Hi alex @alexk1968

My entry and exit times come from a pattern system: Every weekday has a different approach.
No gut feeling, no indicators though. Only looking back to previous day(s), today's highly important announcements
as well as holidays influence the trading habits given on that special WEEK-day.
These patterns were chosen out of many and do have some positive track record.
If you read the whole thread (pppphhhh..) you will see in short:
Monday: money flows into the markets: IB makes the direction - rules do the entry exit times
Wednesday: normally after two green days on this day the price is falling - rule defines again when to enter and exit
Friday: normally money goes back to secure cash - so: IB shows the "false direction" - and system is programming the
opposite of that IB 30 minutes.

Easy as that..
with some exceptions of course.

Hope this helps
GFIs1

PS: if you read my thread here you can see my entry time and exit time are announced BEFORE taking the trade...
I put it only in ONE post as it would make this thread otherwise unreadable.

this is to be put into favorities!

Trade to live. Not live to trade.

Tomorrow..

.. we might see some higher levels again!
As the first quarter wants to see good prices at its end.
On wednesday some lower levels could be reached again
as investors take out profits and will not hold a lot over
the long easter period.
Just be aware!
No trade on thursday then until wednesday next week.

Today was a high risk trade:
Normally after the Hi/Lo of yesterday a trade after rules was not permitted.
The uptrend was there on IB though and some indication to see higher levels
was there.
Unfortunately the pushing bullish power exhausted early:

The stop of 30 points is optimized for my time based entry and exit. As the trades are quite
long during the day (normally).
Having the stop more dense it is taken out many times - and the price is again in the intended
direction.
If the stop is set too wide - the negative days weigh to much.

To make it clear: my 30 point stop is optimized with the one trade per day system. It can not been
transferred to another approach.
Just test your own system back and find the optimal stop settings and eventually the take profit points.
