  • 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.

This week's trades

Monday has no trade as last friday range reached 255 points.
Next week on Monday is US closed (Memorial day).
This means no trade on Friday anyway. And right there is IFO 10h too.

Smells like the bigger moves will be seen on Tuesday and Thursday.
And today heading for 11674 upper resistence to turn down again.
Looking forward to these 2 days!

Good trades
GFIs1

New situation

Last friday price came out south of daily Kumo - but closed within again.
This morning price is definitely out of Kumo as the bottom line came up to
@ 11471.
If price still is traded south of Kumo we can look again to trade a Walzer.
Higher vola during this week and good volume until Thursday seems
obvious.

Interesting start


Gap this morning - jumping over 11674.
Price still in Kumo. But opens above down flag!
The next resistance is @ 11779.
Scenario today long until that price and then sideways.
Thursday taking out money of the markets for long weekend.
That might be the counter day to today ;-)

Tuesday trade

After a tremendous upmove in the first minutes after opening,
all things are on the table. The jump is a result of the EUR/USD.

This gives a trade short from 10:30 to 12:00
entry @ 11827
exit @ 11800
result +27 points

IB vol very high!
Risky trade for strong nerves only.

GFIs1

PS: even the trade was very well placed (counter trend) - the final
result is NOT that good as the Walzer was this morning on that
very special pattern

It is because of the speech of Mr. Coeure from the ECB.

In the other thread I followed the nice Walzer pattern.
It was indeed valid - ONLY - because IB 30 minutes had a range of > 115 points.

Here the Walzer results:

That might be the counter day to today ;-)

As thought on Tuesday - the moves are on Tuesday, on Wednesday no real pattern
but nearly a Doji.
Today we can see a good volume and maybe a good ride down - so fasten seat belts!

Good trades

Nevertheless the FDAX might be as noisy as the ES yesterday before the FED minutes.
The ECB minutes are due today at 1330CET / 0730 AM ET.
