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.

Thanks @choke35. This is exactly what is meant here: Volume low..
But the direction is very clear.
Good trades

hi GFI
nice job. was verry close to the stop :-)
I put it too close and stopped out...

what does that jump mean? was this for collecting the stops and now turning down?

stop loss

Hi,

I watch your journal for some time now.
Following your rules with discipline is a major task.
Also the idea of one trade per day is important, in order to avoid costly overtrading.
The biggest problem (with me at least) is the stop-loss placement. Is it possible for you, when mentioning your entry points, to mention your stop-loss point also? Or do you have fixed stop-loss points? (eg 20 or 30 or 40 points)

Thanks,Alex

Hi @redgreen
Kleiner Verfall heute 13h..

That made the price balancing around ATH and after witch minute (13:00h) it gave a spike up
in taking a sneak preview on what the financial ministers in Brussels will decide after 16h today
concerning extra money to make the Greeks happy. This all went with extraordinary volume..

Looking forward for more normal markets to come.. 12K and more in Dax with this 0% interest
money will not be astonishing.
