  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You find the entire daily range tradeable ?

I'd be interested to see one of your (traded) 5 second FDAX charts, if you care to post one - & is your daily goal still 2R (10 points), or so ?

My Pal do not confuse the daily range and the daily price movement together. They are 2 very different things.

Sure I can post nice pictures for you and show some statistics but I can tell you that you have to widen your picture a little a bit more. What does not work for you definitely does not mean it will not work for others. It is just you man.

We all have our differencies and we see things from different angles.

My 90% focus is in execution and minimizing my own errors. Setups and things like that are not so important (<10% maybe). These of course are not anything exact numbers but tells something about the priorities and weights.

Just wanted to see how wide stops you are setting for your initial losses. IMO you do not have to complain yourself setting daily goals too high

Peace !

btw. im trading from 2 tick range bars they fits better to my trading methods and strategy. Inlitial stoplosses between 8 to 16 ticks. Im talking about FDAX.

I certainly agree with you there.

I asked because seeing others' actual trades is what (a great part of) this forum is all about.

Otherwise it's hard to tell who's just talking the talk (not saying that's you, btw, 'cos I simply have no idea).....

no problem at all.

I personally do not put ppl into any categoria. I am thankful for any information you give me. What I am going to do with this information it depends...

Anyway FDXM is a great new tool for Dax traders and it seems it is received very well. Will see how it develops in future.

Switched this week to FDXM.

Volume today as of 09.20 Central Time (last price > volume today > % change > 14 day ATR) :

Very promising to see this is starting to gain some traction. It is very exciting for those of who are freaked out by the size of the current DAX contract.

Thank you for sharing.

Still having faith in 'mini FDAX' is a great product ?

Volume wise it is not improving anymore. Spreads is all over ridiculous and not getting better. Even some CFD broker have much better spreads. It's just a self-service for some you already hate.

Exacly like gboos - few trader's migrate to mini from ,,big'' one ...and thats all.
Best way is to combine new product's of 2015 - Mini Kospi and mini dax.Kospi is closed market - only IB give access to it while almost every broker got mini dax.Result ? Mini Kospi is almost two times more liquid then Mini Dax on many days.CFD on Dax is way better then Dax on Eurex.0.9 point - it is my all cost on CFD while on Fdax spread itself could be 2 or 3 points.

Hi Inverter, not sure what you meant by "good movement chart better...mdax" ???

Anyway, I have tried the emini Nikkei. It is very liquid and the order book inside Bookmap (using CQG data) is very good.
In fact, it is not limited to 10 or 15 levels of depth so you can see adding/subtracing a long way from current price.
I would say the claim by AMP that it is as liquid as ES is almost true, but not quite.

The Interactive Brokers depth data is not as good and I would not use that inside Bookmap but their executions are fine.
