Today's, complete text chat logs below.
##TheStrategyLab primary purpose is for you to use the free chat room as a supplemental trade journal to post your trades and/or price action analysis via WRB Analysis.
Simply, if you log into ##TheStrategyLab free chat room...you're required to post your trade fills and/or you're talking about WRB Analysis of the price action you see on your monitors, posting price action analysis, ask real-time questions about WRB Analysis or posting your real-time trades (simulator or real money) in a timestamp environment after you've received confirmation from your broker trade execution platform...in combo with your professional trade journal software that does your quantitative statistical analysis of your trade performance.
Just as importantly, if you log into the free chat room and do not post your trades...you must post in your private thread after you complete your trading day...post a redacted screenshot of your trade fills in broker trade execution platform, broker statement, or quantitative statistical analysis from your professional trade journal software...no exceptions.
TheStrategyLab free chat room is located on the Libera IRC network along with being a serious professional trading chat room for traders that want to talk about their use of WRB Analysis (e.g. Contracting Volatility, WRBs, WRB Hidden GAPs, WRB Zones, WRB/WRB Hidden GAP profit targets, Key Market Events, Reaction Highs/Lows, Expanding Volatility, R area of WRB Zone, S area of WRB Zone, midpoint of WRB Zone and speed of the price action) merged with their trade methods to improve the performance of their trade methods regardless if they're a position trader, swing trader, day trader, trend trader or range trader.At the minimum, you must be using the WRB Analysis Free Study Guide. In fact, you must verify your understanding and application of WRB Analysis in your trading prior to being allowed entry into the free chat room...no exceptions.
Therefore, you're welcome to use TheStrategyLab chat room to ask questions about WRB Analysis, post your real-time price action analysis involving WRB Analysis merged with your own trade methods, post real-time trades via WRB Analysis, or talk about general market issues impacting today's price action involving stocks, futures, exchange traded funds or forex currencies as part of your trade journal. In addition, we welcome all traders (beginners, experienced, part-time, full-time) that are merging WRB Analysis with their trade methods or using WRB Analysis to help develop a better understanding of the price action (market context) they're trading.
This is not a signal calling (trade alerts) room. Our free chat room has never been advertised as a trade alerts room and we ban traders for attempting to use our chat room as a signal calling trade alerts room for the purpose to mimic / copy / piggyback / replicate trades posted by any of our members.
With that said, thanks for reviewing (reading) the below-timestamped trades, price action analysis or market commentaries and we highly recommend you make reading of the chat room logs (we use it to provide critical missing info for our broker statements) a part of your trading routine because you will sometimes find useful market context information that's critical to understanding price action trading.
Reminder...most users of WRB Analysis do not use the free chat room but they still are posting their DOKs to verify their understanding of WRB Analysis and posting redacted screenshots of timestamp trade fills (simulator or real money) in broker trade execution platform to verify their application (trade performance) in their private thread.Yet, be aware that many traders (including me) are posting our redacted screenshots of timestamp trade fills in broker trade execution platform and quantitative statistical analysis of the trade performance via WRB Analysis in the private thread section at the forum. For members that have questions about their trading with WRB Analysis, I use their redacted screenshots of timestamp trade fills in their broker trade execution platform and their charts to verify if a trader is correctly using WRB Analysis...is critical info I can not get from their broker statements alone.

Bloomberg Markets: The Open Full Show (09/13/2022) @ Bloomberg Video: The Open Full Show
[09:29:06] * Now talking in #TheStrategyLab
[09:29:06] * ChanServ sets mode: +o wrbtrader
[09:36:31] <@wrbtrader> Good morning...the 0830am est KME shook up the markets and its volatility
[09:38:25] <@wrbtrader> Huge gap down on the regular session chart and I actually watch the all session chart earlier this morning via the TICK chart to get a good feel of that change in the volatility and the sell pressure
[09:39:51] <@wrbtrader> TICK charts is not a timeframe I use in trading but I like to monitor the price action on crazy price action "reaction" to the KME
[09:41:36] <@wrbtrader> KMEs today @ 1pm and 2pm est
[10:00:44] <@wrbtrader> Still a lot of downside pressure...I've ignore two Long signals that showed up with all of that downside pressure
[10:00:58] <@wrbtrader> The two Long signals would have resulted as a trade loss
[10:02:03] <@wrbtrader> Until that downside pressure stalls out...I will only be taking Short signals
[10:17:00] <@wrbtrader> volatility contraction and the price range has become tighter
[10:17:18] <@wrbtrader> I'm now expecting a volatility spike here soon
[10:19:20] <@wrbtrader> volatility spike showed up to take prices UP several points
[10:26:49] <@wrbtrader> price action back inside that contracting volatility tight range

