  • 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.

3 Targets...


GFIs1 View Post
First target was reached yesterday - today 6407/12 in sight.
Third target 6450/66 in this move foreseen.

EDIT: Second target 6407 exactly reached this morning

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

We have reached all three target levels now. (Third target 6450 was missed by 2.5 points)
This area seems to be a resistance area - some move back to make higher highs
is natural. That pullback scenario should happen tomorrow.
So tomorrow's trade will most likely be a short.

Leaning out of the Window..

..again.

Looking for the bigger picture in the Dax - I tend to see that the downside here has ended for now.
Lowest price did not test 6200 and the daily Ichimoku shows that the downmovement below the
cloud is balanced for that week. The weekly cloud shows hard support @ 6200.

To make it short - rising prices in the Dax should be seen in the months to come.

This does not influence the movements from day to day though. In the long run there are some weak
resistancies below 6800 and 7000 (as usual here).

Looking forward for some nice up movements to come.

Some Insight

..Noise on 10:30 bar...

but recovered - and the trade is on track.
This is why a Stoploss is set far away enough to avoid negative results when
the volatility is not in "sync" with the entry/exit time of the system.

Good trades!

Week 21 result

This week the system took five trades.

Four of the trades were positive and
one trade was neutral.
Total weekly result plus 122 points.
So the may result came after the
mixed results of the previous weeks
to plus 118 points.

Happy long weekend
and cheers to all "Independent Green
Card holders".
