This question might come up for every reader:
Does this guy trade what he announces?
To answer this question here - this is the thread about ONE DAX trade..
For once in this thread I am showing you this:
My trades are set up to the clock. This means to enter or to exit a trade
EXACTLY to the time wanted (as announced per post BEFORE taking the trade).
This order is always a market order and may have some slip. So are
the final results shown here.
Of course this helps me to let the trade play out without being online and
on screen during this previewed time. Much more relaxing of course.
So my trades may have a negative outcome - which is shown here
as an example for those who are questioning.
In the trade of today you can see the precise order fillings (:00) which are only
to reach if you put the order by time and not by manual clicking - manually you will
in most of the cases never get the order filled to the second...

Which broker do you use where an order can be placed and exited on a time basis? Is there any manipulation of prices on the brokers part as they can move prices around. I certainly notice that with IG.
This is with Interactive Brokers - the trades are always placed market +/- 1 point slippage.
No trading against the broker (as you may have seen with your's) as the time order is going through
You may try it out on a sim account to get some experience.
If you read the journal from the beginning you will see many inputs to your question.
This system is determined by the DAY of the week and some "looking back" to the last
trading days - especially volume and cash hours bandwidth.
Then the special essence is given by the Ichimoku cloud - here the one of the daily chart as well
as the 1h chart are important to shift the time for entry and exit.
Stops are set upon the situation - be it near a support / resistance or normal (30 points outside noise
setting). This means here in our DAX future case EUR 750 risk per car.
To make it short: entry and exit TIME is determined BEFORE a trade is started.
GFIs1 - hope this helps

A short placed every wednesday at 09.30 CET using a stop of 30 ticks would of produced 765 points this year to date.Exiting at 14.30 CET. ( Excluding todays result ).
Ps have you no considered putting a target price in for your positions as this would further increase the profitability eg say a target of 80 fat ticks.As many times has your position been 60 ticks in profit, but no profit has been taken and your 30 tick stop loss has been hit unfortuntely.
Just a thought to try to make the system more efficient.
