Dear followers and thread readers

I was very pleased to start this journal some weeks ago.
It gave me a lot of great input and motivation.
Plus a lot of thanks and replies on futures.io (formerly BMT).
As said - appreciated greatly!

Now...
I would be very thankful to get some feedback from followers concerning:
• what did GFIs1' input bring to your personal trading
• which thoughts influenced your trading plan
• is a futures.io (formerly BMT) / twitter input helpful for the future?

any comments welcome

GFIs1

Week 14 - the new quarter..

..will begin with a GFIs1 DAX long from 10:30 to 13:00.
Interestingly the DAX closed the quarter after a nice rally under 7000.
Today the DAX is back above 7000 again.

Good trades

GFIs1

...
• what did GFIs1' input bring to your personal trading
..

A reminder to look at some old ideas again. I don't trade the Dax and I do not trade mechanically but using some probabilities might help.

Most I'm interested whether there is a relationship between day of the week and the day having its low first and then move to its high and vice versa. Or whether a certain number of up/down days implies a reversal.

Currently I have not collected enough data. Doing so manually is cumbersome and error prone. Have to - at least partially - automate it.

I'm also looking at the duration of the cycles from high to high and so on.

But all of this has a low priority. If Eastern is cold and rainy - I'll see.

Currently I use the simplest and most effective assumptions of all: just assume that the next day is of the same type as the current one. Or: the trend is your friend - until it changes.

There are many relationships of day of the week and similar movements as I could see from my statistics.
The most obvious is the wednesday where about 95% of the "second wave" are a short.
Can only encourage to find more of these patterns within the weekdays.
As I stated in earlier posts there are some special obvious patterns on the last of a week, month or triple
witch - which give normally some very good results.

Thanks for the input and the trend following trading idea
