  • 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.

Expecting a wednesday retracement in the DAX

Futures Edge on FIO
Heavy down-move in the DAX after a long holiday weekend.
Drive came later than foreseen in the morning and with the US numbers the DAX lost more than 3%
at the end of the day.

For Wednesday I expect some retracement in the morning.
So this trade should start long from 09:30 to around 13:30h.
Details will be clear tomorrow.

Good trades

Retracement in the DAX came as expected.

No GFIs1 trade today - because had no access to realtime data this morning.

For those who are long now - the rule exit time is 13:30 here.

Good trades!

GFIs1

after 13:30 - exit was a good point - 6712 had been reached. This is a resistance
point. Some rolling back this afternoon is therefore possible.

Thursday trade long from 09:30 to 12:00

entry @ 6722

exit @

result: stopped out. minus 30 points

Entry time was 30 minutes early. Direction over all is ok.
Daily candles are in the red Kumo - so the exact time for entry
do differ from normal rule time. Need to review on this one.

DAX triangle

Today's chop chop in the DAX does not really help to see the trend.
There is (see chart) this moment building up a nice Diamond..
which will be hopefully finished by tomorrow before US numbers.
At the end of a diamond the price is moving either up or down - outside
of this diamond level. This should happen in the pink oval...
In our case as daily price is in the red (short) Kumo - I expect
some down movement by tomorrow afternoon.

Only some view from another angle in the big picture.

Trading the triangle..

.. is offtopic on this thread - but taking the opportunity to
trade this nice range around 40 points gives some nice return.

Will give a final chart of this triangle tomorrow - hopefully
with good bouncing borders :-)
