so I typed CL, got November and December choices. Which one? I have no clue. So I chose December, just like ES. Some bidding and asking numbers popped up, seemed working...... But then I thought November, so I chose it too, and some bidding and asking numbers popped up, interesting...... I looked at the volume, November has a bigger volume, so I decided to trade November CL. The more traders, the better. Did I make a right decision so far? I knew that inventory report was coming out, so I waited until that minute. Suddenly it dropped like a rock........ It was my first time trading CL, I was adjusting my chart......., so I hesitated a few more seconds when it was dropping, and shorted at about the bottom of that drop: 69.28, then it started to climb up, back to 69.50s within 3 or 4 minutes. I thought I was going to be killed if CL bounced back to 70. But I got lucky, second wave of selling saved me, and I covered at 69.25. Whew, what a relief. OK, that was my first time trying CL. Did I select the right month (November)? Anyone trading December? Also, about NG, which month is a good choice: October, November or December?
