to use the one minute oil chart time-frame symmetry to determine areas for price target upside extension for long trades.

Nice move through the quad on the daily reversal, slowly teaching the software to gain more of these moves, its a slow process one tweak at a time

developing a low risk trade sequence to gain accumulated size at the intra-day bottoms has been the priority, that was tricky enough, but slowly one step at a time we’ll get the full range coded, software up well today just on the bottom reversal trades so we’re happy, but the range will be a game changer
the larger the account the easier the sequence becomes to capture the whole move also

Machine Learning is Changing Our World and Compound Gains are Powerful. This is a Short Story About How Machine Trading is Changing Portfolio Return, Risk and Compound Trading Expectations.

The World is Changing Fast. The Landscape of Public Markets, Risk and Portfolio Return Along With It.

A brief search on Google brings many articles about the increase in automated machine trading and the possible future forward scenarios for public markets.

I was recently interviewed about this very topic – the future is unknown, but in my basic thinking machine learning is here to stay, I have tried to compete against it and I intend to be on the right side of the ROI trajectory.

First, A Snap-Shot of Our Brief History.

When we started our trading service we demonstrated how day trading and swing trading could net good day traders consistently 100% – 400% a year with a systematic rules-based process.

We video recorded every session live, alerted the trades to our clients and documented each trade. 

The naysayer says “I seen this or that trade that didn’t work!” – the small cross-section analyst that didn’t do their homework that is. Sure, we had our losses. But what they don’t say is that over-all we proved the returns were not only possible but probable (live recorded, time stamped, live alerted) in a systematic manner if a day trader uses a sound rules-based process, has an appropriate account size to execute various trades and sizing to spread risk (as we alerted live) and protects his/her downside. Anyone can go through our live alerts and videos to determine this to be the case. And we’re not the only day trading service that has or continues to provide these results – some even more.

What’s the point?

The point is that if you take an isolated cross-section of time, or you kinda executed the processes or kind of protected your downside or didn’t start with an appropriate account size to spread your risk then your individual scenario may have been different. But over-all, an investigation in to our processes show over 100% returns over all per annum daytrading and / or swing trading.

More specifically to the point, the same principle applies to machine trade development and testing. 

When a trader reaches this level of day trading (a winning process within an appropriate account size with protected risk), he/she can then start thinking about compounding his/her gains (the holy grail for a day trader).

Or, as we did, the successful trader may chose to turn their attention to algorithmic modeling and then on to machine trading.

In our case, we started with cracking the code to and building software for trading crude oil futures contracts.

Why go in to further risk? Because I knew what my potential returns were investing (I have over three decades of experience) and I now knew what my potential returns were day trading and swing trading. The last frontier for me was machine learning and whether we could achieve better returns in automated trade with less future forward risk and effort.

My retirement years will be as a trader, the only questions for me are; what kind of trader and what are the returns?

Day trading and swing trading equities (along with trading various ETF type instruments) is much easier to master than day trading crude oil and manifold times easier than building software to trade crude oil or any other instrument.

We knew that if we mastered the code / rule-set of machine trade that higher returns were obviously possible and that we could then build software for numerous other instruments (at will) and obviously leverage our time and compound return potential far in to the future.

The EPIC v1 machine software real-world trade test was returning a projected 20% per annum, v2 40%, v3 80% and the goal for EPIC’s version 4 was 160%.

Version 4 was too aggressive and exceeded our risk tolerance so we returned to EPIC v3 and it has been running with sound stability and very low downside risk for seven weeks at approximately 90% projected annual returns. We expect this percentage to consistently increase over time (as the software learns) with little to no additional down-side risk.

Stability of Software – downside risk vs. return is key. V4 EPIC I believe could hit 800% per year or more but the volatility and subsequent risk therein was too much for us to stomach in real-world testing (real-world is also key and required – paper-trading when testing the software doesn’t cut it).

Below is the Seven Week Real-World Trading Performance YTD for EPIC v3 Crude Oil Futures Machine Trading Software.

Will We Meet The Annual Return and Compound Trade Return Projection?

Only time will tell the story.

What I know for sure is that our v3 EPIC Crude Oil Machine Trade Software is extremely stable, has near zero down-side risk and has consistent gains.

It has been running for seven weeks as of this Tuesday, which in the machine trading world is a near life-time. At the eight week mark it is almost mathematically impossible for it to fail and at the twelve week point it is something like 99.99999% sure it will meet or exceed the expectations within current ROI trajectory. 

My guess, v3 ends up performing at 100% – 150% and easily meets or exceeds the projections, I have zero doubt about its stability and ability to protect downside loss. But as I said, all return projections are yet to be seen, time will tell.

