  • 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.

As said: @GFIs1 's low-volume rules make sense: Normally no trades.

"surprised he has never had slippage even if volume is high"???????
Think you still didn't get what slippage is ...

I do know what slippage is precisely.As I often suffer from it in fast thin markets like DAX/DOW.

Wednesday

Very interesting situation in the Dax:

Yesterday price came back from above the daily Kumo to its Kumo top at end of session.
Volumes were quite high in the second half of the session.
Some indications that we see a island reversal in the daily.
In the hourly chart price is IN the Kumo.

What does it mean for today's trading day?
Opening could be in the daily Kumo - making a stronger down gap which maybe will
not be closed during the day.
As it is Wednesday and short is indicated - this could be a stronger down move again.

Trade will be taken if IB > 5K which seems after yesterdays trading quite possible.

Why make a trade today as yesterdays range was greater than 150 points? I thought u didnt trade the next day if the previous days range was 150 points or more as it was one of the rules??

On Wednesday 150p rule is not working - but on all other days.
Just for clarifying. I know the rule set is more complex as it looks on first sight.

Thursday thoughts

Dax at opening starts again at upper Kumo.
The dive into Kumo of yesterday seems history.
Looks like we can see some good upmovement in a low volume day.
Can be quite steady - and surprising.
Not much noise expected.
Look at the 30min. volume also.

Friday trade

No trade today - yesterday range over 150 points.

Price still in daily Kumo - means erratic moves possible.

Good trades

Wednesday trade

Dax short 9:30 to 15:30

entry @ 11254
exit @ 11191
result 63 points

IB vol very good

Price outside (south of) Kumo
Friday will be last of week and last of month - thus some good volume expected this week still.
