The first close above and below/inside the zone was espected (a wick).
Then that bearish move was weak but it closed below the zone, the next bar closed weak inside the zone, was that a reversal?

Thank you

How are you trading crude?
How does V8power hedge?

When a fire breaks out and the sprinkler system comes and you are standing there looking at the flames being put out then think of a stop loss.

A stop loss doesn't protect jack-sht, it just puts the fire out.

The only real protection is taking profit: you can take profit and move your stop, but just moving your stop isn't really doing anything:

I'm not following the math :(
Are that 5 or 2 lines at risk?

Sorry, I wasn't clear on my question.
Not seeking a method, wondering what broker or how you trade crude when I thought U.S. citizens were not allowed to speculate on oil.

You can trade Crude Oil Light, on futures. I use tradestation.

Doji
if just trading a single time frame after the 3 sets does it have to be a 2 sema before you draw your zone? sometimes the 1 shows up pretty quick but the 2 doesnt show up for a while or sometimes at all. I really haven't spent much time studying that indicator.
thanks