Relative to the Top Performing Hedge Funds of 2018 we are doing well, the Odey fund came out on top of the pack, generating about 53% in returns. Also relative to the best returns of all time we’re competing; The Renaissance Technologies Medallion fund is considered to be one of the most successful hedge funds ever. It has averaged a 71.8% annual return, before fees, from 1994 through mid-2014.

I always said we would never have taken this project on if we thought there was a considerable chance we would fail. We knew it would be one of the hardest things we’ll ever try and accomplish, but we believed we would get there.

In my best estimation, we have now successfully cracked the code.

Thanks for being part of and supporting our journey.

7:49 AM EST Friday Crude Oil Started Sharp Intra-Day Sell-Off Dropping 200 Points in 40 minutes. We Went Long Live in Oil Trading Room and Alerting Buys in To Sell-Off and Nailed the Low Price and High Price of Day.

In the article below (one of the most important we have written) we detail the oil day trading strategy, trade positions (mapped on a chart) we executed short and long, screen capture images of oil trade alerts feed, technical charts, strategy comments, and live oil trading room raw video.

The Strategy Set-Up.

Thursday night going in to Friday morning (in CL futures trade) we alerted members by email and oil trade chat room (Discord server) there was a high probability of a significant sell-off coming in the over-night futures trading session (in to regular US market open). It was a channel resistance and symmetry set-up.

Oil did plunge in to the early morning on USA-China Trade War Escalation;

Oil plunged on trade-war escalation https://finance.yahoo.com/news/oil-plunges-trade-war-escalation-190000557.html?.tsrc=rss.

This set-up strategy we had been alerting to our members for some time as the trading channel resistance on the 30 minute chart time-frame was being challenged by oil bulls.

The key point is that there was also a significant algorithmic chart model symmetrical set-up developing, hence the alerts and trade guidance in the oil trade room (broadcast by voice).

You can see in the chart below the large red arrow and the green lighter arrows pointing down to a support area on the 30 minute chart. The red arrow is the area on the chart model to watch for the possible short selling set-up (as alerted) and the green arrows are the possible trajectory of the short trade.

The symmetry our models identified targeted this area of the chart model and time.

If you review the live oil trading room raw footage you will hear about the short set-up and strategy (which I know is cumbersome because we haven’t had time to splice short time frame snippets for you yet). But if you’re serious about wanting to become an expert oil trader the time is well invested.

Below is one alert to our members (screen shot capture) from the oil trading room. Our software did fire but this set-up is still being tweaked in the code (it was only a small win), but the subsequent long side oil futures buys were exceptional in that we nailed the low of day, each low of day and high of day thereafter.

Thursday night in to Friday (in CL futures trade) alerted members oil trade chat room high probability significant sell-off in over-night futures trade.

oil trading room, alert, oil trade, futures, selloff

Thursday night in to Friday (in CL futures trade) alerted members oil trade chat room high probability significant sell-off in over-night futures trade

As mentioned, we executed a short position prior to the sell-off (see trade locations below) but closed the position shortly before the 200 point tumble in oil price (the v3 EPIC software IDENT program had also alerted us to the order-flow turning down).

The code in our software is slowly being tweaked to move with the sharp intra-day crude oil sell-offs, it won’t be long and we will be hitting most sell-offs (for those that are unaware we now nail near all low of day reversals so we are tweaking the code for the other side of the trade, the sell-offs).

In the article below we highlight how we hit the low of day trade during the sell-off, how we hit the low in each bounce thereafter and how we closed our final oil long position at the high of day.

Our most recent article to this deals with the opposite scenario, selling in to resistance during an intra-day crude oil rally, read it here.

Please note:

  • When we alert 1/10 that means (for example) on an account of 100,000.00 that would normally execute a trade size of maximum 10 contracts, 1/10 size then represents 1 contract. We use a 100k account for our sample set for simplicity.
  • Trades and the strategy therein are alerted to a live trade broadcast room by voice (by a leader trader) and published as time allows to an oil trading alert feed on Twitter and in a Discord private member server.

The Trade Strategy Set-Up – Buying Crude Oil in to the Intra-day Sell-Off.

As mentioned above, the real key to this oil trade strategy story (the set-up and trades on the day) wasn’t the short side but how we managed to nail the bottom on a vicious sell-off, then nail each subsequent bottom and high of day while buying oil in to the sell-off plunge. 

Key take-away rules for trading long in to the sell-off:

  • Know the technical support on all chart time-frames (conventional and algorithmic).
  • Know which support areas are most probable areas for an intra-day reversal by way of historical back-tested data.
  • When order flow and price action reverse (bulls are buying and shorts are covering during the sell-off) is a key indicator that the low-of-day in oil trade may be in place.
  • When systematic market wide machine liquidity starts progressive buy programs, this is the low of day near 100% of the time (IDENT program). This is by far our best intra-day crude oil trading signal (proprietary and in development).
  • Manage trade sizing and sequence – releasing size of trade, adds, closing position etc.
  • Manage stops properly and know when to hold some or most of your trade size. 

