egal was man da macht ist einfach ein schrott markt der überhaubt keine rolle im weltgeschen spielt da ist verarschung an die tagesordnung bei den Volumen

Ja, dass habe ich auch observiert. Aber ich denke dass is fur ALLE Futures Handel weil die Borse neue Regeln gestattet hat fur die Mitglieder. Wie Darkrooms, Icebergs usw. So dass ist nich neu fur FDAX allein. (Sorry for my bad German )

O.k. I will write in English, goes faster for me.

I did some research about Order Flow software and Volume Software on Futures. Since I trade for many years, mainly forex and cfd's, in the long past I did trade FDAX before, then in DM at 25 DM per point. Then the market was not so sophisticated, at least one could as an Intrad Day Trader easily trade from a 5 minute chart like S&P and ES at the time too.

However, since trading became more off floor, on ALL world exchanges from early 1990's onward ... the game has changed all over. HFT came into play, among them 3 market maker firms from Holland EOE by the way ... and so the playing field changed and the exchanges adapted new rules for their members. And these rules allow for all these weird behaviors in futures trading. Icebergs, hidden orders, etc. (read some stuff on the Internet about this)

Speed has become for one the game (and now Intel designed a new flash memory, by the way that is even 1000 x more fast ... so hold your seat belt ! on the speed of trading in the future ...) and thus you can now only really understand what goes on by looking very close at very low time frames like 15 S to M1 . Other software for trading for scalpers like Bookmap, Jigsaw, Dome's (second, by second following what is going on) came into the market and many other scalping software (not for me)

So that is what you'r up to. And you are right the size of volume of FDAX compared to ES or S&P is and always has been lower. That will always stay like that. Same if you compare the German Stock Exchange with Wallstreet on volume.

So, this is what I mean in a nutshell in the last remark. Futures trading has become even more sophisticated but then also more complicated, and risky then say 20 years earlier. On the other side the technology has helped a lot to try to stay ahead of the game.

DAX TICK or TRIN?

I have started looking at the individual members of the DAX to try to catch deviations in and the futures like the TICK for S&Ps. I don't have an indicator but I have an idea of how to do it though not any time soon. To be specific, I'm starting to keep an eye on the top 10 members, which equal ca. 66% of the DAX market value and try to find deviations to DAX. Does anyone do this? or know of a website that has an indicator like the TICK?

my source for data:
DAX Marktkapitalisierung | Gewichtung DAX-Werte - boerse.de

If you want to do some testing with the "official" XETRA data, you can use the IB symbols TICK-IBIS and TRIN-IBIS.
(IBIS was the predecessor of XETRA and the symbols weren't renamed.)

my FDAX musings.

Here are some ideas with some random lines representing the next big central bank meetings & price levels. Not nearly as nice as the master works from @ratfink, but its what I can cobble together on TWS!

Two ideas:
The bearish-bull case
The bullish case.

Last week has been consolidation after the big pushes up after the last ECB mtg.

For the bearish-bull case, price is +2,25 std from 20MA on Daily, wednesday's price reversed below Monday's high and price will retrace for a leg down towards mean.
For the hyper-bullish case, triangle is forming with higher lowers over last week so break out possible

Friday was an inside day of Thursday and Thursday was inside Wednesday so expansion is expected.

BOJ => no changes last meeting but inflation is zero so next meeting a change?

ECB => Super Mario is talking about expanding QE in December.

FOMC => seems to be 50/50 for rate rise in December.

The bulls seem to be in control....where are the bears?? In any case I'll wait for the market to tell me the direction.
