  • 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.

Week 35 results

This week was extraordinary concerning markets:
- highest volatilty
- highest volume
and for the traders:
- margins went to new highs (at least with some brokers) **

So this week had 3 trades
Two negative (-42 - 30 points)
One positive +40 points
weekly result - 32 points

Points since week 2: 390

GFIs1


** despite margins jumped up (with futures and derivatives) - the volumes in the markets spiked up extreme...

First move in the morning was promising - the trade bit in plus.

But looking at my statement in upper post: "IB vol very low"
made it...
The countermove was still with low volume topping entry.
That is risk of last day of month.

Thanks for asking...
Today is a very special day - we had already some high gaps and much volatilty in past days.
So my stop is 30 points - be it adequate or false.
Nothing to predict - trades in this situation are of course of higher risk.
For conservative view - stay at the sidelines the next 2 weeks.
Even my system has sometimes "bad" entry or exit times - over the year it has more
winners than losers.
Hope this helps

I can't believe how high your DAX margins on IB are - they're ridiculous

IB Margins


Yeah - @PeakGrowth the things are extreme:
Were intraday margins last year around 7K rising to 12K
now they were 16K intraday and the moment of high vola
as they skipped the intrady margin - it was 32K this week...

This has nothing to do with the market itself - it looks like
IB wants to get rid of "small" customers...
And use the moment for their strategy.
