Big Picture scenario Dec 2013 to Jan 2014

Looking at the Dax chart with Ichimoku there are some important points reached right now. The red and supporting Kumo (cloud) is now exhausting and forming a Dinosaur head. At the same time with today’s price red TenkanSen and blue KijunSen lines formed a cross - means a price reversal.
Green lagging ChikouSpan is moving to the blocked area of Tenkan and Kijun.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Scenario for price into January:
1) interim low is reached now - some slight upmove for year end to (blue Kijun) @ 9206 is foreseen!
2) From January price might fall and cross red Kumo until mid January at the thinnest point to come down to the same level as Chikou will have resistance @ 8796.
3) A quick reversal from there to resistance of Kumo @ 8958 area is of short interval until
4) the next down leg (this one longer) should reach first goal of @ 8435 eventually @ 8356.

The described scenario is highly probable. The picture is great for Swing traders.
Some day to day analysis is necessary to see at which point the big picture is no longer valid.
Keep alerted for the next review.

Good trades

Looking at Tuesday

Just reviewing Monday's straight strong move up to now (15:00h): update 17:30

Day range: 181 points 197 points
Volume low: <60K 85K
Difficulties: - FED news Wednesday, - last week before Christmas

Hint for Tuesday:
NO trade (rules) as range is >150 points
highly possible chop chop before FED announcements
9206 should be reachable - maybe on Wednesday

Best to stay at the sideline and protecting capital.

Had been asked if these points are on ONE contract:

YES -
ALL results in this THREAD are on ONE contract Dax Future.

Wednesday trade


Dax long from 10:30 to 14:30

entry @ 9150
exit @ 9182
result plus 32 points

Today is IFO day and in the evening FED announcement.
Friday then triple witch - so some volatility expected.

GFIs1

for the brave wanting to see some more points: go long 15:30 to 17:00

PS: this was the last trade December 13 Future - next on Friday will be the March 14 Future

PS II @podski: today was one of the rare Wednesday exceptions
