Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • 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'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Thanks for compliments

In fact - I was checking my best weekdays to trade the Dax
with this system.
Found that Wednesdeay is the best (counting 18 months) where
trades gave double of Monday and of Friday - over all weeks.

In this case...
a) sleep well on Sunday
b) do not get up on bloody Mondays
c) stretch all day long on Tuesdays
d) Put ALL IN on Wednsdays...
and
e) spend all gain on the long weekend

Thank for this thread and your great work !

Dax eating 9K now?

After having seen some impressive upmoves recently, we are now exactly
before killing the 9'000 in the DAX. Another ATH then.
If it is seen today - ok.
In any case some pullback will arrive tomorrow.
Up to the moment the day had a range of 127 points - a trade
tomorrow will be ok.

Good trades

9K not ready now

Have checked the Fib Levels for the Dax out of the last movements here:
Seems that 9K is not ripe just now.
Fib-Levels are
61,8%: 8'999
100%: 9'142
161%: 9374

Some extra bullish power needed to reach next levels above.

Normally the bigger moves in the Dax are seen on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
This week the first attempt to kill 9K was on Tuesday with a big boost.
Tomorrow Friday we will see IFO numbers (10:00).

Scenario could be: today attempt to make the jump over 9K - turning at 9033.
Friday's IFO is then alreday "included" and some retracing under 9K could
finish this shaky week.

Good trades

Friday trade

Above scenario did not really work..
There was a peak in the Dax future over 9000 yesterday @ 12:08 but closed quickly lower. The
Dax itself did only reach 12 points under 9K.

Today is IFO day (good numbers expected).

Dax long 09:30 to 14:30
entry @ 8958
exit @ 8995
result plus 37
signal not so strong - SL tight

Attempts to take out 9000 were crippy!

@xelaar


Good possible that today it works...
a) end of week
b) US numbers 14:30 (should be good as well)
c) the Dax future broke it already shortly - the Dax can follow now

GFIs1

edit - the beast did it 13:20
