IT was a TRY! within a difficult area - where we find NO volume but a lot of volatility during the day.
I was putting a stop of 20 points - and it was nearly taken out too...
You are right - there is normally better to no trade in this...
But coming weeks will be weaker in volume and then some moves are not predictable any more.
This is why I announced in the post that it is higher risk

good journal and I am checking out what stop should I do for FDAX and 20 points is smart idea if you want to stay in the game longer to see if target hits. for me, any idea, i test for 4-6 months to get an average

I used to do FESX now which doesn't scare me as much as FDAX

Hi @emini_Holy_Grail

To stay in the DAX-game (MY intraday trades with PATTERN) needs 30 points.
Everything else IS IN THE NOISE...

Just have a look back...
Good trades!

Sommer weeks

A small outlook to the coming weeks of July and August:
The first half year is through - a pause is in the stars.
Many traders are absent during summer months - so
volume will be lower than normal. (Greece turbulences
are going to sleep too).

My entries for a trade will only take place when the IB
volume is >5000 contracts. Meant for the first 30 mins.

So this is NOT a new rule (@CPRICE76) but one that
helps to survive in shallow waters of the summer months.

Watch for very low volumes and stay at the sidelines.
From mid August things might normalize...

Wednesday trade

..skipped

just political movements without normal background:

Volume is still good - but direction is pretty hard to predict.
Might well be a green day on a "normal" Wednesday Short.
