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.

GFIs1

Hopefully it will - there is a great deal of room until 9550 to run. But it might just gyrate until ECB or even NFP.

Trade to live. Not live to trade.

It will...
Wednesday under these circumstances are normally short.
We had no extended down. There is the cloud @ 9900 (hourly).
If diving in we could see some more points down.
So just let wednesday start and watching IB.
Then it will be interesting if Thursday gives another bigger move.

Good trades
GFIs1

edit: expecting close of FDAX tonight @ 9906 area or opening tomorrow

That's powerful, thanks!

BTW, do you consider IB in DAX being 9 to 920 or 9 to 930?

It depends on the first 30 minutes on IB (cash hours):
price being within TODAY's range:
red means short 09:30 to 15:30
and green means short 10:30 to 14:30
BUT ATTENTION
There are other rules that can be higher rated - and will jump in

**Only considering IB first 30 minutes.. but in context

Wednesday

Today a Dax trade will be taken.
Outlook: Not much upmove expected. Tomorrow ECB decision 13:45 so traders might
be sitting a bit on hands.
On the lower part the 9900 should be taken out before new ATH's are seen.
Today no big news.
US and Asia had not shown much volatilty.

Statistical thoughts about Wednesday

My trades on Wednesdays are mostly short.
As trading normally Monday, Wednesday and Friday - these are the days getting
the most points.
My statistics over 3 years now show that on Wednesdays I collected 40% of the total points.
The wednesday rules are good and stable. Second best is Friday and then Monday.
Some few trades on both other days are not of importance.
So think of the Wednesday short: Don't swim against the stream!

Good trades

Thursday


GFIs1 View Post
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.
GFIs1

Today's trade was nothing to take...
Tomorrow on ECB announcement a trade will be taken:
From 09:30 to 13:00 which is out of eventually shaking ECB on 13:45.
This might be the last trade of the week then.

GFIs1

Now:
Draghi made it! It was shakin'!
New High @ 10107 pushed in seconds by some big players
to fall down like a stone ;D
Was best to not have the fingers burned.

No trade tomorrow: actual day range over 226 points already (14:57h)
