Today IFO...

Ifo numbers showed a confident loss - one more - right now.
This could indicate that the investors in german companies could get
some cold feet. Especially over the summer.

One result could be that 10000 in the Dax is quite a number and the price
might dimple there longer than wanted or expected.

Looking at tomorrow:
A down slip is pretty probable.. could hit 200 points.

End of month means end of half year numbers - so be prepared for
some coaster roller.

Hi GFI
did you take the GAP around 08:00 with 9900 into consideration? seems like GAP close now. I am trying again short at 10:30.

Cheers

What was the reason for the tight stop today and....why wasn't it announced before ;-)

The last week before half year results we see some "big" players shaking the markets (read above posts).
Rules may not give desire result under these circumstances. My bigger view for today was a drop -
which was announced with a gap to yesterday.
This scenario did not happen on time previewed. For these cases my stops are tight.
The weeks with triple witch as well as the last weeks of the quarter normally show more volatility.
Be cautious on these days and eventually stay at the sidelines.

In fact today we faced two scenarios:
The one with the announced short early trade
and
one that closes the gap (long 09:30) and shoots until 15:30

The decision was for number one but did not play out well.
In similar scenarios the drop could be seen several times - today not.

No worry - next good chances are around the corner.
