Sorry @GFIs1, but I looked and can't seem to find the answer. Did you start your contest combine yet?

Hi @tturner86
Unfortunately there is no way to start it for me..
Was talking to different people of TopstepTrader but they have no possibility to let me trade the Dax during the
combine. They say not having the datafeed. But the funded traders do have...
Maybe I have to wait long enough?

Good trades

Have you thought about trading a different product for the combine?

Yes - I thought about it too.
The one thing which is hindering me: I have a system based on patterns in the Dax
that I found over the years. For a different instrument they are not usable.
Plus my time to trade and to invest for a search for patterns in another instrument
is very limited...
..a trader's dilemma

Wednesday trade

Too high vola to trade here the normal system trades...
Monday had Hi/Lo of 380 and Tuesday of 358 points in the Dax.
This means for GFIs1 to switch into the other new Dax thread with journal**
- and play the Walzer :-)

As on Friday will be the triple witch and the December contract will end @ 13:00h
I will switch TOMORROW to the march15 future contract.

Good trades!
GFIs1

Friday trade

..can not take place - first we have had a high vola week and yesterday's
Hi/Lo during cash hours was 173 points.
So no friday trade :-)
Today triple witch: at 13:00 the Dax december contract will end.
Some bigger moves before that event is very possible.
High volume during IB now in the march contract: > 10K

Hi GFs1 or other DAX traders,

What are your thoughts on trading the DAX over the Christmas holiday period? I have never traded it over this period before

Hi @pvlee
From now until after new year we will have a very low volume period.
My experience about that time: only losses - as some "bigger hands" can shake you out with one wipe.
I recommend to read the futures.io (formerly BMT) posts or some books about trading and let the live show to others.

Happy Christmas
GFIs1

Dear Market Wizard GFIs1

I like this appropriate title because you earn it so much.
Thanks for your courage to give us vision, info and trade possibilities.

Wish you a new fantastic year 2015 in your private life with family and wine-activities.
But also new courage to have another winning challenge over our prodigy product the "DAX"

Monday trade


Dax short 09:30 to 16:00

entry @ 9910
exit @ 9894
result 16 points

IB ok

With this high risk trade ends a turbulent year in the Dax.
Only some points squeezed out of this undecided long day.
Tomorrow no trade - exchange will close 14:00!