Below is a screen image capture of some oil chat room guidance alerts as the sell-off progressed in premarket and then the buying started at support (see other screen images below).

What are the Probabilities of Trading The Low of Day, Each Low at Each Bounce and Closing High of Day?

Machine learning (as it applies to trading) is not like human learning and execution in that once the software begins to master a set-up it will rarely lose that similar set-up in future and it will increasingly extract more profit each time.

If you don’t want to use machine learning to enhance your trading (engaging a firm like our partners at Sovoron) then perhaps you can learn from the machine software (via alerts or oil trading room) to enhance your own oil day trading strategy.

Some of our clients do both – they have machine learning automation and mechanical human executed day trading in their over-all strategy. 

Either way, below is a summary time-line with screen image shots of how it was done.

Below is a chart showing the oil trades for the day that were alerted to the feeds and broadcast live in the oil trading room.

So How Did We Nail the Short Oil Prediction in Over Night / Premarket Session, Nail The Low of Day Price Target Trade, Subsequent Low of Day Trades and High of Day Trade?

We have thousands of rules in our algorithmic models to which each rule is weighted against the others, so this is no short answer.

But if you read the article above closely, you look at the alerts and if you are a member look at all the other charting and information sent out prior to and during this trade set-up you will begin learning (or add to your oil day trading strategy too-kit) many excellent additions to help you increase your profits.

The live trading room videos also help, reviewing past articles will help you, having all the conventional and algorithmic charts available to you for immediate reference during intra-day trade, trade coaching helps (I’ve never had a complaint) and being in the live trading room is key if you are really serious about learning our rule-set.

The oil trading rule-set that our v3 EPIC machine learning software uses is one of the best in the world, we know this because we did the hard work in back-testing every trading rule it uses and designing a trading strategy that weighs the rules one against the other.

The win rate, the return rate, the stability and the precision of the oil trading software is evidence of this fact.

You now just have to put in your part of the work – we have already done the heavy lifting for you.

Welcome to the matrix.

Live Oil Trading Room Video.

Please note: The video below is a raw feed only of the oil trading room for the whole day-trading session (we run the live video feed from 7am to 5pm EST). To listen to comments by the lead trader that contain specifics to his/her oil trade strategy / thinking as he/she and/or the software are trading and sending out alerts, look at the time stamp on the oil trade alert, chart, trading room screen capture image etc in this or any other report and correlate that to the video and go to that part of the video.

The Trade Strategy Set-Up – Selling Crude Oil Futures in To A Rally

Oil trade to start the week was/is bullish in some respects, the MACD on the daily is turned up and Trump seems to be softening a bit on the China trade war, and there was some news about a drone attack on Saudi Production Field also – so shorting in to a rally isn’t exactly going with the momentum. So this trade strategy does not have the momentum factor on our side.

Whenever possible trade with (in the direction of) momentum.

Oil ends higher after drone attack on Saudi production field
Published: Aug 19, 2019 4:09 p.m. ET

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/oil-climbs-after-drone-attack-on-saudi-production-field-2019-08-19

Nevertheless, technically oil trade intra-day was starting to get near resistance areas on various charting time frames, nearing resistance on important trend-lines on various time frame charts and was already up significantly on the day. At the time we started shorting oil intra-day our IDENT machine trade software was beginning to identify order flow selling pressure from other machine liquidity entities in intra-day markets.

Also, it was Monday trade -getting later in the day and Tuesday at 4:30 is the API report so any rally in price is likely to sell down somewhat (a retrace at minimum).

And finally, on days where crude oil has rallied it is often sold off in overnight futures trade session or in the following regular US regular session.

The price target on this short bias strategy is 55.22 (derived from the most probable price of oil per the EPIC Algorithm model) in to 4:30 Tuesday API report. We started shorting oil at 55.98 intra-day.

A crude oil day trade strategy such as this requires knowing where the technical resistance and support is on various time frame charting and the trader being able to size short trades in to resistance and cover various contract size at various supports. It requires technical know-how and strong risk management (trade size management, understanding technical range and emotional intelligence).

It isn’t an easy trade but comes with significant risk-reward if executed with proper discipline.

As mentioned above, at time of writing this trade sequence is still in play so I will update this article tomorrow with the conclusion of the trade results profit / loss etc. In the meantime I will share some charting, alerts, trading room video etc below so you can get a feel for how we are managing our execution of this particular strategy.

The oil chart below is a summary of all trades so far in the strategy.

