  • 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.

Tuesday Dax Closing preview

Even there is no system trade in the Dax today, I am previewing
the CLOSING (17:30 CET) of the DAX today @ 6627.
This would underline that the signal for today would run in a SL.

Happy trades
GFIs1

Wednesday trade

Looks like another red day in the Dax...

Taking a short from 09:30 to 15:30

entry @ 6446

exit @ 6486

result minus 40 points

up move was quick and "deadly"

Most likely a short in the morning on WEDNESDAYs... (over 90%)
So if you are not sure - bet on a short after the opening range
except when Monday AND Tuesday were already short.

Happy trades!

How do you define the opening range? Is it 8:00 - 9:00 CET or after the cash open 9:00 - 9:30 CET or something else?

Thanks for your work!

Hi Templeton

Trading system is only cash time 09:00 to 17:30.
So opening range here is always 09:00 to 09:30.

Discussino about today's trade

Futures Edge on FIO

Are you a NinjaTrader user?

 
The rule set is quite reliable as long the previous day's volatility
stays in a certain range.
Yesterday there was a NO trade situation after the vola of monday
exceeded the vola range defined.
But yesterday's range exceeded the defined range too..
Therefore the NO trade rule would have brought a better result today.
Anyway - this situation I did not have til now - will consider
this for next time coming.

Happy trades
GFIs1

Optimizing the wednesday rule

Have adjusted the rule set for this special case which is described above.
This gives at least a better result than today's.

Hope the constellation shows soon up again.

Chop Chop

Strange Dax movements today: CCO = chop chop only
Was already clear as opening range showed that a real trend did not
exist. Will consider this for fridays. Either no trade or entering
a trade later than on normal fridays.

Happy to finish this week positive (plus 7 points).

Have a nice weekend
GFIs1