[10:41:06] <@wrbtrader> Covered all Emini ES Short @ 4009.50 --> + 6.5
[10:41:29] <@wrbtrader> small WRB pt1 reached
[10:41:54] <@wrbtrader> Whenever I say small WRB pt1...its not based upon the numberr off points.
[10:42:53] <@wrbtrader> In contrast, its based upon the comparison of the WRB interval to the prior three intervals in the concept of the entire visual chart on my monitor
[10:46:51] <@wrbtrader> Price action now in a creeper downtrend since 1030am est
[10:47:19] <@wrbtrader> meant since 1034am est

[11:27:15] <@wrbtrader> another contracting volatilty tight trading range...
[11:27:44] <@wrbtrader> there are traders still trying hard to fight this creeper downtrend by going Long
[11:38:39] <@wrbtrader> Covered Remainder Emini ES Short @ 4003.00 --> + 0.75
[11:38:59] <@wrbtrader> trail stop pick pocketed

[12:26:30] <@wrbtrader> Short signal that I missed was @ 4006.25
[13:14:25] <@wrbtrader> Price action bouncing all over the place and producing WRB Hidden GAP intervals fairly easy
[13:14:52] <@wrbtrader> That's algos causing chaos in the price action
[14:26:02] <@wrbtrader> downward pressure on the price action has returned
[14:26:10] <@wrbtrader> now a volatility spike
[14:28:02] <@wrbtrader> Covered all Emini ES Short @ 3991.75 --> + 13.75
[14:29:13] <@wrbtrader> my lucky trade of the trading day because soon after my Short entry...it started going against me.
[14:30:16] <@wrbtrader> I almost exit this Short with a -3 point loss
[14:31:01] <@wrbtrader> Simply, recognizing my poor entry and then bad trade management...luckily the trade rolled over south again
[14:31:13] <@wrbtrader> With that said, take care and see you tomorrow

##TheStrategyLab (located on the Libera IRC network) is free and is a serious professional trading chat room involving WRB Analysis in which any trader (position trading, swing trading, day trading) can use the chat room to post their trades or commentaries about stocks, futures, exchange traded funds or forex currencies. Simply, you don't need to be a client of TheStrategyLab.com to use the free chat room nor do you need to be a price action trader (no indicators) because some members use indicators while others do not.
The only requirement is that you verified you've learned (understood) / applying the WRB Analysis Free Study Guide in your trading.
Therefore, we welcome all traders that want to learn/use WRB Analysis regardless if they are beginners or experience traders in price action trading.
The purpose of ##TheStrategyLab is that it's designed to be a trade journal for documentation purposes only so that members can have a time stamp archive of trades and market commentaries of each trading day so that they can better understand their broker statements from one trade to the next trade when they review their performance numbers on any given trading day.
Further, members are not obligated to educate nor help other members but members are encouraged to ask questions about any trades or market commentaries that are posted by others because sometimes the answers contain useful trading tips.The free chat room is not a signal calling trade alert room with a head trader telling you what to trade, when to buy or when to sell. In fact, we do not believe in the business model of a head trader telling other traders when to buy and sell. It's a flawed approach to trading and it's a flawed substitution for mentoring in which a trader can not learn how to be a successful independent trader.
In addition, our primary job in the free chat room is to moderate the room (keep the peace) because with so many members using different trade signal methods along with different opinions about the market...debates or arguments can easily flare up without moderating. In addition, our presence in the chat room is to ensure it's a spam-free chat room during trading although these archived chat logs may contain advertisements for guest visitors.
