Welcome to futures.io.

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.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Week 19 result

Another chop chop week in the DAX

Took four trades - Tuesday was without a trade which was a good decision.
Two trades negative - with one SL of 30 points and one of 40 points.
Two trades positive with 38 + 39 points.

Weekly result plus 7 points.

Have a nice weekend

..First target 6352, second target 6407

First target was reached yesterday - today 6407/12 in sight.
Third target 6450/66 in this move foreseen.

Today will be a short from 10:00 to 13:30

entry @ 6394

exit @ 6392

result plus 2 points: exit was 1h late

GFIs1

EDIT: Second target 6407 exactly reached this morning
Looks like the entry (on 30 min close) was perfect

EDIT II: Next target seems possible this afternoon - good trades!

After a holiday - no trade day - ..

Why did you pay attention to this holiday? It's no holiday in USA, GB and only partially in Germany. Eurex was open anyway. Same for next Monday.

Taking a day off is (very) ok, but this holiday is just a non-event.

Many Thanks

Hi @FGBL07

For the Dax it is a non event as you state.
In our country the stock exchange is closed - everyone on holiday.
So were we. One day without screen time is not bad either.

GFIs1

PS: the trade after the rules would have given some points
