  • 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.

Always market price - the times I enter and exit a trade the market is normally quite liquid.
Plus I need a veryfiable price which I have to state here

Hi GFIs1,

Thanks, and have a nice weekend

Hi GFIs1,

Thanks, and have a nice weekend

we had 2 main occurences
1) little witch day 13:00
2) quite a up gap in difficult area plus low volume
This was a warning to take a trade...
or to give noise more room at least

Looking at this moment right now - the volume has not even
hit 50K - which is at a normal day >90K - one can see that
we are IN THIN AIR right now!

some weeks with drawdowns are still calculated to happen.

the VOL is very low indeed, i got a perfect signal at 9612.5 (2 5' bars on high vol) but because of the low vol later i got out with a very small profit. Should have stayed in the trade tho. Better luck next week

Have a nice weekend

Influence

I've been sitting quietly (as requested quite rightly by other members) and observing. In my view "closing the gap" before the US market opens and the massive influence of the US market needs to be considered.

In fact US futures and then Dax futures are joined at birth.

Don't shoot me down but I strongly suggest trying to incorporate these elements into your trading model, if you haven't already.