Current sequence of all trades are mapped on the oil chart showing short trades (red) and buys to cover short positions (green). At this point we are 1/10 size short (at time of writing).

crude oil, trading, strategy, trades

Current sequence of trades mapped on an oil chart showing short trades (red) and buys to cover short.

The first four positions in red at left of chart image is a 4/10 size short when order flow was showing significant selling pressure was starting. This was the battle ground for continued rally in price of oil intra-day or a retrace in price of some sort.

The bulls won the intra-day range battle so we covered 2/10 size for small scalps and held 2/10 size as price continued to rally in to resistance.

We added 2 more positions of size in to the next resistance area of the charting and the progression goes from there, covering wins when possible at support areas and re-shorting at resistance areas.

If price alternately continued bullish we would have covered at least one if not the two add size positions of the short. However, price did not continue to rally and this area of trade was the high of day for oil nearing the end of regular US market session.

This process (of shorting chart resistance areas and covering short positions at support areas) will continue in the strategy (trade sequence) until a strong intra-day sell-off occurs, at which time we will cover the remaining short positions for a win.

In One Hour of Crude Oil Trade Wednesday Afternoon (After EIA Reported Inventories) Price Ran Up 134 Ticks, And We Knew The Bottom.

Below Are Tips for Intra-Day Reversal Trading Strategies and How To Determine Price Targets For Locating Bottom of Day Price.

Nail the bottoms in crude oil and you have the single most profitable strategy there is in trading crude oil. The intra-day reversals and subsequent run up in price move fast. Intra-day reversals can be precisely executed with an extremely high win rate (our v3 EPIC win rate is well over 90%) and you can build a profitable trading career with that one set-up.

The reversal trade in crude oil trade in this report and video is a real-world example from our oil trading room.

The intra-day oil futures short selling strategy / sequence from yesterday’s article concludes here also (see below).

We pick up the story in this article with us closing the winning oil short position / sequence from the Tuesday (selling in to the Trump news) and then on Wednesday (after the weekly EIA report) turning our focus toward pin-pointing likely oil trade reversal areas intra-day to possibly catch a bullish run-up trend intra-day after the sell-off.

The strategy worked. We caught the bottom near to the penny and we had the price target for the high of day within pennies also. Execution wasn’t perfect, but we are winning consistently and the v3 software is performing over expectation.

Exactly how we determined the most likely bottom area on the day and high of day price target is in the raw video feed from the live trading room (see below) and in this quick post.

With the limited time I have available to write this article in premarket, I will provide some of the tips you can use to locate bottoms for your daytrading strategies. For more on this subject, refer to the live trading room videos on YouTube and/or other articles we have published on this topic.

If there is one area of crude oil trade we know well, it is how to locate intra-day bottoms (low price of day) in advance to assist with a traders day trade strategy. The v3 EPIC Machine Trade Software has an extremely high success rate in this specific area of oil trade analysis.

Wednesday’s Live Oil Trading Room Session.

Please note:

  • When we alert 1/10 that means (for example) on an account of 100,000.00 that would normally execute a trade size of maximum 10 contracts, 1/10 size then represents 1 contract. We use a 100k account for our sample set for simplicity.
  • Trades and the strategy therein are alerted to a live trading room by voice (by a leader trader) and published as time allows to an oil trading alert feed on Twitter and in Discord private member server.

First I will share the guidance from the oil trading room server, alert feeds etc and then I’ll give you some pointers on how to locate bottoms in trade.

The raw video from the oil trading room provides significantly more detailed guidance.

So, The Question Then Is, How Did We Nail The Bottom Price On The Day? And How Is It That We Nail That Trade Day After Day With Well Over 90% Win Rate? Below Are My Tips:

What I Can’t Tell You (Top Secret):

  1. We are developing proprietary crude oil order flow AI software platform that is getting really accurate (IDENT). This software runs tandem to the EPIC Oil Trade Machine software that executes the trades. Sovoron then uses that data. Our trading service members and clients of SOVORON receive the benefit but I can’t tell you how it works, ever.
  2. We have been developing algorithmic chart models for crude oil trade on all time-frames for nearly three years now, this helps a lot in determining areas (range) of oil trade and turn-around (reversal, nap-back) trades. The oil algorithmic chart models are available to our trade service members in reports that are regularly distributed.
  3. We have taken the algorithmic chart models and coded them to machine trade software. The software then alerts myself (and team), our oil trading room traders, our trading service members and Sovoron to trades setting up and trade executions. I can’t tell you exactly how the software is coded beyond that, but I can say that it has over 4700 rules. The v3 software is executing a win rate well over 90%. You can learn how to trade on the information it uses by signing on to our newsletters, alerts and/or attend the live trading room.

