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.

ATH trail

As the Draghi money Tsunami has not ended yet:
..we need to kow that
1) Stocks and futures in Europe may rise without any reason
2) normal psychological daily moves are not on the path
3) The new ATH of 13K PLUS is not reached yet
4) everything is on thin ice (even thinner than in the past)
5) normal volume and behaviour will take over when this hype is over too

So have a great weekend and look forward to new highs - as always

More shake-outs of weak hands like Friday would be ideal.
Besides, US markets also suffer from the strong $/xxx.
Nice scenario for higher volatility ahead.

Phew.. I'm glad Mr. DAX got back into his normal groove last week. The previous week's lack of movement and the general tension in the air over the last month has been a bit of a struggle.

NEW rule for ATH

As seen in this thin area..
.. a short trade on normal rules - especially on Mondays where more money flows into the markets -
is extremely risky.

So I am putting in a NEW RULE:

If previous day made a new Alltime High - NO SHORT TRADE.

This will prevent us from being shaken out quickly.

We should not underestimate

..Draghi's QE program starting today for a lot of coming months.

This money flow can drive up European Indices in no time..
So ALL shorts now in the futures are higher risk than longs.

Don't forget

Not only for DAX and European markets, I would imagine.

Maybe this is what market makers want us to think? ATH- all go long, and they squeeze stops down. Today gap down on ETH open. Gaps against a trend tend not to close same day..

Trade to live. Not live to trade.
