Looks like a perfect day for short in the Dax.
As noted in chart of last weekend:

Tomorrow Wednesday IFO numbers 10:00h!

Good trades

GFIs1

Edit: The contrary from above:
.. 300 points up from the low - what the market did in no time but with high volume..
9:00 to 9:30: 10733 contracts
9:30 to 10:00 11598 contracts
which is impressing

There was only one red candle the in the run up. All others were green. Not even a Walzer
signal came up. Very interesting day. Did not take any trade as by the rules.

Long or short? I am assuming long but you did not mention it!

long...
The direction is always given by the direction of the 30m candle after IFO number - today 10:00 to 10:30.
Exception is on Friday where the direction is opposite at the same time.

thanks for the missing puzzle piece

We face a special combination of days over this weekend:

Friday: 2nd to last trading day before last of month - no Friday rule
Monday: US Memorial Day - no trades here...
Tuesday: Last day of month - Special Friday rule

Without discipline no gains to make!
Looking forward to pull the trigger the right way.

Today US memorial day: US stock exchanges are closed.

No trades here as normally volumes are lower in the Dax.
The day trade rules do not allow a trade: the system does
not work with low volumes. Prices may jump without
any news during such periods.

Tomorrow Tuesday "Last of the month" with a trade.
And Wednesday again.

GFIs1

Edit 9:30
First candle with 6503 contracts - but NO direction...
