Why not simplify the trading rules even more and just place a short on a wednesday?

Its even less comissions for the broker? hahah .Less is more etc.......

Fortunately the broker's fee is not really a weight in the balance: it is only a small
percentage of one point of the future traded.
If I only trade on Wednesday the performance of the system would drop to less than a half
So I am sitting in front of the screen these two extra days per week knowing that the boost
may be a bit lower.

Thx, makes more sense. Is these numbers are in absolute gain in ticks?

...yes of course (for ONE contract always) - you can read here in the thread the daily/weekly and yearly results.
These weekday's are automatically calculated in the spreadsheet when I make new journal entries.
A journal should make the most important parts of your trading readable - of course without a manual input.

On a lazy day


One could get back to some previews of the bigger picture made earlier...
So I am referring to my (at that time) quite adventurous scenario of a drop in the Dax for February 2014
and have posted a chart scenario in this thread:
https://futures.io/trading-journals/17862-gfis1-1-dax-trade-per-day-journal-109.html

Now I have made a short recalculation of this scenario which has played higher but resulted as previewed
mid december.

Calculation goes:
ATH 9794 down to the middle of Kumo (@ 9200) results in 594 points made. The same distance is needed
to see a reversal - thus 9200-594 = 8606. This is the support level to have in mind the next few weeks.
This down move I am expecting within a few days somewhen in february. Right now the price came up
again to the lower Kumo where a hard resistance is seen.

May I ask- why if your trading system is profitable- why do u not reinvest profits and starting trading 2 contracts instead of 1?

This thread is about 1 Dax trade per day - to make it easy to see the results I have broken down to 1 contract shown
in every posting - so are the results.
I am trading different accounts - so the money management tells me how to increase the number of contracts.
This is not the theme here as I want to compare naked results.
Please read also the beginning of the thread (at least the FIRST post)

what is going with the DAX ?

it was immediately a minute before ECB announcement - price dropped from 9180 to 9010
There is a limit in % change in one minute for the Dax - but I have to find it first somewhere.

Looks like we are back to normal right now.
