Looking for trading buddies (FDAX and CL)

As the title says, I am looking for trading buddies. I trade FDAX and CL with a price action and Wyckoff based approach. My main time frame is 5m going for targets 20-60 ticks normally. I am not looking for any drastic changes of my approach/trading style/setups as I am quite happy with the status quo right now. But this doesn't mean that I can't learn and improve and I guess it's always good to hear other oppinions. Furthermore, it can't be wrong to fight the solitude of trading a little. Anyone who can relate to this is very welcome.

P.S. As I don't have a microphone attached to my computer, voice/video chat would be rather boring so text only for the time being...

Hic Rhodos, hic salta.

Ya, I know there are many trading 6e and es around here. 6e I could perhaps put up with, but es...it's just too slow for my time frame.

Cobbler, stick to your trade.

Chart summaries

Hi VVHG

I love your idea. I am happy to share chart thoughts when I can. I have posted some longer term thoughts in my journal https://futures.io/elite-trading-journals/19799-dax-futures-trading-small-income-2.html#post243227

At this stage I could put some thoughts in a chart before Mondays. I have the weekend to sit down with a coffee and think. During the week is still very busy for me with work and family.

Hello ! I just saw your thread. I was thinking the same thing as you ! I decided to google fdax and see what comes up and here I am. I daytrade FDAX fulltime, Also a few CL trades each week. I am an American currently living in Ukraine. Not too many traders here to talk trading with ! lol. I trade using "Price action" from Al Brooks books. Would be happy to chat with you whenever. I use skype during the day for chatting. Or if you have another way let me know. It would great to hear another traders experiences ! I absolutely love the DAX ! I have traded fulltime for 6 years and have alot of experience trading many other markets and none of them I like as much as the DAX. Have a great day ! Steve,

Hey! Fellow Dax trader here. So whats the Wyckoff approach?
I find my best trades often come from trendlines I draw by hand (either on a 3minute candle chart or longer term candle or a tick chart of no greater than 450). My execution is done almost exclusively on a 10 tick chart which I find to be absolutely incredible for predicting price movement.

Love to chat!

Zach

My Setup


Hello vvhg!

I am trading FDAX and CL, only this both instruments at this time. I am scalper for tripple-positions with the targets +9, +16 and +25 ticks, but this parameters are not fix. They are valid for today, tomorrow and perhaps the rest of the week. My setup is an outbreak-stratgy based on a p2-fracture, pushes through a bigger break-p2 on 2-tick-renkobars.

Best regards from Germany
