Tomorrow Tuesday and then Wednesday

Wednesday will be the last of the month. And of third quarter.
Important day for some companies - when having end of fiscal year (like Apple).

Tomorrow the moves will be made - while on Wednesday only some fine tuning will be seen.
My guess is to see a settle price for the Dax around 9350 for Wednesday closing.

Good trades

Just to make sure that every FDAX trader gets the rumor/news: Eurex is said to offer a Mini FDAX soon.
Some key points that percolate:

Yeah thanks @choke35

it is somewhat riduculous on IB margins: today I checked what happens with them:

Price of Dax is 94xx now.
Lower than previous days - but - IB margins went up to over 12K today for the 1st contract.
That is

GFIs1

Don't forget - tomorrow last of month and 3rd quarter

Not only that - also the vola surcharges during the last months are
Hopefully the Eurex doesn't screw up this chance (like FX).
I would really appreciate to get back to a reasonable position sizing / scaling.
