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

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.

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

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.

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
