Crude Oil: Looking to Re-Enter Longs

TVC:USOIL   CFDs on WTI Crude Oil
I sold my longs that I entered Friday yesterday at 46.64, which was the . 786 retracement of the bearish pinbar from 10:30 AM yesterday. I am now watching for my chance to re-enter.

There seems to be a kind of flag forming which suggests a bullish continuation. So far there has been a bounce from the .382 of the high to low...I am watching this area again which also happens to be the confluence zone of a potential Bat and Shark pattern.

As per my new strategy I will be looking to enter upon a bullish candle on the small time frame with my stop loss below it, and look to move to breakeven/cover costs after I am up some pips. If I get stopped out, I will watch for the next bullish candle and try again.


If you have any comments or feedback on this idea or your own view on Crude Oil , please share it with me! Good luck in your trading.

First attempt was stopped out with no loss...unfortunate that level turned out to be the .618 of the larger bounce but wanted to stick to the plan.

Will watch closely here..and upon a re-test of the PRZ

Went up 9 pips and considered moving to breakeven/cover costs but strayed from my strategy and it cost me 11 pips. Lesson learned!

Now looking to get back in lower...so far a bounce from 45.50, 1 pip away from where my =
