Trading (CL) on A EIA Petroleum Status Report Day

I felt really good about today, I didn't have a clue about the direction CL would go after the EIA Petroleum Status Report was released, did not want my bias to cloud my judgment. I was confident in my preparation before the trade as you can see on the chart. I  highlighted the 1st hour of the market open and the area of congestion, made a few quick trades, the volatility took out my tight "profit stop", with each trade, my stop was hit quickly. as I type this, I am tempted to get in again, maybe CL will reach R2?

I'm posting this chart early because I will be shutting down all charts and market data to ensure I am not going to be participating any longer in this market... with fewer oil supplies, it would be easy to conclude that a trader should just be long CL and disregard using a stop because this market is bullish... maybe? However, when maybe enters into my trading strategy, I might as well go to the casino... or play the lottery (think I'll go out today and buy myself a ticket).
