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.

Hi @alexk1968
it was even before... the down movement did not hold today.
I am looking to see with these relative low volumes today what
tomorrow will be on the plate

Good trades

Open sceanrio for Friday

It is highly probable that after hours tonight the price is moving up more.
That could lead to a nice friday trade being bounced at resistance at around 11923
and coming down before end of day.
Just let's see...
Price is still in daily Kumo. Some indecision is still seen - which makes trades not easy.

Friday


Today is IFO announcement @ 10:00
Looks like the volume is still there.
Then upon the IB a decision about when to start: 9:30 or 10:30
At least all interesting.
Monday Memorial Day.
All influences today's price.

Is'nt it a bit of a risk/gamble holding a position during the IFO release??

Thanks for asking:
Of course I do NOT trade before IFO numbers because the price can be shaking out any stop loss!
There is one exception in my rules here: shhh - only for you: if price during IB is getting out of
previous days range - then I start on 09:30 already - and before IFO numbers. And as you can
see in the direction of IB candle. Easy - isn't it?
The IFO numbers seem to shine through already at the beginning of the day

Good trades!

Confused.You say you do not trade /have a position over IFO release? But todays release was at 10:00
, but you had a open position between 09:30- 14:30???

Being from London you should know the meaning of the word "exception" in the section you quoted
Re-read it and it might become clear.
