But do you consider Oil volatile enough now? I think it has a good trading potential with fundamental analysis, just check how Yemen Rebellions affected it's price, or it's just a part of normal growth. A bit confused but want to try bullish position for 2-3 days to see how it goes
Cheers.
I do some research upon oil price lately, and build an automatic system upon it.
lately I use broker with #CL symbol, and it's always changing traded symbol each month, for example #CLK5 for curent month oil traded. while on my tickmill platform it use WTI, and dont change for each months. I use to trade EU mostly with them, and my ea also run well with them. since they offer a more competitive spread I'd like to try these new method with their platform. but first I need to clarify what the difference upon these two, the CL and WTI (I believe it's not their spread though). I simply use london-us market session break out strategy for a moment, fully technical type so I dont had a clear clue with it come to fundamental news, or political situation. I just aim for medium average pips gain anyway .

Yeah, seems we are from different trader camps But nevertheless Tickmill is good to try Oil, though it's recently introduced I think they tested it enough to offer us, BTW what's your average lot size you plan to use in your system?

no problem, difference never mean cannot collaborate . actually it's a good chance for me to ask many thing related to oil price behaviour. my current information are mostly based on historical chart, backtest result. any information upon their best time to trade, any month or day should I avoid to trade with them, or perhaps any special occasion where most trader dont put trade with them, if any.
yeah they doing good to put oil price available to trade. well, actually with their 0.4 pips spread on Oil price, are match requirement my current trading system (works best with below 1 pips trading instrument). regarding lot size, I will go with common set up, 3-4% risk per trade, predefined SL.
check your pm, sent my skype ID so we can discuss the detailed information, and will let you had the ft link.

I always thought that it's impossible to predict market by it's history, but recently found a concept called "efficient market hypotesis" by Eugene F. Fama, which turned over my mind completely regarding historical analysis. Sure oil market is no exception and building forecasts on its historical data is also possible.
How deep is your touch in history data? 6 months, 1 year? or more?

each trader who's been long enough with the market would fully agree with that.
the main problem with the market price are, prediction. I do mean these are the real problem of any single trader ( including me ). all of us try to predict, that's when problem comes, no one would ever accurately the market, due market are contain of many people, instituonal traders, bankers, and so on.
in short, market only talk to it self, but good news is market never lies .
it applied to any trading instrument, oil are no exception. my historical data are not much really, 1 year historical data stored. but that's not the issue, I'm not trying to predict the market based on their past performance. my method much more simple, instead of predict, i intend to react to market movement.
and here's my current method apply with EURUSD pair, and next trading day will attach with Tickmill WTI chart since it has similar low spread to EU price.

been long time since use such method, but these are not. use breakout trading method, with fixed lot size, predefined stop loss, and trail stop as exit system.
here's current chartspace with WTI price, just realize their WTI lot size are quite different. 1 lot at WTI are equal to 0.01 lot size while traded normal currencies.

simple method , see the red box, and you'll figure out what kind of trading system it is.

not quite aware about the exit plan, but never thought breakout system would given any good result, on Oil price are no exception. it's a common use trading method, unless you're willing to share more detail information upon these method .
are these manually trade or automatic one ? as long as it's not martingalish one I'd gladly to give it a try.

as for now I use partial close combine with lock profit as exit method. for example when I use 100 lot at specific pips gain it took half lot size and closed. and for the rest use trail to prevent losign pips gain.
these are not martingale one, no worries. unfortunately these system are under forward tested performance with several account, oil price only, including WTI at tickmill. and seem I dont have obligate to share any trading system since these board also has commerce section. found several case at ff when people got kicked to comm section while having share their trading system at public section.

I notice the lot size too while check on tickmill platform, at first I thought it could be just same as normal curency pair. and glad to hear the trade are not martinglish type, better keep me update the current result, or if you dont mind please share investor password, it's would be much easier for me to monitored your current WTI trading performance.
partial close are good, and you leave the rest with trailing, what do you intend to by using such method. it could be much easier when leave it all with intial tp/sl level, such a waste I think.

current result WTI trade on tickmill, seem bit lame only 13 trades been made. will send you the investor pass, better check your PM .
the idea behind partial close and moving stop loss (not ordinary trailing step), is to secure part of the profit, and leave the rest open wide for higher profit state.
half active lot, are equipped with higher target level, I also thinkin to use stop lock level only.