What I Can Tell You:

Below are just a few tips I can provide with the limited time I have, but I can say that if you study our methods you can duplicate our win rate. We’re still learning and we’re teaching our trading service members and the recently launched AI software to trade oil (the software will obviously be much better than us soon enough), but I think you get the point. There is a process here, you just have to put in the work and learn.

  1. Conventional Crude Oil Charts are critical for your trading strategy. Our software uses them, I (our team) use them and you should be using them daily. All time frames are important so that you know the key areas of support and resistance for your day trading plan. Trend-lines on all times frames should be at your immediate access when trading oil.
  2. Algorithmic Crude Oil Chart Models refine  and compliment conventional charting. They help you see what you wouldn’t otherwise be able to see. They also help you know better what the large machine liquidity in the oil markets are likely to do with each support and resistance area. Algorithmic models also provide you with a future forward GPS. For example, you will know where possible channels are before they appear from trade. In summary, algorithmic chart models provide you with the lay of the land – the structure of trade on various time-frames. It is this structure that wide market machine liquidity is programmed to compete within.
  3. When Sizing Your Intra-day Reversal Trade be sure you can release some size almost immediately so that if the trade then goes against you (after the initial spike) then you have some “room” for your stops. In other words, if price spikes 10 ticks after you enter a 3 contract trade then close 1 contract and then if price returns to your buy then decide if you want to release another and then if it goes 10 ticks under your buy release the last. In that scenario you have lost zero. So if you get good at this trade set up then you have a near zero risk trading edge IF YOU DON’T HOLD LOSERS. Where we are working with our software right now is with it holding some as price reversal continues. We have mastered the bottom reversals and now we’re training the software to hold some size and ride some profit. It’s complicated to explain but I’m sure you get the point.
  4. Technically watch for increasing volume at possible lows. Know your support and resistance on every time frame, your trend lines are key as are algorithmic chart model structures. Get to know your important times of day, times of week, time-cycles, events etc. Also, if you can enter after a flash down (a quick spike down in to your intended support) this is best. This allows for some range on the snap-back reversal and if the trade fails you can exit.
  5. And finally, DO NOT HOLD BAGS. Losing trades can be tough to recover. Our v3 software may hold some (very small) but only because it can locate the next bottom and hit it long and have a small loser right side up very quickly. If intra-day trade leaves the intra-day structure our v3 software will close the small position for a loss. This by the way is its edge and the primary reason the v3 EPIC Oil Trading Machine Software very rarely loses a trade.

Bottom Line:

  1. We obviously know how to locate intra-day bottoms in oil price and most often also tops (although top price of day targets are more difficult as is trading oil short from the top – bottom reversals are much easier to trade). The everyday oil trader can learn our methods and find a high win rate with an excellent ROI. Reviewing our videos on YouTube, reviewing our written blog posts and signing on with us will go a long way to you learning this trading edge. This becomes a really easy trading strategy when you have done your study, have the right indicators in front of you when trading, receive some experienced guidance when needed and have our alerts / guidance.
  2. As our software better learns how to hold profits and trail out of the intra-day reversal trades the win rate will remain the same but the ROI of the software graph will likely go parabolic from about 90% per annum (see chart) to a vertical ROI graph – we aren’t far away from this now.
  3. The majority (we estimate now to be close to 90%) of order flow in the oil markets is now machine traded, if you aren’t at least learning how they trade then you’re just not awake to the profitable world it offers.Between 2012 and 2016, almost two-thirds of crude oil contracts traded on CME’s futures exchange were automated, up from 54 per cent, according to a 2017 study by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission. https://www.ft.com/content/8cc7f5d4-59ca-11e8-b8b2-d6ceb45fa9d0
  4. Dig in to the links below at the bottom of this article if you want to investigate how our development process can help you profit in the oil trading markets.

Live Oil Trading Room Video.

Please note: The video below is a raw feed only of the oil trading room for the whole day-trading session (we run the live video feed from 7am to 5pm EST). To listen to comments by the lead trader that contain specifics to his/her thinking as he/she and/or the software are trading and sending out alerts, look at the time stamp on the oil trade alert, chart, trading room screen capture image etc in this or any other report and correlate that to the video and go to that part of the video.

On Wednesday I was fairly active on mic around trading times with trade set ups and execution of trades.

Selling Against An Intra-Day Bullish Break-out In Crude Oil Is Difficult. Here’s How We Day Short-Sold The Trump – China Break-Out News Yesterday.

The trade sequence in this report is a real-world example from our oil trading room. The intra-day oil futures short selling strategy / sequence as of the time of writing this report is not complete so there will be a Part 2 to this post.

Tuesday was a bullish break-out day for crude oil markets. Trump messaged to the world that some tariffs would be delayed and this sent oil soaring in price intra-day.

