in my prop days i used to trade Nikkei during the night
there was a possibility to stay overnight with senior traders at the office
i moved to different city ---- i had nothing to do so i stayed few times
i remember some pretty wild moves in that market
but trading for like 20 hours straight was DEVASTATING
i developed some kind of aversion ---- i dont like it that much ever since
BUT
nevertheless its great market
thats why people wanted to pull those fkn 20+ hours stunts

meanwhile im really enjoying the CL

commodities are awesome
heres a fun fact!
around 80% of coal mining costs come from the oil usage
so if they sell coal at a good price
they go to oil and buy at (almost) any price
and they sit on it until expiry and wait for devilery ---- they are not profiting from speculation
so there are loads of money being just thrown away into the market
you can win AND they can win at the same time
thats rare

NOW
i dont play that
i dont analyse the market in that manner
but its something to keep in mind
moves in commodities can be very clear sometimes
because someone just needs that commodity

good thing to pay attention to is the VWAP
trader contracting commodities most of the time gets paid in relation to daily average price
he must beat the market basically

this is so yale man
i just yaled yo asses
lol


I'm all about the "Yale"

Also that crude is nice but you just can't get that size like the s&p. Easily pull $1000 a day with 10 contracts in crude. I really like the flow CL and NQ have.

I think my friend will like that Nikkei but I was having issues getting 4 contracts filled in one swoop. That could be the size sweet spot.

Nikkei can be thin at times
that is true
but the volatility makes up for it

on the other hand es is HEAVY
you can rely on a level
i like that about it

its kinda obvious when you think about it
there are big players/ market makers in Nikkei and in ES
they want liquidity
so to build enough size for them to matter
Nikkei or even CL is more about the zones/ clusters of levels
where ES is more about the single levels

____
trading is super interesting
but i cant imagine starting the jurney all over again
thankfully humans got ignorance
and you grossly underestimate the jurney in the beggining
it helps
its good to stay in the zone of proximal development
keeps you focused on the process not the outcome
thats super fkn yale lol


i will go into hiding now :wink:
thanks for chatting Alias!
take care mate!

Nice crude trades, I really like the market (crude) and it appears you do also.

Edit: for me (BE +5 +8 +11 )not bad for CL on Friday :D
