Unexpected Huge Drawdown caused a large spike in Oil today, BUT, when was this news actually Trade-able?? The first arrow long drawn in was what I consider to be a "reasonable" amount of time and price movement after news has been released and the market clearly knows what it wants to do. If you are laser focused and have an excellent execution DOM and are ready to pull the trigger on CL, you could have caught the longs earlier and in this case would have been OK, however, how many times is this NOT the case????