Oil prices continued to rally on Tuesday, this time on reports that the United States has decided to delay the next round of tariffs that were to be imposed on Chinese goods.

The delay gives hope to a skittish market that the trade war really won’t go on forever.

For WTI, oil prices had climbed 4.30% by 12:36pm EDT to trade at $57.29. Brent Crude was trading up even more at 4.70%, at $61.32—resuming its over $60 per barrel that it had fallen under during the first week of August as the trade war stoked fears of souring oil demand growth.

In addition to the tariff delay, which will now go into force on December 15, the United States will also be taking some of the items on that tariff list off completely, according to its newest policy document published on the Office of the United States Trade Representative website. While the list hasn’t been made public, it will include items that will be removed “based on health, safety, national security, and other factors”.

https://oilprice.com/Energy/Energy-General/Oil-Spikes-As-US-Delays-Tariffs-On-Chinese-Goods.html

When the intra-day price in the bullish break-out (on Trump news) was over-extended technically on charts and trade was starting to get in to overhead supply (order-flow), we began a short selling sequence.

Below is the first part of this article because (as I mentioned above) the short selling sequence is still in play and includes a significant number of trade executions.

So for today’s article I will include a chart that shows / maps out each trade execution as I and the v3 EPIC machine trading software executed the trades, the raw footage from the oil trading room and some miscellaneous charting. Then in Part 2 of this article (when the trade sequence is complete) I will explain each trade execution in detail so that it may help you with your crude oil day trading strategies.

Tuesday’s Live Oil Trading Room Session.

Please note:

  • When we alert 1/10 that means (for example) on an account of 100,000.00 that would normally execute a trade size of maximum 10 contracts, 1/10 size then represents 1 contract. We use a 100k account for our sample set for simplicity.
  • Trades are alerted to a live trading room by voice (by leader trader) and published as time allows to an oil trading alert feed on Twitter and in Discord private member server.

As mentioned above, Tuesday’s daytrading session in crude oil futures was a short selling strategy in to a spike in price that was over extended technically.

Below is a chart that shows / maps each location of trade (red are the short selling trades and green are the buy or cover trades, each arrow is 1/10 size). Part 2 of this article will be published tomorrow when this sequence is complete.

At time of writing we are green (positive, profitable) in the trade sequence and it will be interesting to see how it completes.

The short selling sequence below is a protocol within the v3 EPIC Crude Oil Machine Trading Software code.

First a few screen capture images from the private oil chat server and associated alerts and charts and then the main chart showing location of each trade is below that.

Below is an image screen shot from the private member oil trading server of the first trade alerts on the day.

Chart from oil trading room trade alerts that shows each buy and sell alert in crude oil in short selling sequence.

And below is a screen shot of most recent oil trade alert from Jeremy stating that the software covered the last of the short selling contracts but is still in a short bias sequence.

Also Jeremy notes that the machine trade software (and myself with manual trade execution) are now on profitable side of the trade sequence, which isn’t bad performance for the v3 software that is less than 6 weeks old and just ran its first larger short selling sequence in to over extended intra-day trading range on the Trump news. So I’m very satisfied because I would have assumed this would be a red or loss day on first go round in this specific new sequence.

Each time the software encounters a similar set-up it will execute for a better ROI, this is the power of machine trading.

The software (v3 EPIC Oil Machine Trade Software) has had 1 red day for 0.2% draw down since it was launched – it has been running for about 5 weeks. It has had a few trade sequences that it was in the red during the sequence (such as this) but has always come up profitable on the day it completes a sequence (with the one exception).

The key with the v3 vs v4 is that the v3 software only holds at most 1/10 size in to an intra-day range (it will hold more on a high frequency very short term basis) and v4 would hold easily 3/10 or more on a much wider range of trade – this allowed for significant volatility in profit and loss.

The smaller holds in to pressure with v3 allows for a projected loss day of 1 in 10 estimated to be equal to the average win day – excellent, balance risk-reward threshold, especially if it can do 80% or more annual returns (which appears to be the case). The smaller holds also allows for v3 to maneuver easier when off-side intra-day because it always has ample “dry powder” to work with.

JeremyToday at 6:11 AM
Buy / cover 1/10 56.18 hold 0 but still in sequence to sell

If the software ends the sequence and/or flips to a buy sequence will advise, but at this point it is still short sequence.

I will explain each trade execution you see in the chart above in a future post when this trade sequence is complete, which I expect will occur today prior to the EIA report at 10:30.

Live Oil Trading Room Video.

Please note: The video below is a raw feed only of the oil trading room for the whole daytrading session. To listen to comments by the lead trader that contain specifics to his thinking as he and/or the software are trading and sending out alerts, look at the time of the oil trade alert and correlate that to the video and go to that part of the video.

