Tracy @chigrl – Professional Oil Futures Trader
Today we had a very knowledgeable guest when it comes to day-trading oil. She is a professional futures trader who’s built a career around the oil markets.
We discuss the many reasons why oil has moved back to $40 and what would indicate the next moves.
Tracy explains the benefits of using Market Profile and how it identifies tops and bottoms. She also tells us why $40 oil is not having a major impact on the equities markets.
Finally, she reveals a “break-even” graph helps her gauge the fundamentals in the oil industry.
