One of the best ways to position yourself in an intraday trade in crude oils is by trading at or near a 30 minute bar close. This is true because the average 30 minute bar move is about 50 ticks. There are 11 such periods in each trading day (pit session). Therefore you can possibly get caught in a runner of 50 ticks up to 11 times a day using this method. Our best method of entry can get into this position on about 7 ticks of risk for a risk-reward ratio of more than 7:1 for each 30 minute period. Below we discuss a couple key techniques for making the most of each of these intervals for your trading. Note: you must be logged in as a room member to access the rest of this article.

Friday (12/19/2014) was a choppy trading day for sure. As I was reviewing my trades that day, I thought it might be helpful to write a summary of the trades I took and how I managed to pull out 140 ticks in a basically choppy market, probably the most difficult trading day of the week. There were definitely no 100+ tick trades on Friday! I even had one really stinker of a trade. At the end of the day, however, with good trade management, I was able to end on the positive side. I am going to base my review almost exclusively on the megabar charts.