On Tuesday, in the video below, I wasn’t providing real in depth trade guidance verbally to the room like I normally attempt to do, I was alerting the trades however. I was busy with our developers because this set-up was new to the v3 machine trade code (each new set-up in oil trade requires “teaching” of the software).

Trading Intra-Day Range Can Be A Profitable Day Trading Strategy For Oil Traders.

Below is a real world example from our oil trading room last Thursday that highlights trade of the important intra-day trading range (in this instance the range of trade is a technical trading box structure).

Today (Monday) there were no trades in the trading room so I am going back a few market days and using it for our example.

Before digging in to this article, please read the introductory article for this series here: How Oil Day Traders Can Learn to Trade Better Using Success & Failure of Our Trading Development Team – Part 1.

The articles in this series are sent direct to the mailing list – so be sure to register now,  click here.

The most recent oil trade profit loss for v3 sample set is here;

Overview of Thursday’s Oil Trading Session.

The image below (a screen capture) from the oil trading room shows oil trading within a chart trade box – a range of trade (see yellow box on chart) on the day.

This post is intended to bring to the forefront of the oil traders mind a clear image example of an intra-day trading range structure and how to day trade that range.

Learning how to trade the intra-day range of crude oil is a vital area of study for anyone that wants to be consistently profitable in this game.

The biggest challenge is identifying the range and then once identified execution of your trades becomes easier. Identifying a range is not easy before trade has happened or even during trade – it is much easier to identify after the fact (after trade has clearly drawn in the lines on the chart so to speak).

In short, we traded successfully on Thursday but it was a bit choppy. Both I with manual executed trades and the machine trading software were green on the day.

Lead Trader Guidance in Private Member Server, Oil Trading Broadcast Room and to Alert Feeds.

In Regular US Market Premarket I Provided Range Trade Guidance to our Oil Trading Chat Room Attendees (a private member Discord server for sharing charts etc), to the Live Oil Trading Broadcast Room (this is where I trade live and broadcast trades over a mic) and to the Private Member Twitter Oil Alert Feed with a Daily Chart.

The buy triggers on watch I am sharing with the day traders are on various chart model time frames, the 1 minute, 5 minute, 30 minute, and Daily charts.

This article is not specifically about various support buy triggers on different chart model time-frames as described in this guidance, however, it is part of the intra day set up in crude oil trade and vital to the architecture of our v3 software and ROI (and vital to the daytrader) so I include these details in this article.

For those really wanting to dig in to how we find support areas on the charting simply look at the time stamp on the chart image captures in any of these articles and correlate that time with the raw oil trading room video feed included in these articles and listen to what the lead trader (in this instance myself) is saying about the set up.

There were specific trend lines on the daily chart that crude oil was respecting, that we had communicated to our members about prior that was my primary watch going in to the regular US market day.

Oil Trade Example – Lessons Learned.

I will state that before I explain as best as possible below in writing and using screen shot images from the private member Discord chat server, oil trading room and oil alert feed that if you are serious about learning how we trade to a win rate higher than 90% that I highly recommend investing the time to match the time stamps you see on the images in these articles to the time of day on the raw oil trading room video and listen to the set up as explained over the mic.

I know that we are all busy, but this is the best way to really learn what we are doing and why our win rate is so high with the v3 oil daytrading software. Alternatively you could register for private coaching lessons as this would be more time efficient but more expensive also.

The challenge with these reports is that they are time intensive to reconcile, the screen shot images, the details, reviewing the videos and P&L’s, then explaining etc takes a lot of time so there is considerable information not included in these articles that you would otherwise garner if you had the time available to review the raw trading room footage – but I get it, it is a slow process and life is busy for most of us.

First trade of the day in oil trading room alerted was a short at 52.75 and we close soon thereafter at .72 for a time cycle decision. The time cycle decision we won’t get in to in this article (time cycles are advanced technical indicators we will cover at a later date). What is most specific to this article is why we shorted at 52.75. First see the alert below and then we’ll look at the chart range structure.

The image below from the oil trading room at 11:41 shows that intra-day oil was trading in to structural resistance trend line on the 30 minute EPIC Oil Algorithm Chart Model. This is a significant sell signal. We closed shortly thereafter because there was an intraday time cycle decision coming on the 5 minute model (again, time cycles we will cover in a later article) and you can always re-enter a trade.

So in short, at 12:24 (after the time cycle decision on the 5 minute chart) trade did respect the 30 minute larger chart structure resistance trend line and was in fact trading down intra-day. The chart image in the example below is the one minute chart.

So if trade was in fact selling off intra-day then why did we not re-enter short?

