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.

GFI - thanks for the input; can you expand on "daily Kumo" - are you referring to cloud patterns? These cloud patterns are calculated via moving averages (between 9 - 26 - 52 days from what I've seen before???). Do you have any reference material on the "daily Kumo"?

Do you use gap trading at the heart of your system?

Thanks again

GR

That rule set could be expanded with:
3. If opening price starts in daily Kumo then no gap trade

This helps you to omit loss in rough water.

Kumo or Cloud is part of the Ichimoku system and as you state this is what I am integrating for my core rules.
Meaning passing a "cloud" in a plane is about the same here in trading to see some turbulence aka "Blind Flight".
You will find these daily charts with Kumo if you search within this thread for "big picture" or "bigger picture".
Of course there is a lot of material about Ichimoku and clouds - depends on what you are looking for - the
technical aspect or how to trade it. There is a book from Karin Roller (which I have not read though) and she
is giving out a interesting Dax forecast every second day: DAX Tageschart Ichimoku-Analyse | vtad in german.
See this technical page and find a video describing details: Investor/RT - Ichimoku Kinko Hyo

About the gaps you are asking - these are important points to decide "when" to start a trade. As I am not trading
the gaps itself in the system here they still influence the starting points as well as the direction. My entry is never
before 09:30. So the gap itself is not part of the trade.
You can see that I am not looking for a fixed point goal but a good result with high probability and stops outside noise.

If you are looking for guys trading the gap you will find for threads here too.

Definition of the GAP


There are many definitions for gaps in total.
MY definition is based on this:
- only looking at cash trading hours
- measuring the Hi/Lo of the previous day

If price is within the previous day range I see NO gap even
if opening price is gapping to the close of yesterday.
If price is outside the previous day range there is a gap.

Then there are occurences within the first 30 minutes of the opening
where I look if the price has come back to previous day's range or not.
A second part is to see if the opening price is outside of 100% of previous
day's range.
All these tiny parts are important to see a highly probable direction for the
next 2 to 5 hours - as the "runner" should not be taken out too early.

Taking all things together to a "system" - we are only looking for patterns
under certain conditions.

I have just consulted my glass ball - stating:

After having made enough to quit trading - I will first visit Mike in Equador for a COLD BEAR, thanks etc.
and then move on further to retire on Mauritius...
No need for more forums..

GFIs1

My sincerest congratulations for this achievement!

no rule would have given a positive result.

So stay at the sidelines to watch this ride

DAX CHART: Tuesday 4th Feb

Interesting chart today. Lots of strength on both FTSE & DAX first part of the morning session especially after a big fall on the Japanese market (3.6% and 100 point drop after the bell). 10:45 am CET the drop begins., with a low of circa 9070. The direction then changes with a high at circa 4:00 pm CET 9166, then the market weakens as the DOW runs out of puff. After the bell the strength of the DOW pulls up the DAX.

Interesting point the close of Monday 3rd Feb 9186 was not closed missing by 20 points!

Well done to those that caught the long bus at 9070!
