  • 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.

Price..

now is out of the daily Kumo - south.
So 9350 could make a new turning point to come back to 9600 - resistance by then.
From there some lower levels might be seen.

At least the uncertainty within Kumo is now the past.

Good trades

You know for next year not to bother trading May, June or July- as there have been no profits made in those 3 months?

The idea is brillant - but the market is not repeating always at the same time.
My view is on the volume on the initial balance. There are times where the
limit is not not reached and no trades are being taken (summer especially).
We could see much more volume this year in the last two months than the
year before. This is a result of the many wars around the world right now.
But making a rule for summer time is a bit risky.
Telling here in the thread that as long price is in daily kumo means staying
at the sidelines if one is a bit risk averse.
Looking at the results described here over the last 2,5 years we are still on
track.

Finally...

..the long awaited downmove happened - OUT of the cloud south - means 200 points
south of the bottom of the cloud in the daily chart (@9600).
Of course this is a missed opportunity - but I am never looking back ;D
No trade tomorrow anyway - as the range passed my 150 points limit today also!

Now for the next few weeks down to 9350 is obvious before a pullback could occur
to not more than 9612 as mentioned in earlier posts.
All assumptions out of the Ichimoku settings in the daily.

My next trade will be on friday in a week - so keep on trying.
Have a great week and come back!

Hi @redgreen

Congrats for 50 points today!!
I did nothing - so nothing lost :-)
But in fact it was the last day of the month and some movement
at this level was indeed obvious.
Next week will give some down again - for tomorrow I would not
recommend to trade.

Have a great Swiss National Day tomorrow!
And a happy long weekend