This is also explained below, the bulls were still buying at each support at this time in the day. Our software is programmed to trade and alert the most probable wins only. The v3 win rate is well over 90% for this reason. So often the trade set up will play out as expected but I myself and/or the software may not alert a trade because it isn’t a premium trade with a super high probability of a win.

In this instance, trade then started to really sell of on a short time frame and within a small structure. So the trade set-up worked, but we did not re-enter after the time cycle decision at 12:00.

But what we did do is then alert a new buy signal approaching on a time cycle decision…

Alerting our members in oil trading room and on alert feeds that a buy signal on timing is approaching and the initial buys shown.

You can see on the one minute daytrading chart model below the green arrows are the buys and the red selling locations from the alerted oil trade.

You will notice that we alerted our members 4 minutes in advance of the timing so they could be ready.

This alert typically goes to the private member Twitter feed, the Discord Private Server (shown below) and in to the Live Trading room (as time allows for each – this can be difficult at times so we do our best, obviously the live mic trading in the oil trading room is best but the alert feeds do receive about 80% or more of our trade set-ups alerted).

We then communicate on mic verbally in the oil trading room the complete set up as time allows. This may include various charting, order flow detail etc.

The trade size was 2/10 (so this means that with an account that is approximately 100k in size or would trade approximately 10 contracts at max this would be a 2 contract long daytrade in crude oil futures).

We alerted that we were 2 contracts in size long (assuming a 100k account size for simplicity) at 52.56 on FX USOIL WTI charting (we use this as a single source for various traders using various instruments).

We then sold 1 contract at 52.65 and held one contract long at this point (alert is shown in screen capture below).

At this point, if you are following along and really in it here, you may wonder why we executed a trade long when the price of oil was relatively close to the resistance on the daily range?

The answer is simple, but more detailed than I can get in to here (here again review of raw trading room footage is key).

Nevertheless, basically the reasons were that trade intra-day was bullish and a break out was increasingly more probable, our order flow software had identified considerable progressive buy side accumulation (hence why we knew a break out was coming – see the previous post for more detail) and the trade itself was taken at a clear support area of our one minute day-trading chart model with progressive increasing buy side order flow.

See the screen capture below from our trading room that shows the support area on the one minute daytrading chart that triggered (in part) the long trade. You will also notice that we then alerted to the members that there was a sell signal time cycle decision approaching.

Next, as you will see below, the real day trading action started. Reviewing just the alerts (as seen below) is not the best way to study this, the best way is to listen to the video raw feed from the trading room. Again, I get it if you don’t have time.

During intraday trade we alert what we can but we often go in to great detail in the live trading room for the set ups as they are progressing.

In this specific instance what was happening was that there was an accumulation of bulls starting to buy to force a break out and volatility was starting. Most of our members understand where the resistance areas are so it is easier for them to see that a resistance is coming and would understand the alerts below (the reasoning) than a casual observer.

Anyway, what was happening is a possible run for a break out, but in that instance it is possible for the break out to fail a number of times before it may succeed, so what you see below is our oil trading machine software and myself (manually executing oil daytrades) trading with price action and order flow relative to resistance areas on the chart (also taking in to consideration time cycles etc).

In short, what occurred as shown below in the alerts is that we reversed the long trade short and then reversed again long and added to the long trade as the buy side order flow took over the short sellers in intra-day crude oil trade.

You will see notes from the oil trading room below that reference what time stamps one should refer to on the recorded trading room raw footage to study out how we did what we did. It was a successful day of trading and it was not a beginner trading environment. But what I can say is that our members have the advantage of simply executing along with us and / or our machine software trading it.

And here the daytrading session is coming near to a close and the oil trade alert goes out to liquidate the last of the long trade size in to resistance on one minute chart and range intraday – after all, if price breaches the resistance shown below on the two models (the one minute chart and 30 minute chart) then you can always re enter the trade right?

Some Important Final Thoughts.

  1. There are many, many more lessons to learn about how this was done than what is included in this article. Again, if you’re serious about study, defer to the live trading room raw feed video below.
  2. The v3 software was only rebooted a few days before this trading session…. think “re-birth”, it was in its early learning process and a week later would have executed this set up with far greater precision. But that is the nature of machine trade development. It did well, but it will do so much better within days – it doesn’t take long for the learning curve to inflect vertical.
  3. The whole trading range rule set on the day can be summarized in much simpler form by simply saying that once you have identified an intra-day range of trade you simply buy the bottoms and sell the tops. Release size at various resistance decisions and DO NOT HOLD LOSERS. The challenge of course is that it isn’t quite that easy – it is much easier to see an intraday structure on a chart after the fact than it is to see the range structure before or during trade within that structure. Back seat drivers need not comment, try driving it first. After the fact you get to see the map – that’s easy.
