Isnt it risky to hold a position through Data release ( ie ADP )? Or gambling that the figure comes out in your favour??

Data releases are always shaking markets. If you enter "near" that time - it may takeout all your stops.
Which is not recommended.
Normally I do not trade "over" US data - depending on the importance of the numbers.
But for today:
These US numbers are second category (for me) in the Dax and I do not consider them having much influence
at least on the direction.

This week was not only good with trades (finally) but the journal here has reached more than 180K pagehits.

Thanks for reading!

The frequency is still amazing - and that only in this journal.

a bit late for Thanksgiving - but at least before Christmas

Thoroughly deserved! You are one heck of a disciplined, patient system guy and great to see it pay up again.

Hey rat - thanks for your nice words.
Would love to see you on the upward sequence again - as in OLD TIMES :-)
Take your time and start over again next year.
For sure we will meet the same clavichords* (if you know what I mean).

Happy week
GFIs1

For those who do not know about clavichords: just google it
To be honest I have built one very long ago - so I know about
