  • 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.

Offtopic Tennis Daviscup Final



mokum View Post
Congratulations with your first Swiss Copa Davis GFI
It was a special one because it completes the big list of honors of tennis from Federer.
A real dream came true from "Der Kaiser in Tennis"

Thanks @mokum
Great that you follow from Thailand this normally exclusive European Tennis Cup.
You are right - Switzerland had the very rare constellation to bring 2 topten players
into the finals - that helped enormously for this winning streak.
The French in the final had all signs for them: first they could choose the (sand) place
which the Swiss do not really like and second they had the final in their own country.
As for my village guy Roger - he is sure the King of Tennis and as it looks now he will
not quit soon. But in fact for the Daviscup it was Stan Wawrinka who pushed for the Cup.

GFIs1 who is looking forward to the next great GrandSlams

Weekly overview

Today (Monday) price was caught in a narrow range - no real trend to see.
10K out of discussion during the day. Volumes in the 30min up and down
from 2,5K to over 10K.
As the morning bullish move did not see any continuation I am aware of
a special high probable scenario:
MOVES on Tuesday and Thursday (ECB day).
Could mean tomorrow bullish - and a reversal on Thursday.
With this view a Wednesday and Friday trade will not move really either.
Like today.
I will follow tomorrow's move.

Another push up but already stalled, doesn't look like it will convert into a strong trend day.

perhaps just a range bound day, it will find a low and come back to the open price or a little below.

next

Quick outlook (the above trade is still running):
1) 10K hit
2) ATH (10050) not reached and lower volumes now
3) quick down under 10K
4) no news
5) looks like a day Hi/Lo bigger than 150 points

So next level to reach today: 9890 ---> best point to take profit
With this we will have no trade tomorrow but on Thursday

Wednesday trade


Will happen - because today the price range was not above limit.
So tomorrow again a short foreseen. Looking at gap, intial range (IB) and
then the volume of course.
If everything is fine - the trade will start.
