ALARM: Eurex down more than one hour

Very bad signal - Eurex halted right after 11:03 and all derivatives are down.
No futures, no CFDs, no Options. ALL down. And even more....
While EUR/USD is heading down.

Such markets are NOT tradeable: All indices have a lag and nothing seems normal.

There is even some discussion on some channels that this "IT problem" was made
to halt the explosive Dax on some level.

Anyway - be alerted by such strange behaviour - man made - from the markets!

Good Trades
GFIs1

12:51h

Seems like the trading has restarted now...

But be extremely cautious - things may be out of normal behaviour for the rest of the day!

PS: best to close the open trades and stay at the sidelines!
One does not not know what comes next:

Leo and Xetra just made normal waves the whole time.

Looks like a consol from which +/- 200 is likely.

YES - I do not interfere with entry and exit times that are important part of the rules.
In fact - today I was online - while normally the trade is sort of "set & forget".
To get a normal longtime result (in this thread 4 years) I will not interfere - even during
exchange problems to have fair results.
My warnings were for some followers to get out when things are no longer normal.

You are right - the waves were "normal" - but the volume was not :-)
It broke down after EUREX was down.
