fdax is wild west you need a big account and a lot of nerve..

in my opinion simulation is good for practice but has nothing to do with the real thing and its emotional swings

why dont you try the bund with bigger size?

I trade 3:1 Momentum set ups with 7 - 10 point stops and 21 to 30 point initial targets.

Here is a 2.0 Renko of the DAX Images | ChartHub.com

I am trading from 5s OHLC bars and using 5 point initial stop losses. Depending of the type of the trading day scalping 2R or more.

FDAX if very efficient vehicle when traded "properly" (=trader knows well his/her system)

This morning...What happened?


Hi Folks,

Im trying to find out what caused the spike in the FDAX chart this morning (23rd July 2014) which seems to have kicked off at 9am Frankfurt time (8am London). I cant see anything on Fx Factory or Daily Fx.

Would appreciate anyone's input here.

Thanks..

DAX Trader here, via FXCM and Spot, 1 pip spread on FXCM just makes it too easy

Trades well from open to UK close, 1 minute charts for me, think I'm on 9 trades this week with only 1 loser, she's predictable at times, highly predictable, german efficency at it's best

Hi Turveyd,

do you have any idea why the FDAX had that big uplift this morning around 8am London time?

Just UK Open I think, maybe that's when German markets open proper ?? if you check back you'll see a lot of similar spikes at 8am, I wouldn't hold over that time, looks like your SL will fare badly to me.

I don't start trading until 9am area.

Good point and thanks for that. I assume you mean you dont trade the fdax until after 9am London time?

I would be interested to learn of any other ways you might share as to how to avoid similar spikes during the fdax session?

Also do you think there are any other instruments that have similar characteristics/volatility/ability for reversion as the fdax?

Thanks..

I wouldn't say it has been a spike; about 0.5%, 50 points, relative not instant. About two months ago we had an instant 2% down, it really looked as spike.

I think it just has been a flip, in this case up. Why?. Perhaps it was clear for big players that certain big Markets wanted to go up and FDAX joined the movement.

(Always IMO)

By other way; "ability for reversion as the fdax". Are you sure?. IMO again, I would say just "some" ability for reversion.

Yes I agree "some" would be a better choice of words. Its just that the fdax has a pretty unique and volatile movement in it that typically goes very well with the reversion type strategy I usually run on it. Im currently trying to find a way to head off those events where the fdax just takes off in a fairly straight line and doesn't even look back over its shoulder. If I could get that fixed Id be fine. Not sure if volume/tick analysis will be of use but will probably have to give it a go at least even just to eliminate it. All my entries are counter trend type which work great the vast majority of the time, until they dont...!!!.

It's not that Spikey generally so after 9am GMT so wouldn't worry about it to much.

Remember, Spikes can go in your favour, so they kinda balance each other out.
