Hi @ChannelTrader

I am using Linnsofts InvestorRT for the bigger picture as well some Ichimoku Charts for support/resistance
as well as a five day profile for the "faster" areas... just browse a bit through the journal to watch mentioned
charts.
For trading the system in this journal here - there is no specific need of a chart though:
Just the rules and a calculator - thats all!

Dax short 9:30 to 14:30

***result 104 points

GFIs1

Day range around 275 points... (not EOD yet)
and only that little?
Yes - the outcome of the US numbers this afternoon was not clear
so the profit was of the Dax movement before US only.

Now looking forward to the next week:
Don't wait to see a trade here before Wednesday!

Happy weekend!

Dax bigger picture Jan 2014

Are you a NinjaTrader user?

 
Today - the price of the Dax future was diving through TenkanSen and
landed softly in the last trading minute on the KijunSen which is a major support
in this phase using Ichimoku:

The daily chart shows this rare long downmove as a consolidation in this strong bullish move.

From this point some upmove within the next 2 trading days are highly probable - and as YOU
can guess GFIs1's wednesday will then be the next short
(looking at all january trades more winners came from short trades despite the bulls)

Quite a heavy move in one day.

11K dollars IS a great win per car if you take the full range of the day :-)
BUT - if you are betting on the false direction - the loss would be the same height
Therefore during volatile days (expecting to see some more this week) it is
important to use SL wisely.

Today a Dax short from 09:30 to 15:30

entry @ 6355

exit @ 6385 (SL)

result minus 30 points

GFIs1

comment: yesterday's hi/low range was very near my 150points no-go rule..

Just a quick question- why move the stop to 30 points? I thought the rule was 15 point stop??


Thanks

Colin
