Crude Oil Trading Plan Success – Week of July 16

Posted in: Trading Article


A futures market that gets a lot of attention from traders in our Inner Circle, is crude oil.

Crude oil futures is a very liquid market and when combined with our trading plans, can be a very consistent income generating market.

You are not limited to only trading the regular sessions but once a week, we have a bonus session where we trade the actual Crude Oil Inventory Report.

When the crude oil inventory report is released, we often experience volatility that when following our specific trading plan, can have you in and out of the market in minutes.


5 Winning Sessions

Our crude oil trading plan was nearly perfect this week posting a perfect 5 winning sessions and even won its bonus session, the Crude Oil Inventory Report.

Remember that our goal with all of our trading plans is: to quit a vast majority of our sessions with a positive result, while controlling drawdown with minimal and efficient trading.

It was a very interesting week of trading with many of our main trading plans for day traders posting big gains, including our eMini tradeplans.
