You say you do not trade /have a position over IFO release?

I am happy to tell you that you do not have to reread all 2080 posts in this thread again.
My rules are here to protect me from bigger losses.
So today: Price is in Kumo. Second, previous day was not out of 150p range. Third - IFO day which
"NORMALLY" starts 30 minutes after IFO number release - should be 10:30. Fourth - there
is a special rule (I said - shhhhh) to get in one hour earlier if the price during IB is getting OUT
of yesterdays daily range:
ALL this happened today. If you like to reread my post from 08:46 this morning - there exactly
this special occasion was posted - BEFORE it happened.
Just to be clear - nothing hidden...

Have a relaxed weekend
GFIs1

One Serious question to YOU

Thank you for following this thread regularly.
As I am posting now more than 3 years nearly without any pause how I take one trade per day on the Dax
I am looking back to many dear followers with just ONE simple question:
"Could you take personal profit(s) on my announcements in this futures.io (formerly BMT) thread here before taking a trade?"
A easy yes or no is perfect - if you have comments - feel free to put them here or by pm.
I will of course give feedback on the sum of answers - including the ones by pm.

Thanks
GFIs1

Sorry, I do not understand the question you are asking.

As a regular reader and casual poster: yes.

I do not imitate the trades, but the main positives for me are:
  • longer time horizon (scalping posts are a dime a thousand)
  • your discipline of execution
On days like Thursday (ECB minutes) I surely have a different risk
preference, but I respect and appreciate your style.

Good trades and thanks for sharing your experience!

Thanks for doing it, GFIs1! Personally I do not, probably I could if I wanted to trade by signals, but I highly value your perspective, view, thought process, daily horizon. It helps me to develop, learn DAX, improve my own analysis and market uncertainty acceptance. Danke schoen!

Trade to live. Not live to trade.

Tuesday trade

Very nervous market at start this morning.

Dax LONG 11:00 to 15:00

entry @ 11770
exit @ 11740 (SL)
result -30

IB vol very high

GFIs1

comment: many influences right now - the counter direction
was not really playing out today.
but some more gap closing down or even heading for getting out south
of Kumo is still possible.

Tomorrow no trade - as the range today was exceeding rules

@GFIs1 , I have a similar opinion as @choke35 . I have learned a great deal from your ideas and discipline. Thank you for your commitment.

Good Trades,

ONE possibility rests to take a trade tomorrow.
But we need to wait for end of IB to decide.
Stay tuned
