Good morning,

wasn't the original idea dax short (9:30 - fdax:12296, not 10:30 to 13:00) or am I wrong?

Thanks,
Alex

Today is a special day:
1) ECB
2) previous day 164 points range...

so entry and exit point is different / rule

Good trades

Today's trade


Special wednesday:
Short as nearly always - but ending BEFORE ECB decision came out.
And we landed with some nice points as entry and exit time were good.
Chart here:

My wednesday's ruleS

As we know - wednesday is giving nearly the most points over the year
trading the Dax intraday with looking at patterns.
So 95% are short trades.
I do have basically two rule sets for Wednesdays:
1) a short trade rule set (for IB green and for IB red candle)
2) a extended rule set for normal days with no US numbers, no ECB day, no short week, no extra vola on Tuesday
Thus ALL my entry and exit times are specially MADE on these occasions.
It is the most complicated rule set I have for any given day.
If you read carefully through this thread - you will find a lot of different entry- and exit-times.
As the trades normally are announced before taken with entry and exit TIME - you can see that there is no
hindsight "best guessing"
Unfortunately the rule set is quite complicated especially for a day like today and a programming seems difficult.
The rule set in fact has not been changed much since four years.

As I need not a lot of time to analize the market at the opening / comparing with yesterday's hi/lo and eventual
gap on today's start - I need not much screen time for my decision. Once fixed when to take the trade this is
programmed then for entry and exit as well as the stop loss setting. So no more survey needed.
Trading normally a max of 3 days within a week - there is no longer a big time investment.
That time was needed to develop the patterns for every weekday.

Hope this helps
GFIs1

Think, you still didn't get the difference between systematic trading and your 2 days of scalping ...

Besides: The FDAX had a range of more than 280p today and you bore us with scalps that netted 47p
and that had higher average losses than wins.
Who do you think would be impressed by this kind of yield on a trend day?

If your foremost desire is to tout scalping results, what about opening a journal of your own
instead of cluttering a proven system thread? I'm sure, your scalping fanboys would find you.

Friday


Yesterday a trending day with a large down move.
Looks like that could continue today.
KijunSen is @ 11896 - and horizontal: so a closing on that one is highly possible.
A move down around 11840 area can be previewed.
Some US numbers this afternoon at 14:30.
Here no daily trade: but if a bolder move down is to see we can
look to get maybe a entry for a WienerWalzer.

Good trades
GFIs1
