Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • 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.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

ECB day

Today ECB announcement 13:45 - shaking highly probable..

Frankfurt stock exchange spoke about Market Sentiment Index:
private sector bullish 21 points
institutional sector bullish 9 points

This is NOT what I think about the bigger picture:
Price is in daily Kumo and normally does not get out on the upper side (closing price).
So some more downmoves until end of October are quite possible.
Assuming this scenario I would be very careful with longs right now.

Just some thoughts

Draghi made it possible today and sent Dax quickly down after comments

Now the way down to 89xx is open and could build a "W" in the daily.
Just careful watching what happens.

Hi Market Sniper

Yes - nothing official traded.. Derivatecheck.de does not show the
holiday - sorry for confusion.
BNP Parisbas shows some trades - price jumped up to 9333 actually.
But my broker does not show any activity as well.

So wait for Monday - and have a great weekend!

DAX Trading Calendar

The DAX trading Calendar is not immediately obvious.

Sometimes it is a German holiday but the markets are open. This is true for all regional holidays and some national ones.

The best/only reference really is to look at the trading calendar for the DAX on the Eurex website. Navigation to the relevant info is a bit tricky.



General Eurex Homepage

DAX Futures Page

Eurex Holiday Regulations


The only days in 2014 where the DAX isn't available to trade are:
Jan 1: New Year's Day
April 18: Good Friday
April 21: Easter Monday
May 1: Bank Holiday
October 3: German Reunification Day - Bank Holiday
December 24,25,26,31: Christmas and New Year

The official 2015 Holiday Regulations page has not been updated however the calendar has.

The following is the very unofficial list of days when the market is closed.

Jan 1 2015: New Year's Day
April 3: Good Friday
April 6: Easter Monday
May 1: Bank Holiday
December 24,25,31: Christmas and New Year
This of course doesn't mean that there is the required volume to make things happen on all other days.

Monday trade


Dax reached the point of 93xx as we had seen on Friday on some brokers.
Today will no trade take place as Friday was a holiday and Thursday had
this sharp downmove.

Good trades
