Holiday season

No greetings from here...

But some Warning:

The summer weeks are often part of playing on the markets with
very different volumes during one session.
Every "good looking" trade can hold very thin support on the long run.
Repeatedly - believe it!

Thus staying at the sidelines is not bad - markets will react more normal
from end of August again.

Hi, may i ask what was your trigger for a BUY ?

Friday was an inside day. Showing possible weakness of buyers for Monday.
Sold 10098.0 stoploss 10102.5 target 10005.0

Hi, may i ask what was your trigger for a BUY ?

Good morning zmaj

My trigger is nearly always the IB 30 min candle (of same day).
Today that one was green.
So I took the long after a small rebound from 10:30 - as rule for Monday says.
As you can see my exit time is also defined...
Stop loss triggers 30 points away from entry.

Hope this helps.

Beautiful DAX

right there with you
short 10116.5 stoploss 10128.0
The daily chart is showing a good promise.
July 14th is the strongest day.
Therefore looking for the price to move below 10101.5 in order for more sellers to come and join our cause.
