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.

This has in fact happened a lot this year. Although a lot of the DAX movement of late has been reaction to the US markets and therefore in the afternoon or evening.


Do you foresee an impact on the "1 Dax trade per day" strategy or is this a sort of anomaly or simply not interesting ?

There are weeks with only interesting moves on Tuesday/Thursday.
This is not easy to foresee on Monday or precedented Friday.
But if one sees it instead of having not trade I consider to watch Tuesday move
and eventually trade the Thursday then.
Will have a look back in my statistics and then decide.

Thanks podski for input.

Bigger picture

The downmove was quicker in time than foreseen - but not for sure ending here.
The "W" is still possible with a leg up again. As well as a further down to 87xx next.
And from there even lower levels.
The daily volumes during the last 10 days were always increasing - if the next days
show lower volumes some upmove should be more probable.
Volumes in general were quite high - this means some shifting to the downside has
taken place. This could mean to be a longer trend...

Monday trade

Futures Edge on FIO
Interesting - the downleg is still growing. Today started again with a gap down and
it looks as this one will not be closed...

Dax long 09:30 to 14:00

entry @ 8741
exit @ 8839
result 98 points

IB vol high - (caution >10K)

GFIs1

PS: gap closed without problem - so way down from Wednesday is free

That must be a catch of the year! 300 pts move today

Trade to live. Not live to trade.
